Plan for your support and recovery process Outcomes of the Lymphatic drainage Treatments Many clients feel less tight and heavy with the swelling reduction due to the lymphatic stimulation ● Clients also feel less stressed and more relaxed after their treatment due to the relaxation response of the lymphatic sequences. One client recently said “I didn’t expect it to be so relaxing!” ● With the lymphatic treatments, we are reducing the risk of fibrosis (thickening) around the scar and affected surgery area ● You will have a smooth, even result ● Anaesthetics are evacuated from the system more quickly ● The inflammatory phase of recovery is sped up ● Wound healing is accelerated ● Scar tissue is laid down evenly ● Patients can return to their daily lives much sooner What is a post surgical lymphatic treatment? MLD is a very gentle and rhythmical sequence. There is no “squeezing” out of the lymph. It is a hands-on treatment and you will be placed in a supported position so you can relax and enjoy the treatment. Your treatment starts with boosting full body lymphatic flow. Gentle massage strokes are used in the swollen area to encourage lymphatic flow and reduce swelling Strokes re-route lymphatic flow away from lymph nodes and vessels affected by the surgery. Often the stomach is treated as this will help clear out that post surgical constipation.
