When your system is not working well, it can affect every part of your body. The Cleansing Massage utilizes lymphatic draining techniques to keep your lymphatic system in good condition for optimum health. It can also counteract the effects of adverse lifestyle choices and environmental pollutants that can compromise the immune system.

Is Post-Op Lymphatic Drainage Massage Right For Me?

Benefits of a Post-Op Lymphatic Massage

After cosmetic surgeries like liposuction, tummy tucks, or arm, thigh, and Brazilian butt lifts, the lymphatic channels are disrupted and take about two to three months to make new connections. Plastic surgeons agree that adding a series of lymphatic massages to a patient’s post-op care routines can benefit their recovery.

The massage technique helps to reduce swelling and improve aesthetic results by decreasing congestion of the tissue. “The masseuse will massage extra fluid towards the lymphatic tissue so that it is more quickly absorbed by the body,” says Melissa Doft, MD, a New York City-based double board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon. And that can also help to prevent infection. “When there is lymphatic congestion, infection is a much higher risk, and you can have healing problems due to the swelling of tissue,” explains Richard Brown, MD, a double board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Scottsdale, AZ. “That, in turn, can lead to pressure on incision lines.”

While lymphatic massages may be most closely associated with body procedures, Dr. Doft is known to recommend them for patients undergoing facial surgeries (think facelifts), too. Since all types of surgeries result in swelling, they can all benefit, she says.

Expert Skin Care with Lymphatic Drainage Massage

We specialize in providing top-notch skin care through our expertly executed lymphatic drainage massages. This specialized massage session focuses on gently stimulating your body’s lymphatic system, enhancing the natural detoxification processes that contribute to healthy, glowing skin. Our excellent massage therapists apply a series of gentle, rhythmic motions that aim to encourage lymph movement, which is crucial for skin care as it helps to reduce bloat and puffiness, and promotes the elimination of toxins.

Unlike traditional massage techniques that may use deep pressure, lymphatic drainage massage employs light pressure coupled with soft, sweeping strokes to achieve its effect. This not only ensures comfort during your massage session but also imparts a soothing experience that pampers your skin and body. To experience the transformative skincare benefits of lymphatic drainage, contact us to book your session with our massage experts.

What Lymphatic Drainage Massages Does For Your Body

Improves Lymphatic System Function: Lymphatic drainage massages are specifically designed to stimulate the lymphatic system, helping it work more efficiently. This aids in the removal of toxins, waste products, and excess fluids from the body, reducing the risk of lymphatic congestion.

Reduces Swelling and Edema: Individuals with conditions like lymphedema, post-surgery swelling, or pregnancy-related edema can benefit significantly from lymphatic drainage massages. The gentle strokes help reduce swelling by promoting the flow of lymphatic fluid away from affected areas.

Enhances Immune Function: A healthy lymphatic system is crucial for a strong immune response. Lymphatic drainage massages help boost the immune system by removing harmful substances and supporting the production of immune cells.

Alleviates Pain and Inflammation: Lymphatic drainage therapy can provide relief from chronic pain conditions like fibromyalgia, arthritis, and migraines. By reducing inflammation and releasing endorphins, it promotes pain relief and relaxation.

Supports Postoperative Healing: Lymphatic drainage massages are often recommended after surgery to reduce postoperative swelling, bruising, and discomfort. They can accelerate the healing process and minimize scarring.

Enhances Skin Health: The improved circulation and detoxification resulting from lymphatic drainage massages can lead to healthier, clearer skin. They may help with conditions like acne, rosacea, and eczema.

Reduces Cellulite Appearance: Lymphatic drainage massages can contribute to smoother skin by promoting the removal of excess fluids and waste products from fat cells. This can reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Improves Digestive Health: By encouraging the movement of lymph in the abdominal area, lymphatic drainage massages can aid in digestion and relieve constipation or bloating.

Supports Weight Loss: Lymphatic drainage massages can assist individuals in their weight loss journeys by promoting the elimination of toxins and excess fluids, leading to a more balanced and streamlined appearance.

Balances Hormones: Some people find that lymphatic drainage massages help regulate hormonal imbalances, particularly in cases of menstrual irregularities or menopausal symptoms.

Enhances Energy Levels: Improved lymphatic circulation can boost energy levels, leaving individuals feeling more revitalized and less fatigued.

Speeds Recovery from Sports Injuries: Athletes often use lymphatic drainage massages to expedite recovery from sports-related injuries and improve overall athletic performance.
