Empowering YOU to Create Your Best Lymphatic Health
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) uses gentle, rhythmic strokes to amplify
the body's own fluid return
and detoxification system.
Benefits of MLD include:
Massage can be SAFE and THERAPEUTIC during and after cancer treatment.
Oncology Massage is the adaptation of massage techniques to safely nurture the body of anyone affected by cancer and it's treatments. Many cancer treatments require lifetime massage modifications.
If you are in, or have had a history of cancer treatment, seek a qualified oncology massage trained therapist. www.s4om.org
An oncology massage therapist will adapt massage techniques to safely meet the changing bodywork considerations during and after treament.
Lymphedema is a chronic, but managable condition involving protien rich fluid accumulation in the tissues.
Lymphedema often develops as a result of treatment for cancer.
Lymphedema can also result from Chronic Venous Insufficiency, or from an inborn genetic predisposition.
A comprehensive management approach includes Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Compression Bandaging or Garmenting, skin care, exercise, weight management and daily self-care practices.
Treament may involve an intensive reduction phase, followed by a long-term management plan.
As a Certified Lymphedema Therapist, I am trained to assist you in creating a workable plan to successfully live with lymphedema.
Manual Lympatic Drainage, scar tissue work, and proper compression can make all the difference in esthetic outcome for the post-plastic surgery patient.
