HAVING COSMETIC OR MEDICAL SURGERY?
Manual Lymphatic Drainage successfully alleviates pain and swelling and counters the pain and discomfort of post surgery. The nurturing, light touch promotes deep, rejuvenating relaxation. All forms of cosmetic surgery cause temporary bruising, inflammation, and loss of movement in the skin. Try a package of Manual Lymphatic Drainage treatments and experience not only a faster recovery, but a more comfortable one. You will look and feel better sooner, thus reducing your down-time. Also, by calming the nervous system, Manual Lymphatic Drainage induces deep relaxation and helps alleviate anxiety by depressing the release of stress chemicals.
WHEN SHOULD TREATMENTS BEGIN FOR COSMETIC SURGERY CLIENTS?
Preferably, a client should begin treatments before surgery. This helps to minimize the risk of post-surgical complications by removing toxic substances residing in the tissues. Also, by calming the nervous system, you will experience deep relaxation by encouraging the release of stress and anxiety causing chemicals.
HOW SOON AFTER SURGERY SHOULD MLD TREATMENT BEGIN?
It is best to start treatments immediately after surgery so that fluids in the tissues do not become congested.
IS PAIN AND DISTRESS ALLEVIATED POST-OPERATIVELY?
Absolutely. Manual Lymphatic Drainage will alleviate pain and swelling; thereby promoting rejuvenation of the tissues and deep relaxation. The slow and rhythmic movements stimulate touch receptors in the skin that carry messages of pleasure and block the pain messages. Clients often fall into a deep, restorative sleep and wake up with increase of overall well-being.
WHEN SHOULD MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE NOT BE USED?
Manual Lymphatic Drainage should not be used in the treatment of malignant cancer, acute inflammation with infection, congestive heart failure or thrombosis.
