Lymphatic Drainage

In addition to traditional massage therapy, I also incorporate lymphatic drainage and compression bandaging based upon the renowned method of Dr. Bruno Chikly. Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle manual technique that stimulates fluid circulation, cleanses the body tissues, enhances the immune system, and stimulates the parasympathetic system which helps to release tension and spasm. This light, hands on technique stimulates the contraction of lymph vessels, which helps to remove excess fluids, the end result is reduced swelling and congestion. If you have recently undergone surgery, suffered trauma or have been diagnosed with lymphedema, LDT is a very useful and effective treatment method.

I most commonly use LDT for clients to help with rerouting of the lymph flow post surgery, lymph node removal or radiation. Lymphatic drainage is effective for both chronic(lymphedema) and acute swelling, for pre and post surgical conditions and sport related injuries, chronic sinusitis, breast congestion for lactating mothers, numbness and restricted movement due to scarring (radiation, incision and infection related), detoxification and relaxation.
