At Rejuline Skin and Body Med Spa, we have various Post Operatory packages available and all are based on every client’s needs.
Treatments include different modalities to promote healing after surgery, liposuction, etc. We have advanced treatments which promote healing, stimulates circulation, tissue repair, reduce swelling, prevent and soften hardening while providing a total repair of the lymph system. The most popular treatment is the Lymphatic massage.
What is Lymphatic drainage?
Lymphatic drainage massage is a form of gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body.
The lymphatic drainage massage reduces swelling and improves circulation throughout the lymphatic system. This post liposuction massage usually forms part of a treatment program called decongestive lymphatic therapy (DLT), very recommended by surgeons after a aesthetic procedure as liposuction or lipectomy.
Furthermore, a Post Op is considered to be from the day after surgery up until 8 weeks after. If you are more than 8 weeks, or 2 months past your surgery, do not book this treatment. Please look into advanced post surgery body contouring treatments instead.
Anything after 2 months would no longer be considered post op.
LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE PROMOTION
One of the main benefits of the lymph system is the removal of harmful waste and toxins from the body. For this to occur, lymph has to be flowing smoothly.
Many people report feeling more energy after a manual lymphatic drainage treatment. It can last for a few hours to a few days.
LD massages reduce pain and stress and promote healing, which makes them perfect for anyone who has been having trouble sleeping.
When the normal flow of lymph is seriously interrupted (by medical treatment, infection, cancer treatments, surgeries, or health or medical conditions), you could end up with lymphedema, which causes major swelling in one or more limbs. Compression therapy is typically used to prevent lymphedema, but lymphatic massage can also greatly help reduce swelling and prevent lymphedema from getting worse. Some studies also suggest MLD can also be preventative.
Often, poor leg circulation is automatically chalked up to poor vein health. However, it could you the lymph nodes in your legs – and not just your veins – that are the culprit. If you’ve started to notice swelling, pain, or discomfort in your legs, see your MLD therapist for a specific MLD treatment that will help clear up the lymph in your legs.
Lymph massages have been known to stimulate healing and regenerate tissue at a scar site after surgery. In addition, it can detoxify the body and reduce swelling – both issues which are usually experienced after surgery. Once you’ve been cleared by your doctor, book a massage with our qualified, Lymphatic Drainage Massage trained therapists.
How is the Lymphatic Drainage done?
We’ll start by applying light pressure and gentle movements that range from tapping and stroking to rubbing and pushing. Next, using flat hands and all fingers, they’ll gently stretch your skin in the direction of the lymphatic flow to encourage drainage.
A lymphatic drainage facial works similarly, but may also include soft brushing movements on the face.
Bodily lymphatic drainage usually lasts up to an hour while the facial version is typically a little shorter. Deep breathing exercises, which promote better lymphatic circulation, tend to be combined with both.
Before and After
Lymphatic drainage is generally safe. However, check in with your healthcare provider first if you have:
- a high risk of blood clots
- congestive heart failure
- an active lymphatic infection
- swelling with no known cause
A lymphatic drainage massage can help you expedite your body's natural way of getting rid of toxins by pushing fluid to the lymph channels through a gentle and targeted technique. Getting yourself a Lymphatic Massage now can lead not only to lose weight but to good overall health.
Here are the 19 symptoms of a clogged immune system:
- Swelling in your fingers (rings fitting more tightly?)
- Feeling stiff and sore when you wake up in the morning.
- Cold hands and feet.
- Brain fog.
- Chronic fatigue & Depression.
- Bloating & Excess weight.
Sometimes when you are under physical, emotional, or chemical stress, the lymphatic system can become stagnant. Since massage increases the flow of the lymph fluid, the fluid pushes these stagnant toxins through the system, causing the symptoms of detox or sickness to rear their ugly heads.
Acute inflammation, Malignant tumors, Thrombosis and major heart problems are all contraindications to lymphatic drainage massage. Lets look at these one at a time.
Immediate results are general lightness and deep relaxation. The fluid drainage can occurs 24-48 hours post session. The difference in drainage also varies from person to person, depending on the health of their lymphatic systems.
Often, many people have to urinate right after a massage. Then there's the issue of metabolic waste, which is produced by muscles in the course of everyday function. When your muscles are tight or you've got a major knot, it constricts circulation in those areas, inhibiting the body's ability to flush out this waste.
The physical manipulation in massage has two major physical effects: Increase in blood and lymph circulation. Relaxation and normalization of the soft tissue (muscle, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments), which releases nerves and deeper connective tissues.
It Kicks Dehydration to the Curb
That means that you have to restock up on all of the water you lost during your massage.
