M​anual Lymphatic Drainage * Certified Lymphatic Therapists * Complete Decongestive Therapy

BENEFITS OF MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE  

And why you benefit from using a certified lymphatic therapist.

After Surgery

  • Liposuction
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Arm, Thigh, and Brazilian Butt Lifts

After surgery it is common to have surgical trauma that includes damage to your lymphatic system.  

It takes time for lymphatic vessels to heal and make new connections.  As a result you will have more swelling and less capacity to absorb, and process, the excess fluid.

 A certified lymphatic therapist, (CLT) has 135 hours of specific training on the anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system and how to affect lymphatic drainage.  This training allows for a therapeutic session aimed at encouraging excess fluid into the lymphatic system where it can be processed and eliminated through both bowel and bladder.  

This is called lymphatic uptake and is done with light skin stretching techniques that both direct and propel lymph toward the lymph nodes associated with each area of the body-- known as watersheds.

Knowing the full anatomy of the lymphatic system allows a CLT to also reroute lymph around scars or other barriers that may hinder the transport of lymph toward it's associated lymph nodes.  This is done by using the bodies natural "bypass" system or anastomosis.  

This rerouting is also used after lymph node removal surgeries, radiation or primary lymphatic diseases and is used world wide for the treatment of lymphedema.  This knowledge and understanding is what sets a CLT apart from other providers.

After Cancer 

Manual lymphatic drainage is one of the main pillars in complete decongestive therapy. While you might know how to do “self-massage,” having weekly or biweekly sessions with a certified lymphatic therapist lets you better maintain your current size and improves tissue health and personal comfort.

Lipedema-Related Benefits

Lipedema can cause pain, but adding ma​nual lymphatic drainage to your routine can minimize the pain of swelling and help to decrease the build up of fibrous fatty tissue.

Lipedema can be treated with specialized water-assisted liposuction. Because of this, lymphatic massage will be an integral part of your recovery.

Chronic Venous Insufficiency

Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is often an inherited condition that’s progressive without treatment from a vein and vascular surgeon. However, you may still be faced with swollen and painful legs even with surgical intervention.

If the lymphatic system becomes overwhelmed by chronic swelling and increased workload, CVI can progress to lymphedema. You can manage this risk with manual lymphatic drainage. 

It helps maintain the health of your legs and lymphatic system.
