Multiple Massage Modalities With The Goal Of Helping You Be The Best You Can Be!
Manual Lymphatic Drainage, also known as lymphatic massage and MLD, is a technique developed by Emil Vodder in the South of France over 100 years ago and brought to the United States by German instructors from the Foeldi Clinic, including my teacher, Guenter Klose. MLD massage uses light pressure and specific strokes to increase the flow of lymph in the body. The powerful but gentle technique is designed to detoxify the body of excess lymph fluid in patients with lymphedema. It is also used to reroute lymphatic fluid and reduce swelling after plastic or orthopedic surgery.
Our Post Surgical Lymphatic Massage may also include infrared light therapy, medicupping, stretching, and other therapies to help your body heal faster.

Keep the incision area safe!
Manual Lymphatic Drainage can be an effective part of post-surgery healing for facelift, tummy tuck and “mommy makeover” clients. I ensure client safety by following a strict massage protocol that includes:
No massage directly over scar until healed.
Manual lymphatic drainage massage utilized in adjacent areas without movement of the scar.
Swedish and NMT massage techniques used on other areas of the body as needed.
Client positioned on the table so as not to place body weight pressure on scars until healed.
Client positioned on the table with head properly elevated and bolster under knees.
Avoid massage overall internal sutures (especially important in facelift clients).
