Manual lymphatic drainage (lymphatic massage) can assist your body to decrease swelling.
With surgical trauma, your body has more fluid to drain than it has the capacity to manage. Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) helps the body process and eliminate extra swelling in less time than without intervention. A certified lymphatic therapist can assist by manually increasing your lymphatic capacity and rerouting swelling to areas of less congestion. This may also require routing swelling around scars that may be impairing the path of lymphatic vessels.
MLD will decrease pain, scar tissue and hardening of tissues. Your surgeon will advise you of the massage frequency you need initially. We will then work together to determine further frequency depending on how your body responds to treatment.
Lymphedema /Oncology Patients after completion of Physical Therapy.
Lymphedema management can be overwhelming, confusing and time consuming! Ongoing care and support from Pink Ribbon Lymphatic Massage can add vitality, resilience and educational support as you settle into your new routine. Or, maybe you have the daily activities down and you just want to relax and know that your lymphatic therapist has the highest level of certification possible and will provide you with gold standard care. I am here to help you at whatever stage you are in on your lymphedema journey.
I will always encourage you to return to your physical or occupational therapist if your swelling warrants clinical treatment. It's good to have an extra set of eyes to identify swelling before it becomes more advanced. Clients typically schedule monthly or bimonthly appointments
Lipedema can be painful. Adding Manual Lymphatic Drainage (lymphatic massage) to your routine can help to minimize swelling pain.
Pink Ribbon Lymphatic provides gold standard care for Lipedema patients post water assisted liposuction.
Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI)
This is often an inherited condition, and is progressive without treatment from a vein and vascular surgeon. Even with surgical intervention, you may be faced with swollen and painful legs. CVI can progress to lymphedema as the lymphatic system becomes damaged by the chronic swelling and the increased workload placed on the lymphatic system. Manual Lymphatic Drainage assists the lymphatic system in keeping up with this increased work load, helping to prevent or delay damage to the lymphatic system secondary to Chronic Venous Insufficiency.
