Lymphatic Drainage Therapy for post-surgical swelling and Lymph disorders
Your lymph system is a prime mover of fluid in the body and is directly tied to your immunity. You can think of it as a vast interlocking alleyway system between houses in a city. The lymphatic system can be acutely damaged through surgery, trauma, chronic conditions, systemic issues, or poor circulation. Alternately you may want to work with your general health by including lymphatic massage as part of your health regime.
When the system malfunctions, an experienced therapist can help facilitate the fluid manually through the channels and nodes to relieve the pressure locally. Lymphatic Drainage NYC Therapy is generally slow and uses light touch to effectively move fluid when your body cannot.
Lymphatic massage therapy is incredibly useful for post-surgical swelling, people who have had lymph node removal or damage and chronic lymph conditions. Post-mastectomy patients may want to book this before entering into the Post-mastectomy program.
