Lymphatic Drainage Massage for Post Surgery Liposuction


Why You Need Post Surgery Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

Our human body is naturally equipped with a cleansing mechanism, called the Lymph System, which helps the cells get rid of any toxic fluids. If the lymphatic system is not functional, it will cause the body to swell and start aching causing you to feel sick and sluggish. However, if there is any kind of disruption in the lymph system, due to surgery, for example, a lymphatic drainage massage could be a viable solution to assist the lymph system in flushing out the unwanted fluids and kick start the natural cleansing mechanism.

What Is A Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

If you’re getting curious, the lymphatic drainage massage is a specific kind of massage therapy that was developed for the treatment of lymphedema i.e. the swelling that results from the excessive fluid that accumulates after surgery. Besides, there can be various other causes of lymphedema and you can seek professional massage therapists to have lymphatic drainage massage in Virginia and other parts of the world to relieve the condition.

Why You Need Lymphatic Drainage Massage After Surgery?

It is common for our body parts to swell to a certain extent after surgeries and it’s part of the natural healing process. It happens because of disruption of natural pathways that lymph system takes. Besides, when you undergo a surgery, your immune and lymphatic systems are doing extra work for repairing as well as cleansing the tissues. However, if there is prolonged or excessive swelling, it may cause problems like increased pain, persistent swelling, greater infection risk, and scar formation.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage has proven to be quite a successful treatment for such excessive swelling that results due to a surgery. It helps increase fresh blood circulation – which carries nutrients that play an important part in tissue healing – and also stimulates and supports the lymph system to quickly flush out any excess fluid and debris from the cells. As a result, accelerated healing can be experienced with minimum risk of formation of adverse scars. Furthermore, it is also helpful in reducing the infection risks and bruising, swelling and pain as well.

Another powerful benefit delivered by lymphatic drainage massage is that it helps the nervous system to calm down. When your body gets relaxed, the healing mechanisms that have been naturally integrated get activated and a quick recovery can be expected.
