Post Op Massage
What Is A Post Op Massage?
A post op massage is a type of massage that is specifically designed to help people recover from surgery. It includes Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage and Myofascial Release.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Speeds up healing by 10 times its normal rate
Reduces swelling, bruising and pain quickly
Softens scar tissue for a smoother appearance and increased flexibility
Post op massage is beneficial for Cosmetic Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Cancer Surgery, and many other types of surgeries.
How a Post Op Massage is Performed
A post op massage is performed using special techniques to help reduce pain and swelling, promote healing, and improve appearance and flexibility.
Manual Lymphatic Therapy will use a very light pressure with a double stretch across the lymphatic vessels in the skin towards the closest nodes on its way to the heart.
Myofascial Release is a deeper pressure. A light rolling of the skin for incisions for a smoother appearance. A stronger pressure for deeper scar tissue. Strokes are always adjusted to customer’s comfort.
