Lymphatic Drainage: Post surgical modality. Used after medical and cosmetic procedures to ensure a more efficient healing process. Light, feather touch massage to reduce swelling, intended to encourage natural drainage of the lymph carrying bacteria away from the injury site towards the nearest lymph node and out of the body to induce healing. You may experience some increased or lower energy levels, increased urination or perspiration after the session as lymph fluid is leaving the body through various lymph nodes. This modality is highly recommended for Prenatal clients in their last term due to increased swelling in the extremities, as well as rheumatism, scleroderma, edema from injuries such as breaks and muscle strains/sprains, and post surgery like varicose vein and liposuction to decrease healing time. Manual lymphatic drainage is also suggested in many medicinally guided detoxes as it helps increase release of bacterial filled fluids. Nicole Miller Massage uses only hands, no machines in her sessions and treatments should not hurt. This an amazing modality without the painful pressure! This modality has the best effect with multiple sessions spaced out weekly, biweekly or monthly. Wearing loose clothing and staying well hydrated on days of treatments is advised to allow free movement of lymph fluids, however if given compression clothing for post surgery it's advised you follow your surgical Doctor's orders as long as advised.
