Pre and Post Operative Treatments
One of the biggest advantages to trying alternative and complementary practices like massage therapy, or cupping therapy/vacuum therapy, is that these methods don’t pose the risk for unwanted side effects like pharmacological drugs or surgery do, but sometimes surgery is needed.
Studies show that certain massage modalities and treatments can help boost immune function and speed up healing time without the use of any medications or even herbs. And these are just some of the benefits of cupping therapy.
Undergoing any surgical procedure means inducing physical trauma. Debra-Jean has specialized training and integrates manual post surgical massage techniques as well as vacuum therapy She utilizes a light, pain-free touch for clients with high post-operative sensitivity.
Inflammation is a leading cause of cell deterioration and death. By mobilizing stagnant lymphatic fluid, inflammation is reduced and washed away.
Additionally, post surgical massage and bodywork treatments increases the flow of endorphins, allowing clients to receive welcome feelings of relaxation and well-being. This, combined with a visible reduction in swelling and bruising, provides clients with immediate, positive results.
Following a surgical procedure, once someone is able to get up and move around, they are ready to receive post surgical massage or bodywork treatment. She can begin treating clients as soon as 24 to 48 hours after their surgery, prompting accelerated healing right away and cutting down on time spent in bed. For optimal results, clients are seen two to three times a week for the first few weeks after their surgery experience dramatic results for an expedited recovery.
We highly recommend pre-operative lymphatic treatments to start the process of moving the stagnant lymph. This treatment can be done either done manually or with gently vacuum therapy. Contact Debra-Jean for more information.
