Post-surgical manual lymphatic drainage helps clear out excess lymph fluid caused by surgical trauma, which assists in faster healing and pain reduction. Scar tissue work is also performed when appropriate to help reduce adhesions after surgery which will help with overall appearance of surgical site and surrounding areas, increased lymphatic flow and help reduce future scar adhesion complications.
A gentle form of bodywork that stimulates the lymphatic system to reduce edema/systemic inflammation, remove toxins and waste, and encourage a healthy immune system. This type of treatment is appropriate for most (see contraindications). Very beneficial for patients: post-cancer, with lipidema/lymphedema, dealing with autoimmune conditions, with long COVID, with systemic inflammatory conditions such as Lyme, PCOS, endometriosis and many more.
An effective way to treat a wide array of tension and soft-tissue injury related conditions. Massage therapy sessions are designed for the client’s individual needs in order to provide the optimal outcome. Massage therapy can be beneficial for not only relaxing tense muscle tissue, but also can help to calm an over active sympathetic nervous system.
At Madison Lymphatics and Bodywork, we approach our sessions differently than other clinics that you may have been to before.
We always focus on the patient’s individual needs, analyzing a number of different aspects of their health, to see how Manual Lymphatic Drainage or Therapeutic Massage would be most beneficial. We believe that educating our patients on their lymphatic imbalances and what may be causing it is imperative to recovery and health.
All of our practitioners are graduates of nationally accredited schools and have thorough knowledge of the lymphatic system, anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, and an understanding of how it all works together.
Before each treatment, we do a full intake with the patient asking questions that will help formulate a session designed for optimal results. We never do pre-choreographed routines and continually strive to provide our patients with unique treatments that produce the desired outcome.
Our practitioners at Madison Lymphatics and Bodywork all use the Vodder Method in their Manual Lymphatic Drainage sessions. Modalities that may be used during a typical massage therapy session include Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Swedish Massage and Cranio-Sacral Therapy.
Sessions at the Madison Lymphatics and Bodywork are the perfect compliment to any physical therapy, chiropractic, or naturopathic care.
