At The Om Spa Massage we have a highly trained therapist named Mary Krupp Licensed Massage Therapist she has integrated Eastern and Western techniques to create a unique experience for each individual client. Mary specializes in Pre and Post-Op Manual Lymph Drainage Therapy for Plastic Surgery and Oncology, Lymphedema Management.
This gentle technique enhances the natural peristaltic movement of the body’s lymphatic system to activate fluid circulation and stimulate the functioning of the immune and parasympathetic nervous systems. Lymph is the fluid in your body which transports fat, returns protein to the circulatory system and is an important part of fending of bacterial diseases. The lymphatic system absorbs dead and broken cells, as well as excess fluid (swelling).
Manual Lymphatic Drainage can give needed support for pre and post surgical procedures, reducing swelling, bruising, and minimizing the risk of infection. The lymphatic system runs through the body much as the circulatory system does and brings lymph into the blood and muscles. Pre-op treatments enhance the immune system in preparation for surgery. The Post-op treatments keep the immune system performing at its optimum level for quicker recovery and reduction in scarring. For the Oncology patients, this treatment can counteract adverse effects of chemotherapy as well as enhance healing after surgery.
Having Lymph drainage therapy performed can have many benefits on the body:
⦁ Detoxification of the body
⦁ Deep relaxation to aid insomnia, stress, and memory loss
⦁ Regeneration of tissue, including burns, wounds and wrinkles
⦁ Anti-aging effects
⦁ Relief of chronic inflammations and pain
⦁ Reduction in the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome
⦁ Frequent cold and flu symptoms
⦁ Headache and migraine
⦁ Cellulite and water retention
⦁ Myalgia affecting joints linings because of swelling
It takes a highly train professional like Mary Krupp LMT to perform the therapy properly as a very specific amount of pressure needs to be applied to stimulate the lymphatic system. The therapy itself is very relaxing experience as it is a gentle process of circular massage.
