Lymph Drainage Therapy
The Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT) that I offer aims to gently and rhythmically move lymph fluid through the body and enhance the functioning of the immune system. LDT can be used for a wide range of purposes to include strengthened resistance to illness.
It can be an effective tool if you are preparing for a medical/dental procedure or surgery given its potential to reduce swelling (edema) to the post-surgical site & to aid in the formation of smoother & more functional scar tissue.
NOTE: I am not a "Certified Decongestive Therapist"(CDT) who is trained to work with those individuals whose medical condition requires them to wear compression bandages or compression garments on a permanent basis. However, should you contact me, I will supply you with the names and information of qualified healthcare professionals who provide this service : )
Therap.Massage & Deep Tissue
_Therapeutic Massage uses a variety of manual techniques such to relieve tension and restore function to soft tissues of your body that may be a source of pain or restricting your range-of-motion(ROM). Over time, improved function to these areas may be restored, allowing you to return activities you enjoy.
_Deep Tissue is a form of therapeutic massage which focuses on affecting change to deeper layers of soft tissue and fascia. These tissues will receive more preparation and "problem areas", such as sites with established scar tissue will receive extended focus to achieve desired results.
A wonderful (& optional) massage therapy tool to assist in "lifting" tissues of your body that may be highly congested, restricting your Range-Of-Motion (ROM), are sensitive to touch or are a source of pain. The cupping is integrated with other manual therapy techniques such as compression & is ideal as an aid when receiving work to the Ilio- Tibial Band (sides of the hips & thighs) & to the Plantar Fascia (soles of the feet 👣)
*Note: These soft, medical-grade silicone cups are designed for use in a therapeutic massage session & are not heated prior to use on the body. (i.e. "fire cupping" that requires glass cups & may be used in some medical modalities, such as Acupuncture).
CranioSacral Therapy(TM) optimizes the movement of cerebrospinal fluid(CSF) through the spine from the area just below the low back(lumbar-sacral region) and upward(superior) to areas within the skull. This therapy works within the body's central nervous system(CNS) & can provide a soothing & healing experience. It is effective for identifying & addressing areas of restriction. I follow an established and sequential protocol for a generalized benefit for the recipient.
Re-balance your systems in need by-way-of an integrated session that commences with CranioSacral Therapy, followed by Lymphatic Drainage of your Face and Neck and finishing with massage to your back, hips, legs, arms and feet. Ideal if you are new to any of the T.L.C. services.
