Just Had Surgery? Feeling Swollen and Sore? Lymphatic Drainage Therapy May Be Your Answer!

Just Had Surgery?  Feeling Swollen and Sore?  Lymphatic Drainage Therapy May Be Your Answer!

McLean, VA – October 13, 2011– Lymph-drainage therapy is a deeply relaxing massage that is useful for relieving chronic and subacute inflammations. While it is most commonly used in the treatment of cancer-related lymphedema (swelling from fluid retention), it also has many other applications. For example, it can relieve post-surgical edema, it can help remove residual anesthesia from the body, and it can assist in relieving pain and anxiety in patients suffering with fibromyalgia symptoms. In addition, by helping to remove toxins from the body, it also can be a valuable therapy for patients undergoing detoxification treatments for heavy metal or mold toxicity.

Explains Certified Massage Therapist Linda Glick, “The lymphatic system is a complex network of lymph vessels and organs that circulates lymph fluid and specialized cells throughout the body.
