Another reason why Massage is AWESOME
Did you know that massage can speed up your body’s ability to heal? Yes through massage, we are able to reduce swelling, provide pain relief, improve circulation. By doing that you feel better, sleep better and recover faster. Massage is effective, especially when done under a doctor’s care, which is why I work with your medical team whenever possible. When massage can start depends on your procedure, I have been working on clients as soon as the day after.
Over the past 18 years I have worked with many clients recovering from a wide variety of surgeries (ex. knee replacements, shoulder surgery, hip replacement, open heart surgery, mastectomy, back surgery). More and more, I have begun to work with clients who have undergone cosmetic surgery, especially liposuction (ex. Tummy Tuck, Brazilian Butt Lift, Mommy Makeover, Breast Reconstruction, Spider Vein treatments).
While recovering from surgery, you need some support. One client recently told me that she loved that I was working with her several times a week (right after surgery) and was able to talk to her about how her body was recovering. She appreciated the whole body approach to recovery, meaning we customize the massage to your needs that day. When you decide on surgery, you are investing a lot of resources into making that happen. You need someone experienced who is focused on your recovery.
If you are considering surgery, contact me to see if massage works for you.
