Inflammatory issues are often related to the lymphatic system (rasa vahasrotas). This can result in various degrees of swelling in a limb or body part. Lymphatic drainage therapy assists the body in facilitating removal of excess water, wastes and toxins.
Pre and Post-Op Care: Lymphatic drainage is often recommended to patients to supplement their procedure before and as early as possible after surgery to prevent and alleviate the build-up of fluid and formation of scar tissue. During a post surgical MLD session the therapist gently massages the lymph nodes then guides post surgical edema towards those correlating lymph nodes. Post-op must be pre-approved by the surgeon.
