Massage therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine used to prevent and alleviate symptoms and to promote relaxation, healing and an aura of health and happiness.
Our specially trained massage therapists understand that no two bodies are the same, hence no two massages are the same. We offer a wide range of treatments to address your specific needs.
Lymphatic Massage – Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Lymphatic massage, sometimes called manual lymphatic drainage, is a specialized type of medical massage. It is a useful treatment for post-operative swelling and bruising. In our practice, we recommend the treatment for most of our liposuction, tummy tuck and facelift patients. In our experience, at least three sessions with our specialists results in faster recovery and decreased down time.
Lymphatic massage aims to improve the flow of lymph fluid, which should reduce swelling. Massaging an area without swelling will make space for fluid to flow to those parts from more congested areas.
In addition to post-surgical patients, manual lymphatic drainage has also been shown to be effective in patients with:
- cancer treatments that involve the removal of lymph nodes
- patients with compromised immune systems or autoimmune diseases
- following some types of vascular surgery, such as vein stripping
- a buildup of fluid due to deep vein thrombosis
- health conditions that affect blood flow to the extremities, such as the hands and feet

Dr. Somenek took his time to explain the procedure to me and gave me realistic expectations about the pain and the recovery time.
