Massage for Post-Op Recovery

and Accelerated Healing

A post-operative massage is a gentle form of massage that increases blood flow and promotes recovery by targeting the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system helps process waste and absorbs fluids. After surgery, these fluids can harden, which is often painful. A post-operative massage prevents and treats this hardening of fluids by reducing inflammation and promoting circulation to the affected area.

The massages also serve as a tool to further promote the aesthetic you wish for yourself and aid in reducing things like scarring and discomfort.

 
Benefits of Massage on Recovery:
Post-operative massage therapy is tailored to help recovery and limit problems.

 

Here are some of the benefits you can expect:
 

Soft Tissue Repair

By carefully selected massage techniques, therapists can help promote circulation and blood flow throughout your body–although primarily in the area that was treated. This improvement of circulation allows for nutrients to easily be brought to certain areas. With the increase of nutrients, soft tissues have an easier time in repairing.

Less Scar Tissue

Another aspect that massages can aid with is in the reduction of scar tissue. Because the therapist is relaxing the muscles, they become supple. This helps decrease the chance of scar tissue forming. In addition, it can also help break up scar tissue that has already formed and promote healing and regeneration of these problem areas.

Accelerated Healing

Overall, with better circulation and easy access to nutrients–as well as just a general reduction of stress–your body will heal faster. With better blood flow and oxygen given to your vital organs and tissues, you can help your body to become more flexible, and thus regenerate and heal faster than without the massage.
