INTEGRATED LYMPH DRAINAGE
ILD massage enhances the flow of lymphatic fluids aiding your body's immune capabilities, and clearing areas of fluid congestion. This treatment benefits clients with lymphedema, varicose veins, post-injury and post-operative swelling, and more.
COMBINED DECONGESTIVE THERAPY
I am fully certified in Combined Decongestive Therapy (CDT). This is administered for the treatment and prevention of lymphedema.
This service gives the client the education,and skill set needed to eventually manage this condition on their own.
It involves integrated lymph drainage(ILD), which is a type of massage to help re-route the 'stuck' lymphatic fluid and send it back to the heart; self bandaging, which helps reduce limb volume. Once this is accomplished, the client will be fitted by a registered fitter for a compression garment which helps to stabilize the limb at that volume. The client is taught how to care for themselves, with exercise, skin care, self-massage, and lifestyle management strategies.
