Often individuals have problems with healing, after surgery. You can heal faster after surgery by improving lymph flow in the body. Manually draining the lymphatic system improves circulation and helps reduce inflammation from the healing process. Reducing inflammation can speed the healing process. To help reduce the risk of a keloid scar, it is beneficial to receive a LymphPractic or lymphatic drainage session post surgery. Depending on the severity of the surgery, wait 24-72 hours after surgery to receive a gentle lymphatic session. A lymphatic therapist can help improve circulation in the surgery area without getting close to the surgery site.
