Lymphedema and Lymphatic Congestion

Lymphedema is a condition which results from the accumulation of lymph fluid in a region of the body.  The accumulation can have many causes including genetic issues, the treatment of cancer, injuries, surgery and infections. At Innovative Therapy we use complex decongestive therapy to decongest the tissues and teach you how to manage the issues.

The process of complex decongestive therapy includes but is not limited to –

  • Education on the lymphatic system, skin care, self-lymphatic drainage and specific movements to support lymphatic flow.
  • Lymphatic Drainage Techniques to decongest both the superficial and deep lymphatic flows. This is performed manually.  Some people call this a massage, but it is much more specific and effective than message.
  • Medical Compression Wrapping – Using layers of short stretch wrap the body region is wrapped to increase the effectiveness of the manually performed Lymphatic Drainage. MCW creates 24 hour a day treatment, accelerating your results.

Lymphatic Drainage Techniques support de-toxification of the body supporting your immune system, reducing swelling and decreasing pain.  It accelerates healing after surgery and disease.  The best thing is – IT FEELS GREAT!!
