Breast Cancer Awareness

How Scar Tissue Release Therapy & Lymphatic Drainage Massage Can Help

Every year in the United States, roughly 264,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and about 2,400 men. Breast cancer is a horrible disease where the cells in the breast grow out of control and target the breast tissue. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and its goal is to raise awareness of the disease. Part of raising awareness is also raising funds specifically for research into the disease’s cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure. Therapeutic Medical Massage wants to help all our breast cancer survivors and patients feel more comfortable and relaxed. Our lymphatic drainage massage and microcurrent point stimulation (MPS) scar tissue release therapy can help both breast cancer patients and survivors tremendously.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage After Surgery

Our lymphatic system contains our immune system, which cleans our whole body. When the lymphatic system becomes clogged, wastes and fluids are built up in the tissue. It is common for breast cancer patients to undergo surgery such as a mastectomy, a double mastectomy, or a lumpectomy. All three of these surgery types are major surgeries that involve incisions to the body. With these major surgeries, lymphedema is a common complication to experience. Lymphedema is essentially the build-up of lymph fluid due to scarring or swelling (from surgery). This can be dangerous, lead to infection, and cause normal physiological processes to struggle in doing their job. This is where manual lymphatic drainage massage saves the day. Aruna will manually help the body remove toxic waste buildup. Lymphatic drainage massage can provide a great relief for patients after surgery. It can increase mobility and function by releasing those fluids which allows the patient to feel so much better.

MPS Scar Tissue Release Therapy

If you have painful scars from surgery or scars that bother you cosmetically, MPS scar tissue release therapy is the solution for you. MPS scar tissue release therapy is a method used to release scars which significantly reduces the restrictions of scar tissue. If left untreated, scar tissue can grow and restrict blood flow, which can eventually cause pain and obstruction in internal organs. These effects can take years to show up after surgery, it is best to schedule your first appointment when your doctor says it is okay to do so. MPS works to restore the flow of fluids, increase range of motion, accelerate cellular healing, and relieve chronic and acute pain. MPS scar tissue release therapy is an excellent option not only for scar removal but also for relaxing and healing the whole body after major surgeries.
