Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT) is a method of stimulating the lymph and body fluids. It is a very gentle hands-on procedure that helps to eliminate fluid retention, cleanses the body and eliminate toxins and trapped proteins in the tissues. It stimulates the immune system, promotes relaxation, and releases stress and emotional trauma.
Oncology massage is a bodywork session, tailored to meet the unique and changing needs of someone going through, or with a history of cancer treatments. This focused therapy incorporates reflexology and acupressure techniques to strengthen both physical and emotional wellbeing. These two methods are gentle, non-invasive techniques that assist in the restoration of health. An oncology trained massage therapist respects the limits of a body that may already be stressed by the disease and its treatments. Oncology massage therapists can recognize and work within a framework of clinical considerations such as low blood cell count, risk of bone metastases or blood clots and compromised lymph nodes.
This is a non-invasive therapy that uses pressurized thumb and finger-techniques on reflex points on the hands, feet, and ears. This practice is based on the walking premise that there is an invisible map of the human body on these areas. Reflexed area’s kinetic reaction travels through nerve pathways which are linked directly to corresponding nerves and points them back into the target regions in the body for the relief of pain and energy blockage.
Shiatsu utilizes finger-pressure and stretching techniques along the meridians and points of Traditional Chinese Medicine (the same points as acupuncture).
