A Partnership to Inspire Wellness
It is a pleasure to introduce a valuable patient service to the oncology, surgical and rehab community. A patient’s healing from surgery and/or intense cancer treatments will be greatly enhanced with the addition of Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM) Therapy also referred to as Lymphatic Massage. Combining a surgeon’s post-operative care with LDM Therapy will allow patients to heal faster and feel more supported throughout their recovery. An oncology massage therapist knows to modify the massage session to adapt to conditions pertaining to acute as well as later effects of treatment and where applicable, disease progression.
Many physicians realize the benefits of medically-based massage therapy as an added tool for rehabilitation. However, physicians find it difficult to locate and refer their patients to a reputable and trustworthy massage therapy provider.
Physicians often are unfamiliar with Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM) Therapy and how it provides an ancillary resource to their patients.

Taking the Lead
Men and women who have undergone cosmetic facial surgery, body contouring and cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgeries have benefited from Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM) Therapy.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, procedures have increased over the past ten years on an average of 300% to 500%. The top procedures are breast surgeries with breast lift (560%) and breast augmentation (533%) gaining the most popularity. Simultaneously, a large number of surgeons have entered the field of plastic surgery thus reducing the ratio of patient to surgeon.
With that in mind, patient care and customer service helps compliment the surgical experience and creates a competitive advantage. Providing Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM) Therapy to a physician or surgeon’s surgical offerings or resources is one such way a surgeon may grow and maintain a market share advantage.
