What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Post plastic surgery massage!
I learned Lymphatic Drainage Massage and post plastic surgery treatment in Brazil and I am introducing it to my clients in San Diego because it is extremely helpful during the recovery process after the surgery. Today, I am one of the few massage therapists who offers Lymphatic Drainage Massage for post plastic surgery in California.
This style of massage is used to provide relief from edema, an accumulation of fluids in the tissues caused after a surgery. It will consist in a series of gentle, rhythmic massage strokes that increases the transport of the lymph flow through the tissues, it will stimulate the immune system, improve the appearance of the skin, reduce pain and edema/swelling, speed up recovery, increase of the blood flow and can also help to decrease scar tissue, bruising and minimize formation of fibrosis (those hard bumps that are formed after a liposuction).
Every stroke is very light and does not cause pain in the first few sessions. The pressure is very different from a Swedish or deep tissue massage. During LDM, muscles will relax, heart rate decrease, and client moves into a state of relaxation that promotes healing and balance.
I am comfortable and well trained to offer this treatment after any cosmetic procedure.
If you want to experience a speedy and smoother recovery from your cosmetic surgery, I recommend starting this treatment on your first week after the surgery.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have been working in the rehabilitation field since 2002, when I started my bachelor’s degree in Physical Therapy. I then discovered the healing powers of manual therapy: It heals your body and your mind!
What do you love most about your job?
I love my job because it’s effective and a totally natural treatment.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
My main focus is to give the best therapy to every single client that comes to my studio. The best feedback is when I hear a happy and relaxed client saying that that was the best massage they ever received.
