Why is Massage Important After Surgery?

There are a number of reasons why your medical professional might suggest a massage regimen after surgery or you might seek out a massage on your own. The body has an amazing ability to heal itself, but massage therapy is proven to accelerate this process when done by a professional and this is important in a post-surgery situation. In addition, massage can keep muscles from tensing and the body from losing flexibility if you are immobile or limited in movement after surgery. Another important benefit is to a person’s mental health. A surgical procedure can be one of the most stressful events a person goes through, and a massage can help a person relax and feel comfortable again.

What Massage Techniques Can Be Used After Surgery?

The right massage technique for your needs will depend on your surgery, your level of pain and the ultimate goal of the session. Consulting with a professional will allow you to select the best service, but I offer a full catalog of massage therapies to choose from. If your goal is relaxation then a hot stone massage or Swedish massage might be best. If your surgery allows for it, then Acupressure or Shiatsu might speed up the healing process. In any case, I am always happy to explain the different services offered and work with my clients to select the best option for their unique needs.

What Should I Expect from Aftercare Service?

I have worked with many people following surgical procedures and I pride myself on catering to their unique needs. There is no one size fits all massage therapy plan, and this is especially true after surgery. You can expect a dialogue where we determine the best solution for your needs and care throughout the entire process. I understand the need for professionalism and care when helping someone recover from a surgery, and you can expect a partner in your healing journey from start to finish.
