How to Prepare for Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Preparation is key to obtaining successful results. When you prepare for a lymphatic drainage massage beforehand, you will be able to know what to expect afterward, how much it would cost, the pain associated with it, and the relief it does to the body. It is always advisable to make a checklist that will assist you to keep track of every detail. Here are tips to guide you.

Ascertain that your therapist is trained

For the best lymphatic drainage massage results, the best therapist would be required. During your consultation, ask your therapist about his/her experience. You could as well request to see some before and after photos of the patients he/she has treated.

Be prepared both mentally, physically, and psychologically

Lymphatic drainage massage techniques require a person to be calm, stress-free, and relaxed. He/she should let go of all thoughts, and just be in the moment with the therapist. This helps obtain amazing results.

Avoid consumption of heavy meals beforehand

Lymphatic drainage massage can be very intense depending on your treatment. When you eat heavy meals before then, you may experience a lot of discomfort. This will interfere with the smooth progress of the therapy.

Do not apply any form of body lotion

Another requirement for a smooth lymphatic drainage massage procedure is not to apply any body oils or lotions. These procedures are done with a person’s skin raw, for effective skin stretching.

Relieve your bladder before treatment commences

Lymphatic drainage massage treatments encourage the effective, smooth flow of body fluids. During treatment, more fluid will find its way to the bladder. It is safe to empty it first to avoid creating pressure inside it because chances are that you would need to relieve yourself afterward.

Follow your therapist’s instruction

After surgery, the therapist will provide some instructions to follow. These will help make the treatment successful. Examples of these instructions include ensuring that you drink extra fluids to keep the body flushed as frequently as possible, and engaging in some light exercises such as walking, and jogging to keep the muscles active, and your lymphatic system working.
