Lymphatic drainage

Manual lymphatic drainage therapy has many benefits and many ways to serve your health and wellness. It also has many nuances from practitioner to practitioner. At this time time I AM ACCEPTING LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE CLIENTS FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS/CONCERNS:

You have had a cancer experience and are at risk of lymphedema or experiencing symptoms and need manual lymphatic drainage therapy to manage them.

You have had a cosmetic surgery RELATED TO A CANCER EXPERIENCE such as fat grafting following reconstruction and need support with your healing.

You have been diagnosed with lymphedema or lipedema not related to a cancer diagnosis and need manual lymphatic drainage to manage your symptoms or support healing.

You are post-natal and are seeking lymphatic drainage to assist with your recovery.

You are seeking lymphatic drainage to manage symptoms related to autoimmune disorders, digestive issues, or support general immunity and wellness.

COSMETIC SURGERY

AT THIS TIME I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS FOR MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE THERAPY FOLLOWING ELECTIVE COSMETIC SURGERY UNLESS IT IS RELATED TO A CANCER EXPERIENCE.

If you are seeking MLD following cosmetic surgery such as BBL, tummy tuck, lipo 360, etc., I recommend reaching out to Linda Hillyard at Lymphatic Wellness and Massage in Williamsville or Great Lakes Therapeutic Massage in West Seneca. Both practices are trained and experienced to meet your specific healing needs.

I'm a southern girl with a northern heart who found love, life, and professional fulfillment in Buffalo, NY. I am a proud massage and lymphatic therapist, educator, obsessive learner, cancer survivor, and part-time world wanderer. I love what I do and the people I work with. I believe that we can all benefit from human touch and connection and hope to teach the world that massage therapy is available to all regardless of what they are experiencing at any given point in their journey through life and beyond.

a few things to note about...

My practice

AT THIS TIME I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS FOR ELECTIVE COSMETIC SURGERY RECOVERY. If you are seeking lymphatic drainage following any cosmetic procedure (unrelated to a cancer diagnosis) such as BBL, tummy tuck, lipo-360, etc, I recommend reaching out to Great Lakes Therapeutic Massage or Orthosport Physical Therapy.

IN MY PRACTICE DEEP TISSUE IS NOT THE SAME AS DEEP/HEAVY PRESSURE.  "Deep tissue", as I was trained, focuses on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the body and requires a specific focal point such as a muscle or muscle grouping. Pressure does not have to be intense nor painful in order to be effective. I do not believe in "no pain, no gain" and will never advise you to "breathe through the pain". While I'm capable of delivering very heavy pressure it is not my preferred type of work. If you are seeking sports massage or a more intense therapeutic session I may not be the best fit for you.

I CURRENTLY WORK WITH WOMEN ONLY. However, if you are gender non-conforming or outside the gender binary and seeking a safe space to receive therapeutic massage please contact me so we can discuss some options for you to receive the work you need.
