Post Op Lymphatic Massage FAQs

We can put you in the Ballancer Pro once your drains are out and your wounds have healed.

Your surgeon would have given you a recovery protocol for post op lymphatic massage and you need to refer to their instructions.  

We typically have seen our post-op clients for 5 to 15 sessions of full-body lymphatic drainage massage.

If you did not get instructions, the standard lymphatic drainage protocol in the Ballaner Pro is 10-12 sessions in 3 to 4 weeks.

No problem!  You can lay on your stomach for the massage.

For post op lymphatic massage you will need to remove any compression garments during the treatment.

The lower part (pants) flush and drain to your thoracic duct.  The upper part (jacket) flushes and drains to your lymphatic duct.  The body moves this through your waste system and you will urinate it out after (not during) the massage.
