Scars -Hidden Roadblocks to Full Recovery?

We all have accumulated scars either from our childhood or from surgeries or burns.

Once healed over, scar tissue is often ignored but sometimes we are left with the subtle sensations of pain or numbness in the area of the scar, a calloused fibrotic tissue may have formed and often these can be related to a chronic discomfort or even imbalances in structure and circulation.

Surprisingly we may not be aware of the cumulative tension that this may be causing to our body’s harmony and flow. Lymph fluid cannot move through scars and hardened (fibrotic/keloid) areas, whether the cause was surgery, radiation, or lymphedema.

For example, a patient of mine was struggling with chronic hip and abdominal pain. After just one session where we focused on her C-section scar (from 20 years ago), she felt relief and subsequently her chiropractic adjustments began to hold better.

Keeping Clear with A Squishy Belly Massage

Relieving Constipation Symptoms with Abdominal Acupressure & Lymphatic Massage

 

What is it?

I massage on your squishy belly with gentle and rhythmic strokes in a clockwise motion to mimic how our intestines move food around our colon. This process, technically known as peristalsis, is comfortable and easy to receive.

You can do this at home as it is easy to learn. When you engage in this home care, you continue to reinforce the positive results by consistently reawakening the natural process of elimination. AHHHH…

How does it work?

Regular support for your digestive system through professional and self-care helps to re-educate the colon to be more effective, relaxed, and resilient.

Research

According to an article in the Journal of Advanced Nursing (August 2010), abdominal massage appears to diminish the severity of gas and bloating and may be a cost-effective, long-term tool for managing constipation.

In my practice of acupressure and lymphatic massage, patients report back to me about the positive results of both the professional massage I give and the home techniques I teach.

Lyme Disease, Neurotoxins and our Skin

Using Infrared Sauna and Lymphatic Massage to support wellness in chronic Lyme disease recovery and other inflammatory conditions

So many of my chronic pain patients are empowered when they can do something beneficial for their condition after following advice from their doctors. My passion is to help my patients manage this chronic condition by experiencing greater vitality and wellbeing. Medically focused massage session is effective at providing therapeutic relief that can make a significant impact on a person living with many chronic health conditions like Lyme.

What happens with Lyme disease?

When Lyme disease infects our body it releases fat-soluble toxins known as neurotoxins. Initially, the neurotoxins create symptoms including fever, fatigue, or even depression. The recommended treatment is antibiotics. However, sometimes symptoms remain for months to years after the recommended treatment. When left untreated, the remaining neurotoxins may affect the joints, heart, and central nervous system, resulting in a condition known as chronic Lyme disease.
