While any form of surgery causes some level of trauma, there are ways to help your body recover better, faster, and more comfortably. One of the most effective treatments to add to your aftercare is a post-surgical massage. Not only does this help to speed and enhance the healing process; it can also improve your results and make you feel more comfortable during your recovery.

What is a post-surgical massage?

A post-surgical massage is a specialized, gentle form of massage that helps stimulate the lymphatic system and improve blood flow after an operation. The lymphatic system is a fundamental part of your body that helps process waste and absorbs fluids. These are both critical aspects of your recovery. 

As your body repairs the muscular and cellular damage involved in the surgery, there is significant waste and fluid production that your body must deal with, which can overload your lymphatic system. A post-surgical massage helps break up these build-ups to speed the process, reduce inflammation, and promote healthy increased blood flow to the affected areas.

The benefits of a post-surgical massage

Post-surgical massage is an excellent addition to any post-surgical recovery and offers many benefits, including:

  • Improved circulation: Massage stimulates blood flow, which means vital restoring nutrients are delivered faster. Waste is thereby shed by your system more efficiently.
  • Reduce scarring: As the muscles relax, they become more flexible and heal better, which means less scar tissue and improved flexibility.
  • Faster healing: Massage both reduces stress and improves the flow of oxygen and other nutrients to the area, which helps to speed healing and recovery.
  • Improved comfort: A post-surgical massage can also help any discomfort associated with your surgery. 
  • Enhanced results: Improving the blood flow, reducing stress, and supporting the lymphatic system all together means that your results will look better, feel better, and function better.
