Specializing in lymphatic drainage massage therapy
WHAT I DO
I offer lymphatic drainage massage to anyone who desires to experience the many health and wellness benefits that go along with stimulating your lymphatic system, as well as treating health conditions/concerns like lymphedema, lipedema, chronic venous insufficiency and edema from cosmetic, orthopedic and cancer related surgeries. This drainage massage is much different than your normal massage. I use a circular skin stretching technique that opens the superficial lymphatics, which are skin deep, and I apply slightly deeper touch focused over lymph nodes to stimulate the lymphatic system. The 3 main roles of the lymphatic system are fluid regulation/balance, waste transportation and immunity. A lymphatic drainage massage is such a powerful tool for eliminating swelling; detoxing and ridding our bodies of the crud, crap and debris that we ingest, that we accumulate through cellular process (Yes, our cells poop too!) and that get into our systems through our environment. Not to mention our lymphatic system is a huge part of our immune system, and who wouldn't want a stellar immune system to protect us from pathogens, viruses, bacteria and cancer cells!
Check it out!! Not only does it provide great health benefits, but it FEELS GOOD too! You may just find you LOVE it more than a typical massage!
My mission: To provide clients an all natural approach to cellular detoxification, managing and reducing swelling/edema, boosting immunity and immense relaxation through lymphatic drainage massage.
My vision: To heal through my hands.

"I never had a lymphatic massage before yesterday and WOW is all I can say. I do not have edema or any other underlying condition that I would necessarily need this. However I do want to be the healthiest me possible so I thought "I'm going to try it". To be 100% honest I was hoping it would help boost my immune system. I can say I got way more than that!!! I felt so energized, focused and less sluggish after that massage!!!! Who wouldn't be happy with those results?!?!? As for my immune system it's truly to early to tell (it's only been one day) but the reboot of my system is enough to make me a believer and now know I NEED this service. Literally most everyone can benefit from it!!
I also need to give a shout out to Abby!! She is so welcoming, knowledgeable and explains everything to make sure you are totally comfortable. Super relaxing room, decor and music. Definitely a MUST!!!!!" Chrissy Dietrich
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET THIS TYPE OF MASSAGE?
The answer varies depending on the purpose behind getting this massage. If you are looking for general health and wellness, I would recommend monthly. If you have swelling problems, increased frequency is required.
WHAT WILL I EXPECT AFTER THIS MASSAGE?
After this drainage massage expect to urinate either with more frequency or volume as this massage stimulates the lymphatic system which is responsible for fluid volume. You may feely achy as the toxins are leaving your body, but this will be temporary lasting up to a few hours. Drinking plenty of water and staying active afterwards will drastically help.
WHAT WILL MY FIRST SESSION BE LIKE?
You will start by filling out a client intake form so Abby can get to know you and meet your needs. During the session you will lay on a standard massage table face up. This technique is done best with hand contact directly on the skin so you will be asked to undress to your level of comfort with proper draping supplied. Soft relaxing music and dim lighting will create a nice atmosphere. Abby will have you begin with deep breathing while you lay quietly for 3 minutes. Then the lymphatic massage will begin starting at the neck/shoulder and abdomen (if allowed) and working her way down each arm and leg, returning to the center after each limb. She will end with lymphatic drainage of the neck/face. The massage sequencing may vary based on each clients needs and goals.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A LYMPHATIC MASSAGE AND A DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE?
A typical deep tissue massage is done with deep pressure to stimulate your muscular structures often with a kneading, rolling and gliding technique at a moderate to fast pace. A manual lymphatic drainage massage is stimulating your superficial lymphatic system and lymph nodes which are delicate and require a skin stretching, rhythmic and slow technique.
