Manual lymphatic drainage massage

Manual lymphatic drainage massage is a special technique with recognized medical benefits. Its main purpose is to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. As a result, it re-routes the flow of stagnated lymphatic fluid around blocked areas and leads to an improved toxin drainage process.
Furthermore, because this technique is usually combined with other movements in kinesiotherapy, it can lead to significant medical benefits for the patient.

It has been established in the specialized literature that at the end of a manual lymphatic drainage massage the volume of the affected limbs could decrease between 25 to 65%. Still, its long time effects will depend on blood circulation, regular exercise, food quality, and psychological wellbeing because all these influence the way lymphedema is kept under control.
In the end, is has be noted that this kind of treatment should take into consideration functionality, aesthetics and emotional sequelae of the patients.

Facial massage

Facial massage is a treatment that helps maintain the health and the beauty of the skin and could delay the aging process.
Among various medical benefits for the complexion, it also helps relieve stress, headaches, migraines and nasal congestion.
Facial massage can be performed on its own or as part of a full-body massage. Nonetheless, it is a particularly pampering experience as it involves many nerves and key acupressure points. Whether you are in search of ways to relax or just to escape from your daily routine, a facial massage is recommended for its benefits to your entire body.

The benefits of a facial massage:

  • Gets you in a better mood-facial massage decreases anxiety and can improve a negative mood. It may be just what you need to reduce stress.
  • Prevents wrinkles- Daily stress often results in tension buildup in the muscles. Foreheads furrow and lines form between the brows and along the lip line. Gentle, routine facial massage can help relax these tight and drawn muscles, decreasing the lines that they form. Massage combined with a hydrating moisturizer can also help minimize lines and dryness.
  • Cures congestion due to allergy symptoms- even though a facial massage is used as treatment for sinus infections, it can be used as a way to ease the symptoms. A buildup of mucus in the sinus areas can result in pressure, puffiness and headaches. Steam inhalation and gentle massage helps to mobilize secretions, improve drainage and relieve congestion.

Kinesiotherapy

The term is rooted in two Greek words: kinetos, meaning movement and therapia, which means treatment, thus representing, in the primary sense of the word, a type of treatment through movement.
Physical therapy is part of the while medical, psychological, professional and social recovery process of a person. We use kinesiotherapy in recovery of those with non-surgical conditions, and in cases of pre- or postoperative situations, depending on the doctor’s recommendation.

Using kinesiotherapy in various circumstances:

  • When a medical condition decreases the overall movement ability. Through physical therapy, we focus on restoring it.
  • When certain medical conditions decrease or increase the main body functions. Through kinesiotherapy, we focus on improving those functions and restore the body’s exercise ability.
  • Various body parts can be affected by different conditions. By using kinesiotherapy we aim to counteract the changes occurred.
  • When because of a medical condition, a certain part of the body tries to readapt on its own and as a result develops impairments.

Throughout the recovery process we need patient’s open collaboration and a high psychical readiness to exercise. The physical therapy practiced in our medical center will also contribute to the latter.
