Pre & Post Surgery/Trauma Therapy

Pre Surgery
A pre-surgery massage helps your body be in its optimal state before surgery by supporting the soft tissues. It is likely to reduce the impact of swelling, bruising, and overall discomfort after surgery. It also has the potential to expedite recovery time. We recommend having 1 or 2 massages 2 to 4 days before the surgery for best results.

Post Surgery
Post-surgery massages are suitable for all minimally invasive and open surgeries to expedite soft tissue healing and to accelerate rehabilitation. Light, gentle massage techniques reduce pain, swelling, bruising, and fluid retention.

A critical aspect of post-surgery massage therapy is that it mitigates “chronic post-surgical pain”,  that persists for longer than three months. Massage therapy can regulate the body’s response to pain and inflammation and increase the likelihood of successful rehabilitation.

When applying post-surgery massage, areas of unhealed suture sites, as well as any implants or fixation, is avoided. We focus on addressing stress and the body’s anxieties that are associated with fear of pain provocation, avoidance behaviour, muscle guarding, and tissue tension. Subsequently, it promotes active recovery.

We recommend having 3 – 5 treatment sessions for post-surgery recovery, or more depending on your condition.

Please inform your therapist of asthma, cardiac and renal conditions before booking a massage.

Scar Tissue Release
It is suitable six weeks post-surgery when the suture site is well- healed. Scar tissue repair wounds by laying down excessive collagen in a random manner. Scar release therapy plays a significant role in reducing pain, stiffness, thickness, itchiness, numbness, impaired circulation, and ineffective movements as a result of adhesion. Recommended four or more treatment sessions depending on the extent of scarring and adhesions.
