Exams. Surgery. Medications. You've been through enough already.
Would you rather spend another hour at a medical office or enjoy the expertise of a CLT and the caring hands of a massage therapist in the comfort of your own home?
No white lab coats. No machines.
Just a warm smile and a well-trained, compassionate set of hands using a European technique for effectively reducing swelling, introduced in the South of France and perfected in Germany.
Our goal: reduce swelling and tightness after surgery and get you back to living your life again and spending quality time with your family.
Hello, I am Kathleen, a 42 year old meditation teacher and Board Certified massage therapist living in San Diego. I specialize in manual lymphatic drainage, a type of massage that works with the power of your lymphatic system to reduce the effects of post-surgical swelling ( plastic and orthopedic surgery ) and lymphedema.
I also hold workshops on reducing anxiety before surgery with the proven relaxation techniques detailed in Peggy Huddleston's ''Prepare for Surgery, Feel Better' book.
I am not a medical professional. I am a long distance runner living in Troy, NY that is interested in improving her athletic performance through proper training and nutrition to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro in July 2014. Any information on this site is mean to complement, not replace, the advice of a physician.
I started this unfunded blog to share advice I have found with fellow amateur runners and hikers. I am open to receiving and reviewing running, hiking and nutrition products. Please contact me at lisson at gmail dot com. Any claims I make about the performance of any item or commercial product are based upon my personal experiences with the product. If I have received the product for free (versus purchasing it with my own money), I will state it in my review.
