An Exceptional Massage Experience

To enhance the experience at Via Medical Massage, I have gone beyond the traditional training of massage therapists to provide solutions rooted in science. Although I have specific medical training in lymphatic, oncology, and rehabilitative therapies, I still integrate the traditional massage setting to provide a tranquil environment where you can find peace and healing. This unique approach, combined with working closely with your current health care team, means better outcomes for your specific needs.

Lymphatic Drainage

Reduce and manage swelling due to trauma, injury, or lymphatic disorders
This technique is performed using gentle and specific strokes toward the direction of your body's lymph nodes. It is ideal for reducing sinus congestion and reducing facial or abdominal bloating. Lymph drainage also promotes a healthy immune system by filtering excess waste in the body. If you have had recent plastic surgery, this technique is ideal for rapid recovery.

Post-Operative Massage

Post-surgical scar tissue release, fibrosis massage, and pain management
Special training has been acquired to work with clients post-operatively, including modifications to client positioning and working around medical devices. Post-operative complications such as pain, fibrosis, and scarring will be addressed. An intake will be performed before your session to address appropriate modifications.

Therapeutic Massage

Manage a variety of pain syndromes, reduce stress, and improve movement
A massage with firm to deep pressure customized to treat problem areas. Areas of concern will be addressed with techniques such as trigger point release, guasha, cupping, and myofascial release. This massage is ideal for those suffering from headaches, back pain, or mild soft tissue injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can I see you after my surgery? Is it okay if I still have drains/sutures/staples?

I can see you as soon as your doctor advises, and with their permission, I can work with someone who still has drains/staples/sutures. Most doctors however will begin sending patients to me around week 2 after all have been removed.

How many sessions of manual lymph drainage/post-op massage do I need after my procedure?

I typically see patients 2-3 times in the first 2-4 weeks after their procedure, followed by 1-2 times per week as needed going forward.

My post-op instructions require me to avoid certain positions ( ie-sitting/laying) for a period of time. Are you still able to massage me?

Yes! I have a medical-grade adjustable table that can be positioned in a variety of ways. I use several variations of bolstering systems to make you comfortable. I am familiar with the most common surgical positioning restrictions and have been able to accommodate them accordingly.

I have a fever, infection, or seroma after my surgery. Can I still get a massage?

If you have a fever or suspect an infection, please call your surgeon right away. I deal with seromas on a case-by-case basis. A large seroma will need to be drained by your surgeon. If you have a small seroma I will generally work around it and monitor it, and refer you back to your doctor if deemed necessary.

Help! I think I have fibrosis. What can you do to help me?

Fibrosis is common after many surgical procedures, and is especially prevalent after liposuction. You may feel fibrosis where the liposuction cannula was placed, and this has more to do with the type of liposuction you had done than anything else. Fibrosis requires patience and time, and you may always feel some hardening under your skin. I perform special techniques using my hands and tools to soften the fibrosis, and many clients report feeling a difference after just a couple of sessions.

Do you offer massage “packages” after surgery?

I do not, however, please know that your payment reflects a full spectrum of care beyond the time on the table. I will work closely with you to ensure you have all resources needed for your post-op care including garment assistance, communication with your health care team, acquisition of medical devices, referrals to other providers, etc.

Do you sell compression garments?

I do not sell compression at this time, however, I can assist you in selecting the best compression for your situation. I also have partnered with physical therapists who are certified to fit custom compression should you have the need. I do sell other products related to post-op care; please see my online store.

I got my surgery out of the state/country. Can you help me remove drains or other medical devices?

It is out of my scope of practice to remove medical devices. Please be sure to coordinate with your surgeon how you will navigate these situations.

I have a medical device (pacemaker, port, feeding tube, ostomy bag, etc). Can I still get a massage?

Yes! I work with medical devices on a regular basis and can make you very comfortable. I typically use a pillow system or adjust my table to accommodate the device.

Can I use my HSA/FSA for massage?

Yes! Please see your doctor for a prescription for massage therapy first. I will provide all necessary treatment documents and receipts to submit to your HSA/FSA.

Will my private insurance cover my massage?

Unfortunately, this is very rare. I have had success having massages covered by auto insurance after a car accident, but private medical insurance is very fickle. I recommend setting up an HSA or FSA if your company gives you the option.
