CHECK WITH YOUR MEDICAL DOCTOR BEFORE SCHEDULING A PRE OR POST SURGERY BODYWORK SESSION!
Make sure you have scheduled with a qualified bodyworker!
Many massage therapists do not understand implications of surgery on the body so make sure your therapist is qualified in this type of massage.
Once your surgery is determined necessary, bodywork and massage can be a wonderful tool to helping you feel grounded before your surgery.
By entering your operation relaxed and confident, you increase the chance of success and opportunity for healing.
Before surgery, massage can relieve much of the anxiety and tension associated with the anticipation of having surgery. Massage helps the patient feel less stressed and lowers the patient's expectations for pain. This lowering of stress promotes a general sense of well-being that enhances the patient's ability to heal quicker and with fewer complications.
