How to Identify Post-Care Clients

Anyone who has had HD Lipo (past or present), needs lymphatic drainage, or has developed fibrosis and scar tissue. If the patient has expressed that they have had past procedures and are experiencing pain under the skin, tightness, a reduced range of motion, swelling, pockets of fluid, or feelings as though the tissue is tearing when they move naturally, this can be quite uncomfortable or painful. These are usually a clear indication that they are experiencing Fibrosis.

If the client is unsure, just ask what it feels like:

  • Is it hard?
  • Is it painful when you stretch the area?
  • Is it wobbly and fluid-like?

Fibrosis is the thickening or scarring of tissue, and it happens when deeper tissue has had incisions or has been traumatized and damaged.

Bodywork: What Is It?

Bodywork is performed by a Licensed Practitioner (In my case, a Licensed Massage Therapist, which is even better) who studies the function and structure of the body. Bodywork is therapeutic personal development and includes:

  • Improving and promoting mental awareness
  • Body and mind connection
  • Energy medicine
  • Breathwork
  • Soft tissue manipulation
  • Reiki

This includes massage techniques to benefit the client. We just can’t sell or promote massage itself. I like to tell my clients that they will experience mind-body-spirit connection, self-awareness, mental exhaustion relief, and emotional comfort.

Bodywork helps with:

  • Tension
  • Anxiety
  • Nervousness
  • Emotional awareness
  • Stress
  • A safe place to process
  • Energy work
  • Soft tissue manipulation (refer to post-care)

ANYONE generally healthy can receive Body Work!

If a patient suffers from major ailments (neuromuscular diseases, oncology, cardiovascular disease, or other contagious skin diseases) they must be referred outside our office.

A type of energy healing, reiki addresses both emotional and physical pain that causes blocks and congestion in energy throughout the body, causing illness and mental distractions. Reiki aims to clear and promote emotional processes in the body on an energetic level. The patient may experience emotional sensations, heat, or tingling throughout the session.


This ayurvedic medicine technique involves a slow and steady dripping of medicated oil to the forehead and throat. This is intended for a psycho-somatic balance, and relief from mental exhaustion.

Please inform the client that this does go into the scalp. This is intended for them to release all anxiety of control and worry. They will be given a hair towel and warm towel to reduce oil residue when leaving the session but please prepare them that a shower is recommended after.

Body Wraps

Specially blended herbs are steeped in hot water and a body linen will be soaked in this solution and used to wrap the body. This will be aromatic, warm, and damp. The patient will experience soothing and detoxing effects which are intended to aid in pain and detoxification through the pores.
