Welcome to The Mission
We offer lymphatic massage and decongestive therapy services for patients with chronic lymphedema and post-operative care for swelling following cosmetic surgery or surgery in general. Our staff is highly trained and experienced in both. From the hands on massage to assisting you with your compression garments, we are here to help! Included in your first visit with us, and at no charge to you, you will receive a counseling and training session to help you with self care between your sessions for optimal results.
Our lymphatic massage is gentle and painless as we use Dr. Vodder style manual lymphatic drainage. Dr. Emil Vodder developed manual lymphatic drainage and introduced the technique in 1936 in Paris, France. When practiced in it's unaltered form today, it is the gold standard for decongestive therapy.
We also offer Medicupping services to treat chronic or acute muscle pain. Vacuum Cupping Therapy (myofascial decompression) is also very effective at loosening and breaking up old scar tissue to increase range of motion and improve quality of life. Vacuum Cupping is also used successfully to minimize scarring from cosmetic surgery and is very effective for body contouring. Our therapists are exceptionally skilled and bring decades of experience to the table.
The extras that make the difference...
Because we care about our environment we use organic oils, creams and natural fiber linens to help facilitate your treatment. In order to make everyone as comfortable as possible during their time with us, we ask that you refrain from using perfumes, scented lotions or tobacco products immediately prior to your appointment.
During each visit, you will also be treated to pure, refreshing reverse osmosis water infused with organic fruit and herbs, as we are in the business of moving fluid! To keep our carbon footprint as low as possible we use recycled glass gallon containers which are refilled at Whole Foods for the best quality of water.
Helping our community
We realize healthcare can be a great expense and that most insurance companies do not cover much needed alternative therapies such as massage and bodywork. It is our goal to make sure that everyone is able to get the care they need! Our clinic makes special arrangements with our clients who self pay for decongestive therapy. If you present a prescription from your doctor for clinical massage to manage a chronic medical condition, we will work with you on the financial end.
