Lymphatic Cupping and Massage after a cesarean section


Lymphatic Cupping and 

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage 

after a Cesarean Section



by Kathleen Lisson, CLT

Nicole F. had a beautiful son six months ago via c-section at 41 weeks. She had previously had several abdominal surgeries for fibroids and to remove her appendix. During her pregnancy I helped her with her swollen feet, and though her c-section scar healed well, she was still feeling bloated. 

The day after her first session of manual lymphatic drainage and lymphatic cupping, she told me:

“My stomach feels so different. It’s less constricted but feels tightened up and less “flabby”. There is less of a pooch over my c-section scar.”

Lymphatic massage to reduce swelling after facelift in Del Mar

Lymphatic Drainage Massage Relieves Swelling after Facelift in Del Mar




by Kathleen Lisson, CMT, CLT (CAMTC #70128) 

It is a pleasure helping Michelle. She found my website after experiencing a lot of swelling after her facelift. Here is her testimonial:

Kathleen Lisson’s lymphatic massage has been incredibly helpful to me after my cosmetic surgery. My doctor told me I was on the extreme scale of swelling, and I did all the ice-heat-ice regimens, which brought some relief, but Kathleen’s treatment increased my drainage and relieved the discomfort for several days at a time. For the first month, I was having her come to me house twice a week, then I eased into once a week. I also appreciated how friendly she was to my dog. I would highly recommend her services.

Lymphatic Massage Testimonial Tuesday - Facelift in San Diego

Lymphatic Massage San Diego Testimonial Tuesday




I love getting testimonials from my clients, and Judy wanted to share so much with you she filled in the entire first side and had to turn the page over to the back!


“A week after my facelift, I got a hematoma and had significant swelling and stiffness -
very uncomfortable - while the surgeon said it would resolve - the day to day unpleasant /
uncomfortableness caused me to seek relief.


After the first massage - I had better range of motion and physically and mentally felt like I’d
reached a turning point. The following week I saw good improvements, where previously it
seemed like my body was just going to stay swollen and puffy for a long time.

I finally started to feel like myself again.

The massage was relaxing, for sure, but unlike sports massage that I’d had. I was skeptical about the drainage when I left, but that night my body definitely was processing fluid as I was up every few hours to pee. So, skepticism unfounded - and relief realized.”

Judy from San Diego, after a facelift in San Diego in 2018
