Warm Greetings to all
SCY students and
I hope that this greeting finds all in good health and
spirit. It has been an exciting year 2010 for me both
personally and professionally. I hope that all of you are
experiencing joy and growth in all aspects of life. And if
last year has been a tough one for you, please have faith
and perseverance so that the New Year 2011 WILL bring all of
whatever you set your goals to.
I have completely level two training in Lymphatic Drainage
Therapy (LDT) hosted through Chikly Health Institute. What
an amazing and transformational experience that was for me!I
have learned so much more about LDT and gained new direction
in my pursuit of helping people who are suffering from
injury and surgical scars.
expound a bit further, Lymphatic Therapy is an incredibly
gentle body therapy that can potentially result significant
benefits in relatively short time, sometimes in just one
session, in terms of increase in range of motion, decrease
in pain, and increase in circulation, thus further increase
the healing time. This work is especially important for
people with post surgical scars or many difficult chronic
conditions, such as frozen shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome,
and lower back/hip pain to name a few.
overly eager and unrealistic to offer a complementary
treatment to anyone who were interested the first time
around. Please know that my heart was in the right place,
but I did not have the time to honor all the requests as of
date. I will be in touch with those who have responded
after my last email and honor my offering. However, due to
limited time that I have, especially raising a toddler, you
may not hear from me in the immediate future, but please be
assured that I will definitely contact you.
completing the second level of LDT, I am confident that this
work will be significant part of what I offer to my students
and massage clients going onward. I feel obligated to share
what I know with you because LDT is such a gentle yet
powerful modality of body work. I will be offering
complimentary sessions to more special population. I will
offer the first session free to anyone who had surgery
(recent or old) and/or having chronic and painful joint
issues, such as frozen shoulder,
knee/ankle/hip/elbow/wrist/neck/back issues. I can also see
people with level 0 to 1 Lymphedema condition. If you have
level 2 or higher, I would need to refer you to someone else
until further training. I am grateful to my LDT2
instructor, Vehice Kutay. She has taught me much in a very
short time and helped me gain the confidence that I know how
to do this work and do it well.
forward helping many with scars tissue and pain issues.
Please contact me and ask me more about LDT. Thank you.

P.S.S. On a
much lighter note, but no less serious matter of Cellulite
issues for the Ladies (NOT to be confused with Cellulitis!),
LDT can VISIBLY reduce it! Alas, yes, only Ladies. One of
the ingredients that make up Cellulite is Estrogen. So
unfair! LDT also helps to reduce the appearance of
Ladies Only : Did you know that Bras are bad for us,
especially if you have Cancer history in your family?
Axilla region (armpit) and Breasts are major hubs of Lymph
nodes and lymph vessels. Compressing these areas with tight
elastics and straps, and even worse, with UNDERWIREs are
obviously going to restrict Lymph flow! If you can get away
without wearing one, please do. If you must wear the Bras,
then consider the healthier one, such as the ones by “Le
Mystere” brand, Non-Underwire type. You can find this brand
on Amazon.com, Macy’s, Norstroms…etc. NO WOMEN should wear
UNDERWIRE bra, especially if you had Breast Cancer in your
past or family history. To put it bluntly, it’s you Looks
or your Life. Gentlemen…please no UNDERWIRE bras for your
sweethearts. Thank you!
promise, this is the last LDT related P.S’s. For folks who
stand or sit extensively throughout the day, please consider
wearing compression stockings to help reduce fatigue and
increase recovery time. Teachers, Postal Workers, Drivers,
Chefs, Office Workers, Factory/Manufacturing Workers, and
Runners/Athelets to name some. ACE bandages should not be
used in place of Compression Stockings. If you have chronic
but stable (non-acute) edemic condition, please consult your
doctor for prescription and qualified personnel at local
Medical Supply stores should be able to find your dream fit
