Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy helps the body to relax physically, emotionally, and mentally.  Therapeutic massage uses a variety of techniques including light or firm pressure to deeper methods which can be beneficial to relieve chronic pain in the muscles and joints.  Swedish massage is a technique using lighter strokes which improves blood circulation, removes waste from muscles, and relaxes the entire body.  Sanford Health massage therapists will work with you to determine what technique will be most beneficial in order to customize your massage to meet your needs.


Lymphedema

Lymphedema

Lymphedema is chronic swelling in the arm, leg, neck, chest or back due to accumulation of protein rich fluid. Left untreated, lymphedema can lead to limited mobility and increased risk of infection. Our certified lymphedema therapists utilize manual lymphatic drainage, compression bandaging and therapeutic exercise to reduce your swelling and educate you on how to successfully manage your condition at home.
