One of my clients asked me, when my husband had heart surgery, how I was going to prepare him holistically for surgery. I told them, I planned to balance and support his energy and give him lymphatic massages. Recently, I have been preparing some of my clients for mastectomy surgeries. I have found that using my energy balancing protocols, I have been able to decrease their emotional stress related to losing their breasts. As part of the energy balancing, I am increasing their energy levels to withstand the toll of the surgery and the recovery period. As a Registered Nurse, I also had previously worked for a plastic surgeon who specialized in breast reconstruction. I was also able to share some of the healing experiences from former patients. I gave the women pre- operative manual lymphatic massages to open the drainage ports of their lymphatics. This helps in decreasing the swelling post operatively, and helps with detoxing the anesthesia medications from the body.I will see these women post operatively to continue decreasing the swelling and increasing the lymphatic flow to heal the wound. Lymphatic massage (used in wound care in hospitals) moves the food to the cells and brings antibodies to wound to fight any infection. After the surgery, I will do another energy balance to have the body integrate the new breast implants to be a part of their body’s energy field, and not seen as a foreign body. I love that “Energy Kinesiology” gives me the skills to assist and support these women in making their surgical experience a less stressful event.
