Melissa's Story

Emergency laparotomy: Postsurgery, my incision was left open for a few days in case doctors needed to go back in. After I was closed up with staples, my incision failed to heal properly. I had a big hole in my stomach that I had to clean and pack with gauze twice a day for several weeks while my incision healed slowly from the inside out. Because it healed this way, I was left with significantly more scar tissue and an even bigger scar than I otherwise would have had. Years later and my scar was still significant at about 8long vertically and about >2.5wide. The scar discoloration ranged from a deep purple to, at times, being very white in contrast to the normal, soft pink color of my skin around it. Not only did it look extreme, but it was also quite painful due to nerve damage and the amount of scar tissue inside. Normal movements caused feelings of my insides being tugged on and twisted, making my previous lifestyle of being extremely active, impossible

Summer 2018 I had a consultation with a plastic surgeon to see what options I had to improve or get rid of my scar. I was given 2 options both of which would be a surgery. I was not keen on more surgery, more incisions, more scar tissue, more down time, etc and the natural options Id been using were not helping

12/2019 I was introduced to Lymphatique. I was still not very familiar with the therapy, but after one treatment I was completely sold! After just one treatment, my scar shrunk about an inch in width and about 23in length. I was completely blown away as I had been convinced nothing short of surgery would fix this scar. After I began Lymphatique treatments I also noticed how much better I was looking and feeling all over.  My Crohn’s Disease had been keeping  me achy all over.  I struggled with brain fog—the Lymphatique treatments were helping!  I was sleeping great, my mind felt clear and sharp, I had energy I hadnt had in years, I felt amazing physically and emotionally complete with a mental clarity I had been missing. Continued Lymphatique  treatment has helped maintain and even continue improving the amazing results Ive experienced. My scar is currently 4.5long and barely 1wide! In addition to my scar shrinking and becoming a healthy pink color again, Lymphatique also helped eliminate scar tissue that built up insidethis has made it so it is no longer painful to be more physically active again

Lymphatique  has done much more than help with my scar.  Lymphatique has helped with my Crohn’s Disease. As Crohns Disease is an autoimmune disorder that causes my body to attack itself,  it causes a great deal of inflammation throughout my body. That inflammation causes many difficult and painful symptoms that can make every day life a struggle. Lymphatique has brought my inflammation down to a point where I not only feel different, I look and move differently.

In addition to the incredible improvement of my abdominal scar, these are some of the symptoms that have drastically improved and/or even been eliminated since I began Lymphatique therapy

  • Severe Brain Fog
  • Severe Chronic Fatigue
  • Chronic Pain
  • Back and Joint Pain
  • Headaches
  • Muscle Spasms and Pain
  • Clogged Lymph Nodes
  • Restlessness
  • Cellulite
  • Nausea
  • Poor Skin Elasticity
  • Easy Bruising
  • Slow Healing
  • Difficulty Sleeping
  • Significant Swelling
  • Water Retention
  • Low Energy
  • Trouble Focusing

The decrease in inflammation is visible and measurable.  I have lost several inches and over 10 lbs of swelling/inflammation throughout my body

My skin is brighter, smoother, more even toned and healthy looking.   Dryness and breakouts are eliminated as my lymphatic system was cleansed of toxins and inflammation.

Huge bruises I’d had for weeks were mostly healed within a day of receiving Lymphatique treatment. My overall feeling of well-being has improved significantly, which has in turn helped my anxiety and stress levels making me feel better not just physically, but mentally and emotionally as well.

I have achieved all of this without any medications or invasive treatments! The improvement and elimination of so many painful symptoms that I had previously just accepted as part of my illness and life that I didn’t think could be helped before has made me a lifelong client for Lymphatique  therapy!
