Using Manual Lymph Drainage on someone with a healthy lymphatic system is one thing. But, working with someone who has had plastic surgery is a WHOLE different ball game! 

 

You feel confident working with someone who has a HEALTHY lymphatic system. You can EASILY do a full body Manual Lymph Drainage routine, with your eyes closed! 

 

BUT, when it comes to treating someone who has just been through the trauma of a surgical procedure, you panic, knowing you don't have enough knowledge or skills to successfully treat this patient.

 

You worry that you will COMPROMISE their healing process. NOT benefit it!

Hi! I'm Petra

 

I know how you feel! I've been exactly where you are now. There's nothing worse than when doubt creeps in and you worry about your lack of knowledge and additional treatment skills. 

When I started treating postoperative plastic surgery patients, I was in the same position as you! Yes, I was confident in treating lymphoedema and performing a 'normal' Manual Lymph Drainage treatment. But I was scared and worried when I had someone on my treatment bed who had just gone through a plastic surgery procedure.  

After twenty years working in healthcare, and working alongside some of London's leading specialists in their field, I gained valuable insight and most importantly experience, working with a vast array of patients.

Now, let me guide you through YOUR journey to Postop SUCCESS and bypass the 20 years I spent getting to where I am now. 

Come and join me in the sunny south of Spain from the 3rd to the 13th of May 2025, where I will share with you the specialist skills I've built up over 20 years working with hundreds of post-op patients.
