I saw Lucille for lymphatic drainage after abdominal liposuction. I had swelling and lots of pain and couldn’t bend at the waist. I feel so much better after the treatment. Lucille is a great therapist and she taught me what I can do for myself at home. I am so happy that I didn’t have to take medication for the pain. Thank you so much! I don’t know what I would have done without you!
