I had a complete abdominal plasty with liposuction on my ribs and abdominal area with D.r Gabriel. Cohesive Therapy was dramatic in my healing process using lymphatic massage to control my swelling. This allowed me to get up and move around sooner with less pain and I just over all felt better. I was able to get in to see Yulisa within one week of my surgery, which I believe is a must. I’m a true believer in the work Yulisa is using at Cohesive Therapy with plastic surgery patients. I believe it helps ensure a positive outcome with whatever surgery you may choose to do with making you feel better about your body image. Dr. Gabriel and Cohesive Therapy are my team!! ~LaDonna Cary
I cannot possibly say enough to thank everyone here!!! I came in for pre-op work with severe scar tissue from c-sections and major weight loss. I wish I had started sooner because my results were simply magical.
I do a combination of deep tissue massage, dry brushing, cupping, red light therapy, scraping, and wraps (probably more).
I first reached out to talk about MLD (manual lymphatic drainage massages) for my post op care and quickly decided to go in pre-op. It made a HUGE impact on my body, my well-being, and on my recovery post op. You can SEE the results!!
I love the environment and the treatment physically and personally. I have been nearly dragging my loved ones there because of the amazing positive impact they’ve had in my life. I can’t wait to get back in there after the quarantine.
I even received a call during quarantine just for Gepina to check in on me after my major surgery. That care is unprecedented. See you soon! I am eagerly awaiting (dibs on first appointment!!!) ~Brittany G.
I absolutely love the work that they do here! I got a BBL in June and when I got back, I frantically looked for places that provided lymphatic drainage massage to assist in my recovery with my surgery. I couldn’t be happier with my experience here. The environment and quality of the space in people and service is untouchable. I can’t wait for them to expand and be able to provide other people the same service that I have gotten. ~ Kaylor Auger
We service clients’ post-op for BBL, LYPO 360, Mommy makeovers, tummy Tucks, INNER thigh lifts, Facelifts, and much more.
This is a sample Session, as with all our sessions they are customized to our client’s needs.
Plastic Surgery / Weight Loss Detoxification contouring sessions
Included are all the modalities offered in the Cohesive Massage Experience Treatment but with an emphasis on detoxification and/or weight loss. Cohesive Lymphatic Drainage is the only technique that has been specifically designed by Gepina Caterina to directly work with plastic surgery clients. Therapists are experienced and extensively trained directly by Gepina.
The Signature Series or individual Treatment
The series works best over 6 to 12 sessions depending on your surgery or weight loss detox goals. Sessions are scheduled one to two times per week a week apart, each session builds on each other, covering the whole body thoroughly the series.
The IRF therapy we offer is top of the line with low EMF infused with crystal therapy
The goal of the IRF wrap is to stimulate the lymph to “break a sweat”. The neck drainage will induce a stronger “sweat break” to opening the most important pathways to the lymph by the heart. The goal of each session is to assist the lymph to work by itself, after surgery and encourage the release of water retention.
The stomach area is considered a CORSET REGION whereby we clear the fine line below the rib cage and above the pubic, and around the arches of the front and back of the hips for that “HOUR GLASS” look.

BENEFITS OF COHESIVE LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE EXPLAINED
Our treatments will accentuate your results and reduce long term side effects and complications such as scar tissue fibrosis and edema. They will increase vital circulation and blood flow to the lymphatic system so that you can return to normal as fast and effectively as possible after surgery.
To better understand these benefits, here is a brief explanation of the anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system and other systems that interconnect. The nervous system aligns with the root of the muscles, tissues, and fascia while the lymphatic system piggybacks along every channel of the fascia, muscles, and circulatory system. Our MDL techniques increase blood flow to relieve symptoms of poor sensation and increase healing of damaged nerve fibers further improving sensation. So, in treating the lymphatic system, we are also treating the nerves, muscles, fascia, and circulatory system to ignite the self-healing capacity of the body during the very fragile period before and after surgery.
We bring to the surgery table all our life’s congestions and tensions. If we can clear these pathways prior to surgery, we have already supported our body in a more nurturing and healing way. It is like having a clean canvas to work on.
There are limitations as to what we can do post-surgery with massage. For example, it would be too late to perform the more aggressive bodywork needed to resolve previous scar tissue that may add to the problem of edema. Furthermore, muscles heal more effectively when care is taken to regrow and calm the lines of lymph nodes and nerves. Therefore, a pre-surgery massage care plan, at least one month prior, will allow the therapist to treat these areas without limitations and prepare the body or face for undergoing “The Overnight Makeover!” (e.g., Mommy Makeover, facelift, eyelid surgery, BBL, or other surgery). This can be a psychological and physiological change you may think you are prepared for until you are in throes of bloating, bruising, pain, drains, and the frantic search to get the right massage help.
Post-surgery, your drainage therapist will in many ways be the most important post-op care you can give yourself. Cosmetic surgery massages are a part of the total expense of your makeover, not an option! So, PLAN it!
Please contact us for a consultation and a copy of our Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Recovery Guide. We will review your personalized treatment plan and what you can expect with your recovery, based on the type of surgical procedure you receive.
Clients come to us with post-surgery needs before or after a reconstructive surgeries, C-Section recovery or simply to detoxify and reset your system. Many clients have said the treatments are so effective in contouring and weight loss that they are finally energized to start a new habit of self-care into their lives that create sustaining change. All new clients will receive a full assessment to super fine tune your treatment goals for the series. Please review the self-care page for more information, these techniques are encouraged to apply into our lifestyle for the best benefits.
