It is a pleasure to introduce a new and valuable patient service
and business opportunity to the surgical
community. Cosmetic surgery can be greatly enhanced
with the addition of Peri-operative Therapy. Combining a surgeon's
post-operative care with massage therapy will allow patients to
heal faster and feel supported throughout their recovery.
Many plastic surgeons and cosmetic dermatologists realize the
benefits of massage therapy in regards to post-operative
rehabilitation. Our research suggests surgeons would like to refer
patients to a skilled massage therapist, however, surgeons find it
difficult to locate a provider who is reputable and
Today, specialized peri-operative massage techniques are not
being taught in massage schools. Few therapists have gained the
necessary knowledge and experience it takes to treat patients
peri-operatively. Additionally, most plastic surgeons and cosmetic
dermatologists do not have the time to train a trustworthy and
qualified therapist to enhance their surgical offering.

How We Got Here
Kent Lemburg is a nationally certified massage therapist and one
of the managing members of Soulstice, Ltd. In 1995, Kent
began a collaborative relationship with a Colorado plastic surgeon
to provide massage therapy as post-operative rehabilitation for
cosmetic surgery patients.
Ann Brooks is a massage therapist, massage therapy business
educator and expert in health insurance reimbursement. During
Ann's massage therapy career, she has become specialized in
treating plastic surgery reconstruction patients.
Kent and Ann joined forces in 2005 to combine their knowledge
and skills. Currently, Soulstice has a team of 8 massage
therapists who have gone through our specialized course, The
Fudamentals of Peri-Operative Massage Therapy.
Soulstice has had the opportunity to work with hundreds of
patients locally and nationally. This experience has enabled
Soulstice to further develop a peri-operative massage healing
program to include stretching, relaxation and self-massage
Men and women who have undergone cosmetic facial surgery, body
contouring and cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgeries have
benefited from peri-operative massage. By observing most of these
surgeries, Soulstice massage therapists have been able to
comprehensively understand each procedure, whereby developing
enhanced peri-operative techniques.
Taking the Lead
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons,
procedures have increased over the past ten years on an average of
300% to 500%. The top procedures are breast surgeries with breast
lift 560%) and breast augmentation (533%) gaining the most
popularity. Simultaneously, a large number of surgeons entered the
field of plastic surgery thus reducing the ratio of patient to
With that in mind, patient care and customer service must
compliment the surgical experience for surgeons to remain
competitive. Providing peri-operative massage to the surgical
package is one such way a surgeon can remain in a market share
A Physician Testimonial
My futuristic vision of the cosmetic surgery industry is that a
client's cosmetic desires as well as their comfort and recovery
needs are met by a "one-stop shop". Currently, the industry
lacks in following the client throughout their recovery.
There is not an active process for post-operative therapy like
there is in some specialties like orthopedic procedures.
Peri-Operative Therapy aligns itself with industry advancements
by recognizing the importance of a speedy recovery and a way that
helps improve comfort with recovery. Essentially, Soulstice
is our partner. They are another set of eyes and brains to
monitor and follow the client.
Soulstice offers a remarkable value and benefit to our clients
both medically and socially. From a medical stand point,
Peri-operative Therapy speeds up recovery from post-operative
edema. Socially, Soulstice provides care, comfort and support
in between post-operative visits. They provide another point
of service and contact.
New technology has allowed us to safely be more
aggressive. As a result, there is a greater requirement for
post-operative treatment like Peri-operative Therapy. They go
hand-in-hand. The more aggressive we get, the more we need
Soulstice and Peri-operative Therapy. By combining both
services we can create a more positive experience for the client. -
