LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE
Lymphatic massage, also called lymphatic drainage or manual lymph drainage, is a technique developed in Germany for the treatment of lymphedema. The lymph system is the only system in the body without a pump. It relies on contractions of our skeletal muscle and smooth muscle cells for natural drainage, which is generally accomplished with daily natural movement. However, when a person’s mobility is limited or after lymph nodes have been removed (most often a mastectomy for breast cancer), this natural drainage of the lymph is quickly compromised and requires external help via periodic manual lymphatic drainage massages.
WHAT WE OFFER
CERULEAN’s medical-grade 48 cuffs Lower body Compression Therapy (BOA) device provides a more wide-ranging treatment than traditional manual lymphatic massages that are limited to the masseuse’s two hands. BOA uses 24-individualized cuff pockets in each leg to massage the entire circumference of the leg concurrently while applying pressure up to 140mmHg.
How does the BOA affect the body?
This approach delivers a more effective, consistent and repeatable treatment, massage after massage. In addition, the BOA unit is equipped with a biofeedback feature that individualizes and adapts the massage to each person specific body or as the person’s condition improves over time.
We also recommend combining your session with Whole Body Arctic Cryotherapy (WBAC) before each massage to increase the efficacy of your treatment.
The operator-free aspect of the Lower body Compression Therapy (BOA) unit renders the price per massage to average well below $1 per minute.
In contradiction with the traditional pre-packaged offering of manual massages, massage time with BOA will adapt and vary in length based on the biofeedback received by the device during the session, thereby, adjusting the massage to YOUR specific body. Expect the session to average between 42 mins to 55 minutes.

Single BOA massage: $45
Single BOA massages combined with WBAC: $65
Package of (10) BOA massages: $350

CONGRATULATIONS PEDRO GOMES!
Cerulean sponsored athlete Pedro Gomes won the 35th edition of the Mountain Man Olympic Triathlon on July 14, 2019 in Flagstaff, AZ. This event is one of the most prestigious races held in Arizona every year since 1984!
This Olympic distance triathlon (1500m swim, 40K time trial cycle and 10K run) kicked off with a beautiful dip in Lake Mary, where Pedro led the field out of water. Adding to his swim and scoring the fastest bike and run splits of the day as well, he led wire to wire and won the race in a time of 2 hours flat and 19 seconds with a winning margin of 13 minutes over second place finisher, Simon Quinkert. Bryan Dunn, a leading master’s triathlete in the country, was third in 2 hours, 13 minutes and 58 seconds.
The Mountain Man is also recognized as one of the “hardest races you will ever love” given the challenging cycle, leg and extremely demanding run course, all at 7000ft of elevation. Using the latest technology in altitude training and testing without ever leaving Scottsdale, AZ, Pedro began Cerulean services in April 2019 to prepare for this race. Pedro’s result, adding to the recent Cactusman Triathlon win, re-establishes him as the leading triathlete in Arizona after his return to the state early this year.
