This is different to providing massage alone. Certified Lymphoedema therapists are trained to assess the body site that has the issue and to identify other factors that may be contributing to your lymphoedema. This includes incorporating self-management strategies such as exercise, skin care, and what type of compression would best suit the affected area, we can also refer to nutritionists and counsellors to help you regain control and make lifestyle changes. We assist you in preventing and managing exacerbations, along with communicating with the other members of your health care team, including your GP, nurse specialist, oncologist, and surgeon to ensure your treatment is both safe and effective.
