Lymphoedema & Lipoedema Treatments

Initial Consultation & Treatment - 1.25 Hrs - $75

Subsequent Treatments - 1Hr - $70

Lymphoedema is the accumulation of excessive amounts of protein-rich fluid resulting in swelling of one or more regions of the body.This is due to a mechanical failure of the lymphatic system and occurs when the demand for lymphatic drainage exceeds the capacity of the lymphatic circulation. The condition usually affects the limb(s) although it may also involve the trunk, breast, head and neck or genital area. The lymphatic system is a network of vessels and nodes throughout the body that transports fluid (lymph) from the body tissues back to the bloodstream. The functions of the lymphatic system are to maintain the volume and protein concentration of the extracellular fluid in the body and to assist the immune system in destroying pathogens and removing waste products from the tissues. This type of treatment is recommended for anyone who has a sluggish or malfunctioning lymphatic system either due to fatigue, trauma or illness. I follow the protocol recommended by Vodder - where the hands on treatment is done in conjunction with compression and an exercise prescription. This produces more sustainable results and is especially useful to those who have to have ongoing treatment as in the case of lymph nodes excision or radiotherapy.. It is a very gentle treatment and the slightly deeper pressure is applied only as tolerated in cases of fibrosis. Also suitable for pre/post surgery recovery from hip / knee/ankle surgery and can be applied quite early on in the recovery phase.

Remedial Massage

Initial Consultation & Massage - 1.25Hrs - $75

Subsequent Treatments - 1 Hr - $70

Any pathology relating to movement is addressed using mainly myofascial release. I also incorporate Trigger point therapy, pin and stretch techniques and gentle joint mobilisation for optimum results. Also trained in myofascial cupping which is a gentle and preferred form of soft tissue release which obtains amazing results.

Relaxation Massage

Massage - 1 Hr - $70

The peaceful and serene space allows for deep relaxation states to be entered allowing for the body and the mind to emerge stress free after this 1 hour treatment. Essential oils are used to aid relaxation. Pressure is varied to suit the needs of the client, but this treatment is seldom deep and painful.

Yoga / Pilates Therapy & Exercise Prescription

Session - 45 Min - $50

One on one yoga /Pilates /mediation and mindfulness sessions aimed at quieting the mind and calming the restless spirit. Exercises are tailor made to address individual pathologies. Often Pilates based exercises either on the reformer, gym ball or mat are incorporated in this session.

Pneumatic Compression

Standard Treatment - 45 Min - $50

This is offered to those needing ongoing regular compression. The machine used is called a lymphapress which delivers pressure in the ranges of 20-80 mmhg and is ideally suited for those with lipedema , lymphedema and venous issues. The lymphapress increases lymph vessels function by delivering sequential dynamic pneumatic compression therapy in a safe, gentle and effective manner.
