Massage and Manual Therapy - Medical and Relaxation
Welcome. My name is Clare Landy. I am a Physiotherapist and Massage Therapist, specialising in relaxation, oncology and lymphoedema/lymphatic massage and lymphoedema treatment. I have extensive experience working with the elderly, post-op/acute, chronic conditions and during/post cancer treatment.
I am a gentle therapist, providing massage and manual therapy to those with the following conditions: chronic pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic neurological problems, frail elderly, chronic swelling in body, lymphoedema (primary and secondary) and many more. I have Oncology Massage Training from the USA, to allow me to treat cancer patients safely. I am a certified Lymphoedema Therapist. Just call to discuss your problems and to see if I can help you. If clients cannot come to my clinic in Hurlstone Park and live locally, I can visit clients in their homes, and treat either on their own beds, or provide a massage table or chair. The aim of the treatments is to provide relief from discomfort, reduce swelling/oedema, to help restore and/or improve function, and to promote relaxation.
A well-known gentle form of massage, helpful in providing relief from many ailments. It is great for relaxation, pain relief and improving joint range of motion.
A gentle and safe massage experience, where the therapist designs a specific treatment plan with the client's medical and personal needs considered.
MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE (MLD) and COMPLETE DECONGESTIVE THERAPY (CDT)
MLD is a gentle form of massage designed to move stagnant lymph fluid from areas in the body where it is trapped. It is especially useful during and post cancer treatment, and post surgery. It is also essential in the management of primary and secondary lymphedema. People with chronic venous congestion (swelling in lower legs) would benefit from this massage along with prescription of compression garments. MLD is also recommended for ladies with lipedema.
As well as massage, an important component of my treatments includes education in self-care and maintenance.
If a limb is heavy and swollen, massage and bandaging (CDT) can help to reduce the size of the limb in preparation for wearing compression garments to stop the swelling returning.
MASSAGE FOR BURNS SURVIVORS
A massage session designed to address any areas of concern and/or for comfort and relaxation, taking care to promote movement and healing.
ONCOLOGY SCAR THERAPY
Oncology scar therapy is gentle massage and education to help improve the function and appearance of the body and scarring following cancer surgery and cancer treatment.
WOUND AND ULCER CARE
Have you got a slow or non-healing wound on your leg? Are you wearing the correct compression? Are you using the best dressings to help with healing your wound? Has your nurse or doctor checked your bloods, meds and diet to ensure you are doing your best to help with healing your wound? I am happy to assess your chronic wound and swelling/oedema to see if I can facilitate a better rate of healing of your wound. Wounds fall into 3 categories - healable, hard to heal, and non-healable. If you are unable to attend my clinic, please get in touch and I wll do my best to see you or chat over the phone and see what your options are.
I am able to help people with acute and chronic health conditions. Are you having trouble getting out of chair? Are you losing your balance? Do you have pain when walking or getting dressed? Have you got reduced movement and function following surgery or illness? I can design an exercise program and can assist you with getting back to being your best. I can also recommend equipment that may facilitate a safer and better quality of life. Don't give in to your ailments! Just call me for advice and I'll see if I can help you get back on track. If I can't help, I'll try to find someone that can. Modalities I use include:
manual therapy - soft tissue mobilisation, stretches to soft tissue and joints
manual lymphatic drainage massage
exercise prescription - for strengthening, improving balance, posture correction etc
garment prescription (compression for swelling)
rehabilitation - motor relearning, strengthening, carer advice and education
