I have worked in acute care (hospitals) and community health care teams for many years. Several years ago, I had to leave my job in the local community team (management had ideas about making all staff full-time despite family commitments). This helped me to pursue another dimension of my career - I studied lymphoedema therapy and cancer care - and here we are today. I went to massage school in Texas and improved my massage techniques dramatically. With my knowledge of the human body, injuries and sickness, the lymphatic system and the cancer journey, I have developed a passion for doing massage that eases people's stress levels, pain levels and oedema levels. And I also assist people in achieving their mobility issues with exercise advice and guidance. I enjoy helping people and seeing them feel better after a session with me. Sessions are at least 60 minutes long, and I try to give the client as much time as they need to off-load issues and address stuff that is important to them. My care is client-focused.
Since April 2022 I have worked in my clinic in Hurlstone Park - my primary mode of treatment here is massage and education. Occasionally I will measure clients for compression garments or provide lymphoedema bandaging for reducing the size of limb/s. Mobile (in-home) services are available, mainly for those that cannot leave their home.
What does Lymphaction mean? This is the 'word' that came to my mind as I embarked on lymphoedema therapy. I am a lymphoedema therapist who wants to take action on people's lymph system/lymphoedema, and I want clients to take action too!! Let's get into LYMPHACTION!
