Lymphoedema Care: Combined Decongestive Therapy and Compression Therapy

MLD is not only an effective part of total lymphoedema management but is also an excellent treatment
for general health care and may help reduce the risks of the development of secondary lymphoedema.
The main aim of this management regime is to bring the body back to as stable and normal a situation
as possible. Each treatment plan is tailored to the individual client. Please contact me for further details.

This approach to the management of lymphoedema consists of:
Manual Lymph Drainage
Compression Therapy
Skin Care

There are two phases to the treatment plan for existing or long-term lymphoedema:

Intensive Treatment Phase
Frequent MLD sessions with bandaging or compression system.
Exercise, self massage and skin care to be practised at home.

Maintenance Program
Wearing compression garments or the use of a compression system as prescribed.
Continuing exercise programme, self massage and skin care.
MLD sessions as required. MLD therapy and education may help in the risk reduction of the development
of lymphoedema.
