Our physiotherapists have additional training in lymphatic drainage massage, lymphatic compression and exercises for lymphoedema.
How physio can help manage lymphoedema symptoms
Lymphatic drainage massage
Massage is a gentle technique used to drain lymph out of a limb into an area of the body that normally drains unassisted. This can reduce symptoms of stiffness and swelling.
Fitting of compression garments
Lymphatic compression garments can be very useful in controlling the amount of swelling in your legs or arms in people with lymphoedema.
Exercise therapy for lymphoedema
Exercise is recommended to assist drainage of lymphatic swelling in the affected area and maintain your cardiovascular health. We help develop a program and ensure correct exercise technique.

I saw Grace for my weak pelvic floor muscles during pregnancy. Grace helped me understand not only my physical health but also she helped me emotionally by explaining things in a caring and professional way. After just a couple of sessions I felt so much better and day by day the pain became much more manageable. Grace is so knowledgeable in Women’s health and is an excellent pelvic floor physio. Many thanks Grace for assisting me through my pregnancy 🤰
Emily is an excellent pelvic floor physio and I cannot recommend her highly enough! As a womens health physio she provided a safe and welcoming environment and showed she truly cares for all her patients. She is highly knowledgeable about women’s pelvic floor issues particularly relating to post pregnancy. Worth the drive from St Marys as I was recommended to come from a friend at the gym! 🤗
Thanks Jared for a great initial treatment for my arm, shoulder and neck. Jared honed in on problem areas very quickly and intuitively and began a successful treatment straight away. Very thorough in collecting information and developing a plan for recovery. Clearly explained process. I felt very optimistic and positive about my recovery, after my initial session.
