Heather has studied lymphatic therapy in the Bruno Chickly curriculum. Lymphatic therapy is a gentle, light touch, that stimulates circulatory return from congested areas. It can be useful in managing side effects of cancer treatment, chronic sinus infections, and post-op.
Post-mastectomy patients are the most frequently in need of lymphatic therapy. Insurance covers Physical Therapists doing your lymphatic care, but not nurses or massage therapists. Heather recommends you begin with a therapist who will be covered by insurance - usually at the same facility where your cancer was treated.
If you have already completed the first stage of active treatment, and you'd like to continue occasional maintenance care with Heather, please be in touch.
However, if you are looking for lymphatic therapy after elective plastic surgeries such as tummy tuck, Brazilian fat transfer, etc, you will need to find someone else. Plastic surgery patients are too often unwilling to be fragrance free for their appointments.
Please use the practitioner directory at Chickly Health Institute to find another qualified therapist.
