Signs of Lymphatic malfunction should NOT be ignored!

POST CANCER LYMPHATIC MALFUNCTION

IF YOU HAVE HAD ANY FORM OF CANCER TREATMENT AND HAVE HAD LYMPH NODES REMOVED, YOU MAY NEVER SUFFER FROM  LYMPHOEDEMA.

HOWEVER YOU SHOULD ALSO KNOW THAT YOU HAVE A 1 in 3 CHANCE OF IT HAPPENING.

PLEASE JUST BE AWARE THAT EARLY TREATMENT AND MLD MASSAGE CAN AND WILL PREVENT THE CONDITION FROM BECOMING WORSE, AS WILL SELF MASSAGE, HEALTHY DIET AND PLENTY OF REGULAR GENTLE EXERCISE.


If you have had a recent injury, post operative condition and the swelling has not gone down, or the area is still not healing properly, this can be an indication that you need MLD (manual lymphatic drainage), this moves trapped fluid and speeds up the healing process.

DO NOT LEAVE ANY SWELLING, the longer inflammation stays around, left untreated, the area around the injured tissues will continue to get harder (called fibrosis) unless the lymph fluid is removed from the area.

If you are reading this from another country and are unable to come in to Feel Good Factor, then please find your nearest registered MLD Therapist and have Manual Lymphatic Drainage as soon as you can.
