Lymphoedema is swelling caused by problems with the lymphatic system… Any part of the body can be affected by lymphoedema, with a tendency to target the arms and legs.
The lymphatic system is a network of drainage tubes throughout the human body. This drains this fluid called lymph from the tissues and returns the fluid back into the bloodstream.
Women who have undergone surgery and radiotherapy for treatment of breast cancer are particularly susceptible to lymphoedema of the arm and, sometimes, the adjacent chest wall on the affected side. Men and women who have had surgery and radiotherapy for the treatment of cancer of the prostate, bowel or reproductive systems are also prone to lymphoedema of the legs or groin areas.
For the last 28 years Setter’s Health Centre has successfully offered Bowen Therapy, as another bowstring in the fight to alleviate lymphoedema. From the moment of diagnosis, Bowen Therapy’s Lymphodema procedure begins reducing pain, swelling, and stiffness of the effected areas.
Bowen Therapy is a set system of small moves, the technique is a gentle, fast and effective way to treat muscle and connective tissue disorders. The Bowen Therapy client can, within weeks, experience a reduction in fluid mass . In some Bowen Therapy clients, Lower Back pain symptoms have been known to cease altogether in three to six months instead of years by conventional means.
Less pain with Bowen Therapy equals more movement and better quality of life.
