About this Event
Living your best with lymphoedema – Masterclass series
Living with lymphoedema can feel like a lonely journey, with expensive and exhausting processes. In particular if you are rural to any resources of experienced therapists the costs of travelling, especially if needing to hire transport will add up to hundreds of dollars for one trip.
The World Health Organization’s strategy for managing lymphoedema is based on rigorous skin hygiene, antibiotics and is aimed at reducing acute attacks of cellulitis.
The results suggested that a home based program was effective in reducing morbidity and required no additional human resources.
In this series of Facebook live sessions we will discuss the steps that you should consider for you to live an active and proactive life living with lymphoedema.
Each day we will be going live in our facebook group at 9am for 45 minutes, you get access to 5 masterclasses for $55. Instructions on accessing the group will be available at checkout.
