Due to the coronavirus situation we are still unable to meet in person.
But you can still keep in touch by downloading our latest newsletter.
Take a look and see how you could join in a Zoom meeting during March.
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing coronavirus situation, our meetings have been cancelled for the rest of 2020. We look forward to being able to meet up again in 2021
On Saturday 16th March we have Jeanne Everett of Hadenham Healthcare who will be demonstrating Kinesio taping.
Kinesio Taping was developed in the 1970’s by the Japanese chiropractor Kenzo Kase
The idea behind the tape is to apply a gentle lift on the skin, which then allows the lymphatic vessels underneath to absorb and drain lymphatic fluid from the oedematous area into an area with sufficient lymphatic drainage. The goal of this method is to re-direct the flow of lymph from a congested area into an area with sufficient lymphatic flow, thus reducing the volume of the oedematous area.
Please note we are solely a support group and are unable to offer any medical/clinical advice; should you have any concerns or questions in relation to your condition please contact your Health Care Professional, GP or Specialist Lymphoedema Nurse.
