Lymphedema Treatments at NRG Sanctuary

Personalized treatment packages for the relief of lymphedema symptoms and ongoing management with our Registered Massage Therapist.

Lymphedema Treatments at NRG Sanctuary

  • Looking for relief and management of the symptoms of lymphedema?
  • Finding moving difficult due to lymphoedema in your legs?
  • Need to reduce swelling after injury or surgery?

We are here to help! We offer weekly and monthly tailor-made lymphedema (lymphoedema) treatment packages to help to relieve symptoms and put in place proactive techniques moving forward.

Lymph drainage therapy is also very beneficial for reducing swelling. Regular sessions can help reduce the time it takes to recover and rehabilitate from accidents or surgeries such as knee, hip and shoulder replacements. Lymph drainage also reduces swelling enough to facilitate physiotherapy at an earlier stage of recovery, to help you heal faster.

Stay for daily treatments in a relaxing setting

For many, lymphedema requires daily treatment until the swelling is under control, and a sleeve or stocking can be fitted. However, having to travel back and forth every day to receive treatment affects everyday life and can be very tiring. If long distances are involved, it can also be prohibitively expensive.

Instead, come and stay here at NRG Sanctuary for daily treatment in our relaxing natural setting.

Our Registered Massage Therapist Linda specialises in creating tailor-made vacation breaks that include an innovative program of relaxation and treatment for lymphoedema patients.

With the NRG Sanctuary lymphedema package, you can experience:

  • A Manual Lymph Therapy massage and/or bandaging every day for 5-7 days a week
  • Forest therapy sessions
  • Regular relaxation massages
  • Learning new therapeutic exercises
  • Therapy pole walks to increase lymph flow and build endurance
  • Ongoing strategies to deal with the life altering changes lymphedema brings

What is Lymphedema?

Lymphedema is painful swelling of your tissues due to the build-up of fluid normally drained away by the lymphatic (lymph) system. When the lymph system gets blocked, or the lymph glands are impacted by treatment for cancer, the fluid cannot drain away effectively. This lack of drainage can also affect your immune system and ability to fight infection.

Causes of secondary lymphedema include:

  • Damage to your lymphatic system
  • Cancer treatment to or involving removal of your lymph nodes
  • Injury
  • Limb inflammation
  • Lack of regular movement in limbs due to limited/restricted mobility

The resulting swelling can cause changes in your skin, leaving you more prone to skin damage, infections and also reducing your mobility.

The aim of each of our lymphedema treatment breaks is to encourage and facilitate better drainage of fluids through a combination of manual manipulation (the massage part) and specific exercises in our peaceful natural settings.

DISCLAIMER: Lymphedema is a long-term (chronic) condition that should be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible by your physician. Our treatment vacations should be taken as part of your overall ongoing treatment regime, and not as a short-term replacement for ongoing medical care.
