Your Private Lymphoedema Therapist
I have been in the care industry since 1977. Having trained as a level 2 nurse in HM Forces and then as a level 1 nurse at Canterbury Christ Church University, I have a wealth of nursing knowledge from all aspects of the care industry and from diverse approaches from many different cultures.
I have an HE6 in palliative care and tissue viability and continue to broaden my knowledge with Continued Professional Development. Swelling Matters is devoted to holistic pain and swelling management with medically registered techniques and is unique in that the company brings the treatments to you in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Swollen limbs and pain are not resolved by 1500hrs Monday to Friday; they continue, unfortunately, through the evenings and at weekends. Swelling Matters has varying clinic times to ensure customers receive advise and care where and when needed.
You can contact Swelling Matters via the website, by phone and on Facebook. Please note, if I do not answer the phone, it is because I am busy with a client. Please leave a message and I will return the call A.S.A.P.
