Lymphatic Lifestyle Solutions

A Weight Management Program for Individuals with Lymphedema

Weight lost in our first group so far.

“I wish I could feel better and do more”

Consider This

One of the most common causes or contributing factors to Lymphedema is Obesity. Lymphedema Therapy is effective in reducing the symptoms. But, wouldn’t it be nice if we could actually address one of the underlying causes and improve the condition long term. Fortunately Lymphedema and Lipedema has received more attention in Medical research in tha last few years. A well designed weightloss program has proven to be an effective method to improve the conditions.

To address this, Self Care Therapy is now offering a Lifestyle and Weight management program based on the Duke University Lifestyle Clinics evidence based approach. The program is developed by Leslyn Keith, OTD, OTR/L – LANA

 

The next Live group is planned to start on July 8th. Limited to 10 people. Save your spot now!
