My body is full of excess fluid with my feet and ankles being particularly swollen. I also have a haematoma following a cycling accident and hitting tarmac at 20 mph. The NHS felt that nothing could be done except intensive physio despite it now causing pain when walking.
The lady who treated me was properly qualified and her clients included many with cancer. I explained about my thyroid and she does have some knowledge of thyroid disorders.
Treatment consisted of very gentle movements of stroking and pumping to stimulate the lymphatic system into working more effectively. Absolutely no pain at all. Particular attention was paid to my swollen feet, swollen ankles and haematoma.
I've booked for another session next week, she is optimistic that my body function can be improved and has passed on some tips that will help such as using a body brush and deep breathing.
I came away feeling very relaxed and optimistic that better health isn't too far away!
