What is Lymphoedema

Lymphoedema is caused by an overload of the lymphatic system resulting  in a swelling of one or more regions of the body. It is not curable but can be managed.


There are two main categories of Lymphoedema

a) Primary Lymphoedema: caused by a malformation of lymphatic vessels and/or nodes and might not appear till later on in life. 

b) Secondary Lymphoedema:  is caused by damage to the lymphatic system, mostly the axillary and inguinal lymph nodes.

Most frequently secondary lymphoedema occurs after surgery and radiation treatment for cancer. An oedema may develop directly after treatment or over time as a result of a chronic overload of the lymphatic system.

There can be various complications with Lymphoedema of which Cellulitis is the most common one.

What to expect from your first SCENAR treatment

Before your treatment, you will be assessed by one of our skilled Chiropractors, who will do an adjustment (if necessary) then discuss your problems with our SCENAR expert.

You will be asked to undress (underwear is fine – so are pants in some circumstances) and will be placed into a SCENAR blanket. The SCENAR blanket will help you to relax and get the most out of your treatment.

Our SCENAR expert will then begin by running the SCENAR device over your body to get some readings. They will then use these readings to devise the best course of action for your treatment.

The device does not hurt – the most you will feel is a tickle, or prickly sensation.

Iridology (pronounced eye-ri-dology) is the art and science of analyzing the color and structure of the iris to determine tissue integrity throughout the body, thereby gaining valuable health information regarding strengths and weaknesses.

Iridologists study the iris, particularly the color, markings, changes and other aspects, as they are associated with tissue degeneration. Iridology is one form of analysis that is non-invasive to the body, requiring no cutting, x-raying or use of any other invasive technique to complete the analysis.
