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.

Complications of Lymphoedema can be various skin conditions of which cellulitis is the most common one.

Manuela King

Maneula KingManuela graduated in 2010 as a Remedial Massage Therapist from Paramount College in Perth. Since then she has extended her knowledge to offer professional help for people who suffer from chronic illnesses. Manuela did her postgraduate training in Oncology Massage through the nationally accredited ‘Oncology Massage Training’ which led her further into studying Manual Lymphatic Drainage with the internationally accredited ‘Dr Vodder Akademie’ where she graduated at the Vodder Clinic in Austria in 2014. In 2016 she completed her professional Scenar Training with RITM Scenar Australia.

"I believe that any therapy is most effective when science and intuition are combined to achieve an individual approach for each person. No two people are the same, therefore no two treatments should be the same. A deep tissue massage can be wonderful for one person yet for another, it can have an undesired effect. It is up to the person and the therapist to find techniques that suit and can be helpful in dealing with specific health challenges."

She is highly qualified through her Chemistry Degree, high level of accreditation by the RITM SCENAR Institute and has been mentored by the best practitioners in the field. Her dedication and caring nature extends into her values of day to day life.

Iridology is the science and art of analysing the iris (coloured part) of the eye. Iridology is not a diagnostic tool, however it is a useful guide for practitioners to identify areas of strength and weakness in a person’s constitution. Colours, texture, patterns and other iris signs can be a guide to what is happening in a patient’s body. Digital iris photos provide opportunity for detailed analysis and records to be kept. You will be amazed by what your iris reveals!

Iridology forms part of our Naturopath's initial consultation.
