Rachel is a practising nurse, in addition to ScarWork she offers Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Decongestive Lymphatic Treatment Therapist (developed by Austrian, Dr. Vodder). These combinations of treatments are perfect for post-operative recovery. Injury, surgery or radiotherapy can cause congestion to our lymphatic system which results in localised swelling. Rachel is perfectly placed to offer scar therapy to clients with ongoing swelling or when they are in their initial recovery period (around 8 weeks to 20 weeks post-operatively). In the initial post-operative period, combining lymphatic and scar treatment may really help reduce recovery times.
Rachel has a holistic approach to therapies, as well as her more clinical background, she is trained in massage and as a relaxation and meditation instructor.
Rachel qualified as a nurse in 2002, and went on to attend the highly respected Dr Vodder course for treatment of the lymphatic system, Rachel is qualified to work with lymphedema and offer decongestive therapy.
