Purple House are pleased to announce a new service at the Cancer Support Centre in Bray.
Thanks to funding from the National Cancer Control Programme, we will now be offering a course of six free Manual Lymph Drainage Lymphoedema treatments for Cancer patients.
The service will be provided in Purple House by Tania King (MT CLT NMT Specialist Medical Lymphatic and Sport Treatments) who is a member of MLD Ireland.
What is lymphatic drainage?
Your lymphatic system helps eliminate your body’s waste. A healthy, active lymphatic system uses the natural movements of smooth muscle tissue to do this.However, Cancer surgery, medical conditions, or other damage can cause fluids to build up in your lymph system and your lymph nodes, a condition known as lymphedema. Procedures that affect or remove your lymph nodes can cause lymphedema as a side effect.Lymphedema will only occur in the area near a surgical site.For example, if you have lymph nodes removed as a part of cancer surgery to your left breast, only your left arm, not your right, might be affected with lymphedema.
