RLD Research study

Details were published in 2016 of a study carried out with 26 women, all suffering  from lymphoedema in one arm following treatment for breast cancer. A significant reduction in the volume of the affected arm was identified at follow-up compared to baseline. This reduction in volume appeared to be maintained for more than six months. Participant concerns were significantly reduced and their wellbeing significantly increased. No serious adverse effects were reported.

Please note; first treatment will include questions about your medical history in order to tailor your treatment accordingly, and ensure you are able to receive the treatment safely.
