Since 2017 I’ve had lymphoedema in my left arm and hand caused by a mastectomy, reconstruction, chemotherapy and radiotherapy following a diagnosis of invasive breast cancer.

I wore a sleeve and a glove all day and a stronger glove at night. I had to wear my wedding rings on my right hand.  If i didn’t wear it I was in pain.  It was deemed mild and I couldn’t get much help from the hospital.  Every day I would have a reminder of what had happened and what may happen in the future.
Then I got in touch with Tony. One session of gentle touch around my arm, shoulder and left side was warming and relaxing. The fluid moved, I could visibly see the difference as he worked.

That was 2 months ago.

I haven’t worn my sleeve or glove since.  I don’t have any aches or pains in my arm and my rings fit my fingers again.

I will definitely call on Tony again to help maintain this.  Not only has it helped physically but mentally too.
