Manual Lymph Therapy



Rumbolds Lymph Clinic is situated on the Surrey/ Sussex border close to Haslemere/Guildford.

The primary treatment for which we are BUPA accredited involves Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Combined Decongestive Therapy(Vodder level 3). We also use Low level laser therapy to reduce any fibrosis and also promote tissue and scar healing, kinesiotape to reduce lymph swelling, and redirect lymph flow to healthy lymph vessels and nodes if they have been removed or damaged. As a secondary treatment we can apply compression bandaging as well as measure for and order compression garments.

The following are some of the main conditions treated:

  • Post operative lymphoedema/lymphostasis which in the case of cancers can arise after node removal and/or radiotherapy causing swelling

  • Any tissue swelling/oedema in face and neck,chest,arms/legs/ankles/abdomen which can arise for non cancer related conditions or may be congenital

  • Sinus blockages/migraine/tinnitis/aural/ME/continuous throat infections, and also cranial lymph flow blockages which may cause some of the above symptoms

  • Post cancer treatment related oedema (E.g following node removal, radiotherapy, resulting in: face and neck swelling, post mastectomy chest and arm swelling, groin or lower limb swelling

  • Abdominal and gynaecological surgery possibly affecting abdominal lymph flow with consequent possible abdominal swelling, lower limb oedema and lymphorrhea
