Lymphatic Pressure Therapy
Was created over five years bringing together the missing link from post-op despondency to knowing there are trained therapists committed in breast cancer aftercare for much needed effective therapeutic recovery.
Once trained in Lymphatic Pressure Therapy* you become a Lymphatic Pressure Therapist and a registered UK Lymphology Clinic to use and display the UKLC logo indicating to clients and professional bodies that a high standard of training has been achieved. *must pass the final exam and does not apply to Lymphatic Integrated Massage training - only to those who have trained in breast cancer aftercare.
Our dynamic short course in lymphatic integrated massage designed to enable a better understanding of the lymphatic system and the importance of its stimulation for optimum health and wellbeing. Lymphatic integrated massage, LIM, is only administered on lymphatic systems with no trauma or disruptions to pathways. This therapy is not suitable or available post-cancer but highly recommended for stressed clients.
Hi, I'm Yvette Jordan, founder of UKLC
I have been a practicing therapist for over forty years and in 2006 I ventured into the world of lymphatics, lymphoedema, and cancer aftercare by training in level III CDT Lymphoedema Therapy at The Foëldi Klinik, Lymphology Hospital, Germany.
A City and Guilds teacher, and foundation Kinesiologist from my experience I`m known as a Lymphatic Specialist Practitioner having spent six years working in a GP surgery. And as a personal trainer, I specialise in pain management and post-operative recovery through the realignment of the musculoskeletal system. Effective lymphatic exercise helps remove swelling with a variety of lymphatic dysfunctional conditions to prevent deterioration.
I am the Think Tree Hub Subject Matter Expert for Lymphology and recently have the privilege of currently working with the British Masters Athletics Federation to help alleviate many lymphatic health issues.
Alongside the UKLC lymphatic training courses, I am currently running the first Lymphatic Health Online service to give access to those who need to speak to a professional about their lymphatic or lymphoedema concerns.
Meet The Team
"Being able to make the difference to a breast cancer client in the way that Lymphatic Pressure Therapy does is absolutely incredible.
I am delighted to be part of this ground-breaking therapy and from experience, I am looking forward to new therapists being able to help many more of these clients who so deserve this amazing new therapy. I love the massage industry, I have also practiced Bowen and Reiki therapies for over 20 years.
I have really enjoyed the tranquillity and harmony that our industry brings and look forward to helping more people".
LIM Teacher & Therapist
“I cannot believe the effect that Lymphatic Integrated Massage has had on my clients, and in their words, it has ascended my therapy to another level. It feels truly awesome to be able to massage the lymphatic system knowing I am improving my client’s health, and they really do feel the difference that this finishing therapy has.”
As an experienced massage therapist, I use my natural ability to select different modalities to suit my client’s needs. My goal is to work with them to take better care of their health long term. Although I`m based in Coventry my clients think nothing of traveling up from London for my Suther Therapy, especially now I`ve introduced LIM.
LIM results were the motivation and interest to train to become a LIM teacher because now I want to help other therapists improve their skills in lymphatic health, you really have no idea the powerful effects of LIM an advanced MLD application can have until your clients say “Wow, now I really feel you have finished my massage”.
"I have seen huge improvements and such positive changes with my clients in this new therapy and I am so pleased to be able to offer this along with all my other therapies."
"It is four years since I had breast cancer and a double mastectomy, I didn't think that I would see any benefits from lymphatic treatment. However, the increased range of movement through my muscles is reawakening and has improved and subsequently my pain disappeared over the course of the programme, along with improvement in my overall well-being inspiring me to help others do the same”.
Immersed in the world of lymphoedema since 2006 and successfully treating many different forms of lymphatic health conditions, UKLC was created to help further knowledge and understanding of this relatively unknown therapy. Since then, we have successfully trained therapists and our Breast Cancer Aftercare therapy has been officially proven to advance recovery, significantly improving the lives of cancer clients. Results of these successful outcomes were presented at the 1st UK Lymphatic Science meeting.
Our level three Lymphatic Integrated Massage is an insightful and informative start on your training journey bringing light to the importance of lymphatic system healthcare. A truly extraordinary form of manual lymphatic drainage offering a complete finishing effect to any therapy. James Suther, of Suther Therapy, has recently become a UKLC LIM Teacher after his client's experiences have blown him away. He truly feels in the current health climate all therapists should be offering this as a finishing therapy to their clientele and stop ignoring this essential system within their therapy practices.
As NHS services are becoming more and more stretched and little or no attention is being paid to lymphatic health, UKLC is delighted to be offering a brand-new Lymphatic Health Online service. It will be such a bonus for anyone and everyone to be able to have this direct online contact offering professional and experienced advice and support. Yvette of UKLC was proud to have collaborated with world-renowned Lymphoedema Professor Neil Piller in bringing together his internationally used and amended Lymphoedema Risk Assessment Guide (LERAG) for cancer patients, now available from the UKLC website as a downloadable document it allows enlightenment and self-help in the constant frustration for patients to understand the post cancer condition effecting 1 in 5, known as lymphoedema.
As the Lymphology Subject Matter Expert for the Think Tree Hub, UKLC is also working with the British Masters Athletics Federation to spread the word amongst all athletes, that by improving the health and flow of their lymphatic system the rewards and implications are exceptional and are essential for faster performance, whether pre- or post-competition or injury recovery.
