VIDEO CONSULTATIONS NOW AVAILABLE
We are dedicated to providing care that is accessible to our community. For this reason, we are now offering live video conferencing services for those in areas that are not serviced by a lymphatic therapist or for those unable to attend the clinic for any reason. Catharine Burt RN, BScN, RMT, CDT is pioneering this innovative approach to care and offers one-on-one educational consultations online as well as educational workshops for small groups online. All that is needed is an internet connection. Meetings can be held on any device (laptop, desk top computer, tablet or smartphone).

FOR YOUR INFORMATION
This time we are looking at a study indicating that mastectomy surgery and/or radiation treatment can interfere with normal shoulder motion. This study included only a small amount of breast cancer survivors, but brings up some good points for further queries into the effects of treatment. It also stimulates us to find a professional to assess our shoulder function and prevent or correct any dysfunction.
