LAO Virtual Support Group

_________________________________________________________

Our therapist this month will be talking about lymphatic watershed lines and how to use mental imagery to enhance the benefits of self massage.

This support group meeting will take place next Wednesday September 22nd @ 3 pm (EST). Zoom link will be sent to all registrants! 

More about Bobbie:

Bobbie Flint, BScH, RMT, CDT, RHN has been a registered massage therapist since 2013 and combined decongestive therapist since 2016. Bobbie believes that every lymphedema patient can benefit from understanding more about the lymphatic system, why swelling happens, and how to incorporate self massage into our routine. We look forward to sharing this beneficial information with you! 

__________________________________________________________

We have launched a monthly lymphedema support group created for and by people with lymphedema.  We come together to share information, hopes, fears, successes and hardships in a safe space to co-create support and growth. 

We launched this initiative for March 6th, 2021 in honor of World Lymphedema Day, this monthly event will be facilitated by a volunteer member lymphedema therapist from across Ontario. 

Facilitators are here to guide and support the group. 

Guiding principles:

  1. We are based on self-help and mutual support

  2. We believe in learning from each other 

  3. We believe in positive and non-judgmental attitudes

  4. We believe in all voices being heard 

Opening the group:

  1. Introduce facilitators

  2. Explain mute/unmute

  3. Explain using chat features and raise hand to talk

  4. Start with an icebreaker (tell us where you are from and where your lymphedema is)


Our goal is that everyone gets and gives support. Please use positive language. We hope to see you there!


First 24 people to register may attend!
