Giving hope for lymphedema patients Lymphedema is a condition of chronic and progressive swelling that can be inherited or acquired. There is no cure at this time. However, the condition does respond very well to treatment and management – if the therapist is diligent and the patient compliant.
Breath of life: Treating the respiratory musculature Respiration is arguably the most vital human function. Struggling for breath is surely the most incapacitating and soul-destroying aspect of any illness.

Opening Keynote: HEALTH AND WELLNESS FOR PRACTITIONERS
Speaker: MaryBeth Roblin
Massage therapists often engage in labour intensive sessions with their patients, ensuring quality massage treatments and positive results. They spend countless hours looking after the health and wellness of their patients, but who’s looking after their own health and wellness? In this session, our practitioners will be reminded of the importance of taking care of their own health for practice longevity and overall wellness.

Reading the fine print In today's digital world, many have a personal social media presence and have become accustomed to simply clicking on the “I agree” to the terms of service button when signing up for their favourite social media sites.
