Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
Hi there, my name is Tanya Hamlet and I am Registered Massage Therapist and Manual Lymphatic Drainage therapist. I have been practicing within the Oakville community since 2006. Over the course of my years of practice I have treated people of all age ranges from as young as 8 weeks old to 90 years old. I have successfully treated conditions such as sciatic pain, carpal tunnel, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, tendinitis, chronic back pain, as well as General Muscle aches/tension that occur as a result of our day to day activities such as working at a computer/sitting a desk.
I am a Vodder Certified therapist for Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) and Combined Decongestive Therapy (CDT). As an MLD therapist I treat people who have Lymphedema which is a chronic condition characterized by the build up of fluid in the body most commonly in the extremities. Treatment for this chronic issue includes hands on Manual Lymphatic Drainage therapy as well as the use of compression garments.
Manual Lymphatic drainage can also be helpful for relieving acute inflammation for injuries such as sprains and muscle strains. It is also beneficial in relieving sinus issues like those related to seasonal allergens.
In addition to providing treatment for Lymphedema I am a Certified Fitter for compression garments as well an Authorizer for the Assistive Devices Program (ADP).
My treatment plans for all my clients are individualized to meet their needs and personal goals.
