Services — Certified Lymphedema Therapy (CLT) Providers

The therapists listed on our website are trained in Combined Decongestive Therapy (CDT) and have successfully graduated from a school that adheres to the Lymphedema Association of North America (LANA) standards. This minimum of 135 hours advanced training is the most effective manual therapy used to treat lymphedema in the damaged lymphatic system. It consists of Manual Lympatic Drainage (MLD), compression, bandaging, education to learn how to manage lymphedema, exercise to promote lymphatic flow and skin care to prevent infections.

This is the recognized treatment by the Canadian Lymphedema Framework (CLF) and therefore the Lymphedema Association of Saskatchewan Inc (LAS). This site is for information and community support only.

No doctor referral is needed but is advised to assist with insurance claims.
