Managing Lymphedema Workshop
Project Pink'd invites breast cancer survivors to join us for our lymphedema workshop. This Bi-Annual Workshop will be held in partnership with Lori Buckley, OTR/L, CLT, Reiki Master who specializes in the treatment of lymphedema.
Bi-Annual Workshops will provide educational tools to manage the disease in addition to other side effects that can result from cancer treatments.
Elements of the workshop include:
- Purpose of the Lymphatic System
- Signs & Symptoms of Lymphedema
- Risk Factors & Reduction Strategies
- Treatment Interventions with Hands-On Instruction of Manual Lymphatic Drainage
- Identify Side Effects of Cancer Interventions
- Exercise to Improve Range of Motion
- Introduction to Love & Light Yoga practice offered by Project Pink'd
Note: This workshop is inclusive to ALL breast cancer survivors. You do not have to have lymphedema to register. It is our hope that this workshop will also provide valuable insight into lymphedema preventative strategies and knowledge on how to improve your functional mobility.
This complimentary program is offered to breast cancer survivors in NE & Western IA and is made possible by our many generous donors.
During this time of uncertainty, the health and well-being of our community is of our utmost concern. The April Lymphedema Workshop has been canceled.
Where: Xcel Community Center | 4526 S 143rd St. Omaha
