lymphatic massage

The Institut Bordet Lymphology Clinic brings together doctors and paramedical professionals who offer a structured, multidisciplinary response to lymphatic disorders and to questions about the lymphatic system that certain cancer patients may ask.

The Clinic also offers its services to individuals with primary lymphoedema, lipolymphoedema and secondary lymphoedema following trauma or infection. 

A number of specialist doctors with broad practical experience of these problems offer consultations which can lead first to proposals for further investigation, followed by the option of a range of therapeutic approaches and their implementation.
