TASMANIA’S FIRST LASER CENTRE FOR LYMPHOEDEMA
Our centre was established in St Mary’s in January 2000 and is a pioneer and leader in the use of Scanning Laser Therapy in Tasmania.
Today the Centre has two Low Level Laser units with treatments delivered via a scanner and probe. These units offer a wide range of wavelengths and intensities, enabling therapists to optimise treatments for specific conditions ranging from Lymphoedema to promoting healing of post-surgery, wounds and musculoskeletal injuries.
The Tasmanian Lymphoedema Centre is a not-for-profit charity registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission and all donations to the centre are tax deductible.
Our programs are designed to promote mobility and wellbeing, minimise pain and discomfort and help restore clients’ quality of life.
Some of our services:
- Low Level Laser Therapy for Lymphoedema— laser light penetrates tissue and is absorbed by cells where it is converted to energy and has many benefits for cellular metabolism and healing
- Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage – Massage Therapy for Lymphoedema
- Low Level Laser Therapy for Musculoskeletal Injuries and Physical Rehabilitation
- Therapeutic/Remedial Style Massage
- Bowen Therapy for soft tissue and ligament release and body re-alignment
- Relaxation Massage and Pamper treatments
- Acupressure for Headaches, Sinus problems, Foot massages
- Some Health Rebates are available
The Tasmanian Lymphoedema Centre Inc is very grateful to the Tasmanian Community Fund for it’s support in the purchase of our new InBody 720 Body Scanner.
