Your lymph nodes are part of an important system that helps move fluids in your body. This system can be affected when you are undergoing cancer treatments, and can cause temporary problems or a lifetime concern for lymphedema. The NWT Breast Health/Breast Cancer Action Group in conjunction with Christina Vernon, a NWT Registered Massage Therapist, is pleased to offer this program on understanding your lymphatic system, how it works and what lymphedema is. Christina will share how to do Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) on yourself, self-care tips, and what to do when experiencing lymphedema.
A long-time northerner, Christina loves practicing massage and helping people. She graduated from the Somatics Institute School of Massage in 2005. Over the past several years, she has studied and practiced Cranio-Sacral Therapy (CST). She has also received training in working with people living with cancer and Manual Lymphatic Drainage.
