Hi, I’m Jackie,

jackie-main-1Hi, I’m Jackie, a fully qualified MLD therapist having trained here in the UK and at the renowned Dr Vodder School in Austria, where this specialised technique originated. This intensive training allowed me to study all aspects of this incredibly worthwhile and effective treatment, to include Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Decongestive/Compression Therapy.

My desire to help clients with specific problems relating to lymphatic disorders evolved from my training over 30 years ago as a Massage Therapist and Further Education Teacher. This gave me a broad range of experience both hands-on and teaching in massage, anatomy and physiology.

I am passionate about the more beneficial and challenging medical aspect that this treatment offers.


I am a certified member of MLD UK and the BLS (British Lymphology Society) and fully insured with Balen’s Insurance.



My approach to treating you.

I invite you to contact me free of charge for an initial conversation by phone to discuss your symptoms and history. If after our initial chat, if I feel that you will benefit from treatment, then I can book an appointment with you for a more in depth assessment.

A full consultation will involve a full medical history and an examination of your condition to decide, with you, on an appropriate treatment plan.

Depending on your history and condition, it may be necessary to consult with your Specialist and/or General Practitioner prior to commencement of treatment.
