Therapy Room

The Lymphatic Health Clinic now offers Sequential Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (SIPC) therapy in the clinic.

SIPC is a compression pump therapy that involves inflatable sleeves which are fitted around the legs, arms, or trunk. The sleeve is attached to a device that intermittently fills the sleeve with air to create pressure around the limb, then deflates to stimulate lymphatic flow and the circulatory system.

The fluids are moved from the extremities towards the trunk and thoracic ducts. The compression device is programmed to deliver individualized settings which are  dependent on your lymphatic health needs

Compression Therapy Room

The SIPC pump is used in the Lymphatic Health Clinic for clients with chronic conditions which impair lymphatic health such as lymphoedema, lipoedema, venous insufficiency. The SIPC pumps also aid pre- surgery health and post-surgery recovery, promote wound, and venous ulcer healing.

 Professional athletes use the SIPC pumps for sports recovery by accelerating removal of metabolic waste products in the tissues. The SIPC therapy may also enhance performance.
