PATIENTS COMMENTS / BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES
child, a four- year old suffering from Cerebral
Palsy: Mother's comments:
"She has better nights sleep now and always sleeps all the way
through the night after her treatment. She has a reduction in
saliva. She always coughs up a lot of phlegm through the treatment
which we would normally need to remove with a suction device.
Her immune resistance has improved drastically, she has less colds.
At the moment, I very rarely have to use the suction device at
all after three months of treatment which Joanne has weekly.
Paula's comments: treatment
of Ulcerative Colitis:
"My treatment program was three times per week for three weeks
dropping to once per week for four weeks, to then a maintenance
program of one treatment every four to five weeks. This keeps
my symptoms at bay, I still take "Asacol" which helps my immune
system as a preventative treatment. However, I was on steroid
treatment but I came off of those half way through my course of
treatment of M.L.D. The M.L.D. has worked so well that I cannot
even remember the last time that I had a "bad bout""
Treatment of a large secondary arm lymphoedema
"I had an intensive course to start with, which was
combined decongestive therapy (M.L.D. with compression bandaging)
every day five days per week for three weeks. In that time my
arm reduced in size dramatically and also became much softer.
The before and after picture shows my arm after the third week
of intensive therapy, but since then my arm has reduced further
and I continue to have a treatment once every month which suits
me. I now can wear long sleeved shirts which I could not before.
Moreover, I can fit into a compression sleeve which I now wear
every day. I used to get an infection called Cellulitus regularly
which I have not had anymore. I feel more relaxed and it has made
me more self confident."
Roy: Crushed foot injury due to compression
from a vehicle
My foot was kept in an "iceboot" for two weeks. The doctors feared
that I would loose my foot. The pictures show my foot in hospital
and it was still infected. I had antibiotics for it, however,
I could not receive any physiotherapy due to the infection. When
I came home the foot would not seem to heal, as I suffer also
from bad circulation, I could not put it on the floor and continued
to rely on crutches. I contacted Nicole and she treated my lower
leg and foot for the next fourteen days. It was miraculous as
you can see from the "after" picture, the infection I had cleared,
the open wound healed over and I had more feeling in the foot.
It was also good at relieving the pain. I am so glad I had this
therapy as I feel it saved my foot from being amputated.
Marie: Cosmetic Eye Lid Surgery & Face Lift
My name is Marie I am 47 yrs of age,
and I have just had surgery on my eyelids and a face lift. As
part of my treatment I was strongly advised by my surgeon to have
at least 6 MLD treatments. I booked my first MLD treatment 4 day's
after my surgery. Whilst I still had stitches and staples in my
hairline and behind my ears. After my first session with Nicole,
I was amazed that my swollen eyes were brighter and less swollen,
my bruising was minimal and I could open my eyes more. I cannot
recommend MLD enough.
Bilateral Maxillary Osteotomy
I'm 21 years
old, and I have had my top jaw moved forwards by 6mm to correct
my bite. I was in hospital for 2 days and came home
looking like I'd taken on Mike Tyson! I was horribly
swollen and was having difficulty hearing due to congestion in
my nose and ears. Nicole treated me on days 5, 7 and 9
after the operation. After the first treatment my hearing
returned to normal, and after the three treatments the swelling
had completely subsided and the pain in my jaw was much
improved. I feel sure the treatments speeded up my
