The Casley-Smith technique used for decongestive lymphatic therapy is based on evidence, logic and simplicity, making it readily applicable for treatment and self-management. The rationale for this specialized technique is based on research on the anatomy, physiology/pathology, imaging and treatment of the lymphatic system and its disorders. The Casley-Smith training for lymphoedema therapists prepares them to become familiar with clinical reasoning and decision making processes in order to offer their patients a customised treatment protocol.
Self-management is key to successful long term lymphoedema reduction and is one of the corner stones of treatment with the Casley-Smith approach. It was developed and highly emphasised by Dr. Judith Casley-Smith whose work was challenged by the barriers of long distances facing Australians seeking lymphoedema treatment. The Casley- Smith self-management program is practical, safe and uncomplicated thus easily adopted by therapists and patients.. The goal of this self-management regime is to maintain a high degree of independence and consists of an adapted version of manual lymphatic drainage, skin care, exercise and compression.
Casley-Smith instructors are involved in research within the field of lymphology and are continually up-dating all courses with current evidence-based information. The Casley-Smith therapeutic method remains a living and evolving process true to the vision presented by Drs Judith and John Casley-Smith.
It is this freshness in approach that is so captivating with the Casley-Smith method.
