History

Casley-Smith International (C-SI) is a non-profit organisation and represents an international group of certified Casley-Smith instructors in the Modern Treatment for Lymphoedema, based on the work of Dr John R. Casley-Smith and Dr Judith R. Casley-Smith.

Founding members of Casley-Smith International are based in Australia (C-S Aus), Israel (C-S Israel), the Netherlands (C-S NL), the United Kingdom (C-S UK) and the United States of America (C-S USA). It is anticipated that C-SI will expand over time to incorporate other countries around the world.

C-SI has representatives from each country and we meet-up regularly at conferences and via zoom. Each meeting we share new techniques skills and scientific insights based on evidence practice and current research and educational projects.  All Casley-Smith instructors, therapists and students are involved and encouraged to participate in publishing peer-reviewed articles, reviewing and contributing to books, poster presentations, webinars and Casley-Smith ambassadorship.

Our Mission

Is to ensure the worldwide delivery of consistent high-quality care for individuals living with, or at risk of lymphatic system disorders, by consolidating and further developing training in the Casley-Smith method.
