At Pink Ribbon,  I get to help women and men feel, heel and be better.  Whether you need lymphedema treatment, post operative care, or assistance with overall general well-being.

My story:

ONCOLOGY

While working with cancer patients, I became aware that many felt "alone" in their new, lifelong maintenance programs.   Often patients requested to come back to clinic after discharge for the "massage" used by therapists to reduce swelling. 

I have worked closely with other Rehab and Lymphatic Therapists, Oncologists and Integrated Therapies to create a specialized massage for cancer survivors affected by lymphatic damage. 

Through this collaboration, a specialized Oncology Lymphatic Massage program was created and offered to MD Anderson patients in Gilbert, AZ.  After relocating I now offer this service in the West Valley.
