LEVEL 1 ONLINE & LIVE WITH DENISE: Supporting best recovery after breast cancer

$240.91 excluding gst

LEVEL 1 ONLINE and LIVE will focus on learning the basic skills to provide upper body rehabilitation services for breast cancer survivors.

Learn how to improve arm range and ease of movement as well as lymphatic flow by reducing barriers at local soft tissues.

I will share the Assess, Treat and Reassess method I use in every oncology rehab appointment with my patients.

Whether it is a 20 min, 30 min or 45 min session, this method allows you to check the effectiveness of your chosen treatments with your patient immediately.

Treating these common surgical and radiotherapy impairments to mastectomy or lumpectomy will be covered:

  • Post-mastectomy & lumpectomy scars and adhesions that limit movement
  • Cording ( AWS)
  • Seroma
  • Secondary muscle bracing and scapula dysfunction


Treatment methods covered in this course:

  1. Barrier Release Method (skin adhesions, scars and muscle shortening)
  2. Low tension methods for hypertonus of shoulder muscles
  3. Adapted cupping (negative pressure)


You will receive:

  1. Access to 6 weekly live sessions* (1 hour)  in a small group, using Zoom; plus view or download the recording.
  2. A reference list of 5 key and recent articles that support upper body impairment assessment and treatment
  3. A posted goodie bag for Australian participants only: My treatment buddy + manual glass cup + silicon pad cover if you purchase your digital scales and pad.

* Dates for these sessions will be advised. The first COHORT STARTS: October 31 12.30 pm AEST

There will be no guessing about the pressure and timing of hands-on methods. Learn the light touch methods I use for the release of soft tissue barriers will be gained by you practising with a pressure sensing device at your table while attending the Zoom meetings and over the rental period of 6-8 weeks.
