Lymphatic Therapy is a method for treating lymphedema and other edemas. It was developed by John and Judith Casley-Smith of
Australia. The Casley-Smiths were pioneers in the field of lymphology. Their groundbreaking research included the study of
the microcirculation, use of the benzo-pyrones to treat filarial and other high protein edemas, and the development of exercise
sequences and a variation of manual lymph drainage for the treatment of lymphedema. They were the founders of the Lymphoedema
Association of Australia. John Casley-Smith died in 1997; Judith Casley-Smith resides in Adelaide, Australia.
in the Casley-Smith method of Complex Lymphatic Therapy (which is comparable to the European protocol of Complete Decongestive
Therapy) is available in the United States.
