Learn an effective way to treat patients with lymphedema, chronic venous edema, post-op swelling, or post-traumatic swelling, and how to enhance wound healing.

Complex 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.

Training 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.

DeCourcy Squire, PT, CLT-LANA, CI-CS, was certified as an instructor by Judith Casley-Smith in 1998 and has been teaching these courses since 1999.
