TESTIMONIALS

Since finding out i had primary lymphoedema in my left leg 7 years ago i had worried and been unsure of exactly what it is and how i can make it better and i felt scared.  My mum found out about Helen and i went for my first MLD about a year ago.  Not only did the massage help (i went for a few treatments) she is also very knowledgeable and gave me advice, and most importantly for me, she made me feel less terrified and gave me confidence.  Once i return to Croydon from my travels i hope to have regular treatments with her.

In the past I had a wide range of therapy and manipulation on my back, but nothing has been as effective as the treatment I have been receiving from Helen Fox, who is based on Harley Street. She has a great, cheerful manner and is a highly trained expert in her field . Thank you for the excellent treatment!

I have been seeing Helen for a while with severe Lymphodema and she has really helped with the swelling and hardness of my leg. It makes my Mobility much improved and relieves the heaviness of the whole leg. I've also had acupuncture for severe back pain and sciatica and this has helped so greatly. Highly recommend Helen.

In May of this year I had Vaser Lipselection to my inner knees. My surgeon recommended I wear a compression garment for 6 weeks and have 3-5 sessions of MLD (Manual Lymphatic Drainage). Helen was recommended to me and I am so grateful she was.

As well as bruising and swelling I experienced numbness and hardening (fibrous tissue) around the area. Not only was Helen professional and thorough at recognising these areas and working with them, but also reassuring regarding my concerns. I found that with each session the tightness and discomfort began to ease and the hardness, which I thought would never go, softened and the area now looks completely natural.

Helen also made many useful suggestions such as using a trampette to improve lymphatic drainage and using a massage ball to help reduce the hard tissue. The results are fantastic and I still hardly recognise my lovely new knees sometimes.

I'm now having MLD sessions with Helen for treatment to my calves and ankles. I'm bruised and swollen and compressed up to the hilt but I know what to expect, what to do and what the results will be thanks to Helen.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I had cancer of the throat and Helen treat me with MLD and acupuncture. Both had a marked and almost immediate effect - for the better! My swellings round my throat has drastically reduced as a result of the MLD.
