Welcome to Lymph Movement Studio

 

Lymph Movement Studio was created by our Director – Kylie Bradley – who had a vision to provide a space for people with fluid-related issues to receive treatment, while also offering a supportive environment for practitioners working in this field to come together.

You can receive hands-on treatment with therapists or compression therapy in our compression suite in a safe, welcoming environment.

Kylie Bradley - Clinical Nutritionist, Health Coach and Remedial Lymphatic Therapist

Hi! My name is Kylie Bradley, and I’m passionate about helping people with lymphatic issues to manage their condition. Why? Well, I can relate to your journey because I’ve been there.

In my late 20’s, I was suddenly diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. My treatment included chemotherapy & radiotherapy, but luckily no surgical intervention was required. At the time, I was never told about the risks of developing lymphoedema. I also had no idea about how nutrition and self-care would need to become a part of my daily life… for the rest of my life!

During my cancer treatment, I was re-introduced to massage, and the healing benefits it provides. This put me on a career changing path that led me to become a remedial massage therapist… and a bit of a lymphatic’s “nerd”!
Leaving the hospitality industry in 2008, I set up my first remedial massage practice – Hand2body Massage Therapy – helping a range of people including those with lymphatic issues. Starting my own diet overhaul led me to further study in clinical nutrition and health coaching, so I could holistically help other people on their road to recovery.

I have been assisting people post-cancer and with lymphatic issues for over 15 years. If you’re ready to make the necessary changes to manage your health & wellbeing, I would love to chat with you about how I can assist you to develop a healthy routine that is sustainable and suitable for YOU!

Kim Bolto - Remedial Massage Therapist

Kim is a Remedial Massage Therapist with 20+ years of clinical experience in private practice. Her interest in lymphatics began when she received Manual Lymph Drainage on a wrist injury in 2004 and was stunned by its effectiveness after one treatment.

This led her to undertake further training in the Dr Vodder Method of Manual Lymph Drainage, including Lymphoedema training in 2018. Following completion of the full Therapist Training Program, she also completed the Medical Taping Concept Lymph Taping Course and took on the role of course organiser, coordinating multiple Vodder and Lymph Taping courses in South Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria between 2018 and 2020.

Kim has continued to perfect her technique and gain additional learning through completing the Advanced Neck and Face course, the Advanced Body course and Certificate in Applied MLD as well as Review classes and additional courses in kinesiology taping, most recently completing the Neuromuscular Taping Rehabilitation and Therapy Certificate.

In 2020 Kim was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her diagnosis gave her a new perspective and insight allowing her to bring a deeper level of understanding to her treatments particularly for others affected by cancer. She also became very interested in wound healing, scar work and lasers.

Kim was accepted into the Teacher Training Program in 2022 and became a Certified Level 1 Practical Teacher in 2023 after completing her exams at the Dr Vodder Academy International in Walchsee, Austria. She feels privileged to be able to share this method with other therapists.

Her focus in clinical practice is on offering pain-free remedial treatment to her clients. She enjoys introducing people to MLD and converting them away from the “no pain, no gain” way of thinking toward being advocates for MLD and pain-free treatments.
