Lymphatic Care Clinic

Introducing The Lymphatic Care Clinic (TLCC) at Whole Body Therapeutics–now serving clients in Williamsburg, VA. Please visit our location at: 1158 Professional Drive, Suite F, Williamsburg, VA. Or call: 757-221-9519.

Joy Thompson, BS, CMT, CLT, E-RYT, has opened The Lymphatic Care Clinic (TLCC) within Whole Body Therapeutics. The primary focus is on the treatment and care of Lymphedema and Lipedema, however, we offer many services for post-surgery clients or anyone needing a lymphatic boost or detox.

The clinic provides the following services:

  • MLD – manual lymphatic drainage – a gentle, hands-on technique to move fluid. For many clients with swelling, or edema, this treatment is all that is needed. Persistent or lingering swelling, or lymphedema, may involve a more detailed treatment approach. See the FAQs below for a complete list of issues that respond well to MLD treatment.
  • CDP – complete decongestive physiotherapy. This is a safe, non-invasive, reliable treatment that has been proven to provide long-term results for both primary and secondary lymphedema. CDP consists of the following components:
    • MLD
    • Compression Bandaging for upper and lower extremeties
    • Skin Care
    • Appropriate Exercise
    • Education for Client and/or caregivers on diet, maintenance of plateau levels, and other appropriate treatment options.
  • Garment Fitting, which includes measuring and assistance with ordering of needed garment(s), whether customized or off-the-shelf.
  • Education – for patients and caregivers on the following topics:
    • Appropriate Exercise
    • Skin Care
    • Maintenance of Plateau Levels
    • Compression Garments and Pumps

Price for Services
Clients often come to us for MLD, compression bandaging and more because it is medically necessary. They turn to us because they’ve run out of insurance options, or their insurance does not cover therapy in the first place. Knowing this, our rates for any service done within The Lymphatic Care Clinic (TLCC) have been adjusted to match the average co-pay.

Initial Evaluation for Lymphema or Lipedema Treatment or Swelling Post-Surgery:

For clients seeking lymphatic care at TLCC, a complimentary consultation is provided prior to the start of treatment. This can be scheduled either separately, or combined with another service. The goal of the evaluation is to establish a treatment plan of action, including number of visits, necessary care and cost estimate.
