Due to the rapid spread of Covid-19 we are sad to announce The Lighter Touch has needed to temporarily close its doors. We take your health and the coping ability of the NHS very seriously and aim to do our bit to flatten that curve.
We are unable to offer any treatments until the Government state it is safe once more.
We'd like to thank you all for your continual support and ask you to keep in contact via email/text/phone.
This way we can help advise if you show signs of difficulty.
Video calls will be available should your lymphoedema give you problems.
Stay Well. Stay Safe
