Hello.  I’m Lin Coleman.

With over 40 years of experience as a nationally certified lymphedema therapist, I’ve dedicated my career to helping individuals navigate the challenges of living with lymphedema after breast cancer.

I received my certification from two leading lymphedema clinics in Europe and had the honor of developing four hospital lymphedema programs, including Stanford Research Hospital in Northern California.

Today, I work in outpatient physical therapy providing a range of lymphedema care services, from manual lymphatic drainage to kinesiotaping, garments fitting, and more.

My deepest desire is to share a simple program with you that can make your life more manageable and functional, regardless of where you are on your journey.

I believe that we are more than our pathologies, problems, or challenges, and my goal is to empower you to feel better and more whole, for yourself, your family, and your life.
