Aideen is a wealth of knowledge! I appreciate her time and willingness to share info about managing lymphedema, keeping stress low, and sharing yoga practices to live your BEST life. You can’t go wrong by hearing what she has to say, highly recommended! If you have lymphedema, she can definitely help guide you. Easy to understand, friendly, a great resource.

Aideen is a true professional in her field and I can definitely recommend her with confidence.
I just want to highlight how incredible this course is! As a cancer survivor with full lymph node removal, I am high risk for lymphoedema, which I have already had the pleasure of experiencing! Aideen has taken a lot of care to produce a beautiful and an easy to understand, detailed guide, with videos which is exactly what I love! I never knew about home-care techniques and they are fantastic, which I have been doing and thankfully no lymphoedema currently which is great! (more about the course here).
After about 21/2 years of being about a stone (14lbs/6kgs) over my favoured healthy weight, and having upped my walking – but not really changed much else – I decided that I needed a) something different activity wise and b) support and accountability to get going. Having known Aideen for a couple of years as an amazing yoga teacher, I knew she had trained as a PT and felt that her style would be able to accommodate my reluctance while still giving me the nudge that I needed to ‘get on it’ with regards to changing my body fitness.
Yes, there are a lot of free things out there for this, but I knew I needed the 1-2-1 support and training for a few key reasons:
1) So that I knew I was doing the exercises correctly, I don’t want to damage my body with bad form
2) So that I had a variety of exercises that were right for me (and so that I wouldn’t get bored!)
3) I needed to feel accountable to someone else to make me do it.
SO – I decided to do an 8 week online ‘Kickstarter’ course with Aideen to get me going, and see how I went. It was great. We met once a week online for our 1-2-1 session and then I reported in when I had done my other sessions through the week.
Not only did Aideen have seemingly infinite patience with my reluctance and sarcasm around doing some of the exercises – but guided me in to stretching myself (in more ways than one) and within 4 weeks the difference in strength and ability was already obvious. After the 8 weeks I felt confident that I would continue and had enough variety and awareness to keep myself going. 4 weeks later and I’m still doing a weight resistance session three times a week, I’ve upped my personal challenges – and even bought a pair of dumbbell weights! I feel stronger, am increasing tone and losing a few pounds and have kept momentum.
If you’re thinking about getting yourself a PT I highly recommend Aideen. If you’re unsure as to whether it works over the internet – well – I’m still going! I’d also say that doing the strength/PT work alongside her yoga class would be a perfect combination.
Online MLD consultation: I found the session to be extremely beneficial and informative. Great introduction to the management of lymphoedema. Individualised client-centered approach was used to empower and educate for self management. I would highly recommend Aideen for practical evidence based information that you can incorporate into your daily schedule.
If it weren’t for all your hard work my legs would still be swollen.
I had a second session of back, neck and shoulders massage with Aideen. She is the best! Great massage in nice atmosphere, very calming and relaxing music. Aideen knows what she is doing, she is very professional and talented. I can highly recommend Aideen.
Aideen is very knowledgeable and attentive to the client’s needs. She’s also a great person!
Highly recommended! I had several great sessions with Aideen for my tendons and muscles problems. Very helpful!
