A Special Retreat for Men & Women Living With Lymphedema
May 23-25, 2016
Join us for three days devoted to men and women living with lymphedema. This retreat, offered at no cost to participants through the generosity of our Retreat Sponsors and Harmony Hill Retreat Center, is designed to educate, recharge and inspire those who are dealing with lymphedema and send them home with self-care skills allowing them to live well with lymphedema.
The 2014 and 2015 Lymphedema Retreats, sponsored by the Northwest Lymphedema Center, in partnership with Harmony Hill Retreat Center, were very successful. This is our 3rd annual event to include a blend of lymphedema education, self-care tips and healing in a supportive environment.
The Northwest Lymphedema Center believes that those living with a diagnosis of lymphedema need access to all the tools available for their successful journey from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.
When you attend, plan to:
- Discover the role your education plays in the prevention and management of lymphedema
- Focus on your individual needs
- Learn stress-reduction skills and practice guided imagery
- Experience Manual Lymphatic Drainage therapy
- Attend support group sessions to share and learn with others
- Review compression garments and why they are needed
- Create an advocacy network
- Craft a self-care journal
- And much more!
Held in Union, Washington, the campus at Harmony Hill Retreat Center overlooks Hood Canal with a panoramic view of the snow-capped Olympic Mountains.

You will enjoy comfortable rooms, delicious healthy meals, and the opportunity to get peace from the natural setting, gardens and trails.
