Who we are:
Breast Rehabilitation & Lymphedema Healing Center was founded and developed by Kelli Anderson, OTR/L, CLT, CHT, and a breast cancer survivor, who, prior to her diagnosis, had already been operating a successful Occupational Therapy hand clinic, Progressive Hand Therapy. We are a team of highly skilled professionals, including Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapy Assistants, and Massage Therapists, who provide a unique healing environment for patients undergoing treatment for, or recovering from, breast cancer and/or Lymphedema diagnosis. The therapists received their certifications in Lymphedema treatment through the Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy.
The Breast Rehabilitation & Healing Center (BHRC) provides proven clinical treatments and enlightened integrative modalities for optimal healing after mastectomy, lumpectomy, and breast augmentation or reduction. We provide a unique healing environment for patients undergoing or recovering from breast cancer treatment.
Breast Healing and Recovery After Surgery
Mastectomy and other types of breast surgery impair function of the upper extremity. Weakness and muscle tightness, called disuse atrophy, develop when patients don’t use their arms during recovery from surgery. Medical research indicates that women significantly benefit from upper extremity rehabilitation after mastectomy or breast surgery. This specialized therapy restores range of motion, strength and function, allowing patients to avoid upper extremity impairments.
BRHC completed the healing process of my breast cancer. I had issues with the range of motion in my arms and was extremely uncomfortable post-op. I was blown away with the level of care that I received at BRHC. Not only did they restore my range of motion, but also comforted me on an emotional level every step of the way. It felt more like going to a spa than rehabilitation! It’s truly an oasis for breast cancer patients.
Because of BRHC, my life has been given back to me. For that, I will be forever grateful!
BRHC staff have made me feel like my problem is their problem and they are not going to let it continue. For the first time in well over a decade, I am hopeful. I truly believe this facility is going to be the answer to my prayer for mobility. I may not need the "Disability Placard" that I'm applying for!
