TRAINER OF INSTRUCTORS

Hi, my name is Janet Capstick and I am an experienced, qualified, professional Body and HealthCare Therapist with special interest in Cancer and Dementia patients, their Carers and the Elderly. I have an established Complementary Therapy Practice called ”The Timeless Partnership” and work along side my co-director Jacky Buller. We receive NHS referrals for our CT service to help cancer patients and carers. Clients can be referred at any stage in their cancer journey - from initial diagnosis to full recovery or palliative care. Working along side the cancer patient has highlighted to me the many emotional and physical problems associated with lymphodema and the need for much more lymphodema awareness. As soon as I heard about the Lebed method - Focus on Healing I knew it would be of benefit for all my clients. I am very excited to be able to offer Lebed exercise classes at several locations in Worcestershire, Shropshire and Birmingham. My company also provides group based complementary therapy sessions for Help the Aged and The Alzheimer Society as well as providing therapeutic massage for residents and staff at Residential Care and Nursing homes. I believe The Lebed Method is an excellent and fun way of providing the opportunity for The Timeless Partnership to achieve our aims in helping all our clients, regardless of physical ability, age or ethnicity with both their physical and emotional needs to gain a better quality of life.

Bonnie Vermillion, CLMT

TRAINER OF INSTRUCTORS

I live in the quickly growing rural county of Culpeper, VA just south of the Metropolitan D.C. area. I've worked in the retirement field with assisted living senior adults for over 15 years. In 1998 I was diagnosed with breast cancer, had a mastectomy, and was very fortunate to make a rapid recovery. I developed Lymphedema in 2002.While researching the condition I located The Lebed Method webpage and did the exercise program from the CD. I was trained as an instructor in 2007 by Sherry Lebed Davis. I now teach the aqua, seated, and standing version of the exercise. I became a CLMT in 2010. Thriving is great!
