About Kirtida

Lymphoedema is a condition that mainly affects the limbs though it can also affect other areas of the body. This can be caused by cancer treatment such as surgery and radiotherapy to the lymph nodes. This condition can also be due a congenital problem of the lymphatics, which can be a very debilitating condition, if not managed and treated correctly.

Kirtida is also trained in manual lymphatic drainage both with the Casley Smith and Leduc techniques of drainage. This is widely recognised and it is an effective method of management for lymphoedema. Unfortunately, there is limited availability nationally of manual lymphatic drainage due to lack of practitioners and expertise.

Whilst Kirtida specialises in lymphoedema, she also continues to work in breast oncology and currently runs the breast family history service, looking at evaluating the risk of breast cancer in families in addition to the genetic risk level.

Kirtida is proud to host her clinics at the Good Health Centre for people who have lymphoedema due to cancer treatments.

If you feel that you may need any lymphoedema treatment you can contact Kirtida directly for an initial consultation on Kirtidapatel01@gmail.com or 07802431434.

Kirtida is recognised by various health insurance companies, please note you would require a GP or a consultant referral in order to gain treatment from Kirtida.

I have used the Good Health centre over many years. Seb, one of the osteopaths, helps me maintain a quality of life that I wouldn't otherwise enjoy. He is always patient and kind, and treats me with respect. The receptionists are always cheerful, and make one feel welcome. I would highly recommend.

I've been struggling with persistent pain in top of the hamstring/glute, for nearly one year. I tried the standard physio, rest, DYI solutions and strengthening exercises and none of them helped me completely. Eventually I went to the clinic and discussed the problem with the osteopath and in 3 sessions my leg is nearly 100% healthy again. Really impressive outcome and great service

I've been coming to the Good Health Centre on and off for my back issues for years. They offer so many different treatments. For me, I am currently going for a sciatica issue and Yanis is a magician! I travel from London to see him as he always gets to the root of the problem and does his upmost to assist and sort out the issue as well as updating me on everything he is doing and why. For me, he is fantastic and one of the reasons I come back time and time again when I need to. He is a savior to me!

I’ve been a client at The Good Health Clinic for a year since Josh McCollum.moved there from a local clinic to where I live. I had no hesitation at all in following him there which involves me undertaking a 30 mile round journey. I first met Josh in August 2021 following a major break in my ankle. He has been an absolutely vital to me as I built up a trustworthy group of therapists to enable my safe rehabilitation. I can’t recommend Josh enough for his kindness, understanding, care and expertise in aiding my recovery and now helping to maintain my recovery. Josh, I can never ever thank you enough 🤩

Good Health Centre has had a huge impact on my career as a dancer. I visit Josh regularly for osteopathy treatment to support my physical training and to improve my overall awareness of my body. It has really helped me to overcome and keep on top of injuries and any pains which come with the demands of a physically challenging job. I couldn’t recommend Josh and the Good Health Centre enough!
