Location

We want Mandurah Oedema Clinic to be a welcoming home from home, not an impersonal clinical environment. We believe our clients want comfortable, familiar surroundings and that feeling at home during treatment is a big part of successfully managing oedema. Our clinic is set on Waterside Canals in a refurbished & specially redesigned home providing comfortable treatment rooms, a lounge waiting room with a library and purpose built, heated pool for hydrotherapy. We are on the water, close to town but away from the noise & foot traffic of a busy main street. We have on-site, gated parking for up to 6 cars and are signposted with a blue information sign from the corner of Leslie Street.

Treatment Rooms

We have two private, well fitted treatment rooms with electric/hydraulic beds where our therapists have access to a range of oedema equipment. With state of the art bioimpedance Spectroscopy equipment, compression pumps, garments, lasers and lymphscanner, we are able to offer treatment & advice on all aspects of oedema.
Mandurah Oedema Clinic was set up with the aim of providing a centre of excellence for oedema treatment in Mandurah & the Peel region.
