We are seeking woman between the ages of 18 and 75 years, who live in Sydney (including greater western and southern sydney), to participate in a study examining the role of acupuncture in reducing symptoms of lymphoedema which has developed after breast cancer treatment.

This is a collaborative research study undertaken by Associate Professor Caroline Smith, and Professor Paul de Souza from the University of Western Sydney, Dr Marie Pirotta from the University of Melbourne, and Professor Sharon Kilbreath from the University of Sydney.

If you are interested in learning more about the study please contact Prof. Caroline Smith on 02 4620 3777 or or alternatively contact research assistant Cristina at

Many Thanks!
