Healthy-Steps, Moving you to better health with the Lebed Method is a therapeutic, evidence-based exercise program originally designed for persons with or at risk for lymphedema. Because it is done slowly and smoothly, it is attractive to almost anyone with various chronic conditions. Not only does it improve the lymphatic system, often called the immune system, but it improves balance and flexibility. The program can be done on land, seated or standing, and in the water. Participants are encouraged to stop or slow down when tired and only do movements that do not create pain. Healthy-Steps is designed to be fun while improving overall health. For more information, please visit our website at www.gohealthysteps.com and attend our virtual class through Smith Center for Healing and the Arts.

 

About Bonnie Vermillion

I am a Cancer survivor/thriver since 1998 and have had lymphedema since 2002. I initially had so much trouble finding information on lymphedema that I went online and found an exercise program that was developed to maintain lymphedema. I became an instructor, then trainer, and finally acquired the program in 2014. I currently teach classes in central Virginia. I’m also a regional coordinator for Chronic Disease Self Management workshops, so actively work with small groups of participants for them to self-manage their chronic conditions. I am also a volunteer Ombudsman with the local Agency on Aging and a volunteer with the Alzheimer’s Association as a support group facilitator and speaker.
