Support Organization

The Lymphology Association of North America is commonly known as L.A.N.A (Lymphology means the study of the lymphatic system.)

This is a voluntary professional organization for lymphedema therapists with the objectives and purposes that include:

  • To promote standards for management of individuals with Lymphedema and or related disorders,
  • To establish and maintain certification for medical professionals who provide lymphedema services, and
  • To promote the awareness and science of lymphology.

This non-profit corporation is composed of healthcare professionals who are experienced in the field of lymphology and lymphedema including:

  • Physicians,
  • Nurses,
  • Massage therapists,
  • Physical therapists, and
  • Occupational therapists

Although eligible for LANA certification, many therapists do not complete this voluntary step.  Membership in this organization, and taking part in their testing program, is strictly voluntary.
