Lymph Fusion is the private, clinical practice of Clare Anvar BSc (Hons), MSc, which has been based in Matfield, Kent for 19 years. I specialise in complex disorders of the lymphatic system, which can occur naturally, due to injury, cancer treatments or other health issues; many of which are characterised by uncomfortable swelling (oedema) and have many underlying causes. Inappropriate treatments can lead to serious medical complications. There are very few, fully qualified, experienced lymphatic specialists in the UK.

I offer complete lymphoedema care for primary, secondary and venous oedemas, as well as specialist Lipoedema management. I also prepare clients for operations and provide extensive post-surgical recovery from all cancer, lipoedema, orthopaedic and vascular surgeries.

I use state-of-the-art diagnostic technology to ensure all clients are safe to treat, I deliver effective, evidenced-based therapies and provide a measure, fit and home delivery service for medical compression garments and devices.

I support my clients through difficult, emotional times to manage their symptoms more effectively and take back control of their lives. I am a registered provider for all UK insurance companies.

If You Need Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) & Cosmetic Surgical Care

Please visit my website dedicated to planning & recovery from cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries


Surgical Care

I work in conjunction with surgeons to reduce oedemas before many procedures-from open heart surgery to varicose vein removal, foot and ankle surgeries and joint replacements to lymphovenous anastomosis (LVA), micro-neurosurgery, liposuction, plus every type of cancer, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. Operations are much more straightforward if the lymphatic system is working optimally when they are undertaken. Equally, healing is much quicker if the lymphatic system can drain away all of the fluid and debris. I provide many post-surgical treatments to support the healing process and the lymphatic system to clear seromas, haematomas, axillary web syndrome, fibrosis, every sort of swelling, bruising, fibrosis and scarring to speed recovery.


Lipoedema is a much-misunderstood condition. It is thought to be genetic and, almost exclusively, affects women. It is triggered at times of hormonal fluctuation, such as puberty, pregnancy and the menopause, when an excess accumulation of rogue fat cells forms in the legs, hips and buttocks. The upper body is not affected (except for arms in some types), so the lower body is disproportionate and ‘pear-shaped’. Lipoedema actually lays down fat and makes it difficult to lose weight. Most women don't know they have it, so they struggle, not only with weight gain, but the humiliation and negative stereotypes about being fat and lazy. Many doctors have also never heard of it, although it is estimated to affect 11% of UK women.

Compression Garments

I provide a complete measurement, ordering, home delivery and fitting service. For many people, reducing the size of limbs and swollen areas, to lead normal, active lives, depends on having the correct combination of compression garments and devices to use at home. Selecting the correct size, fabric and class of compression for your individual circumstances is an art form! It can take time and trial and error to get it right, due to the exhaustive amount of products on the market. However, once the combination is right, you will be empowered to manage your condition and get on with your daily activities. I have personal relationships with many of the leading companies in the UK and extensive experience in choosing the best and most comfortable, effective options to reduce swelling and maintain improvements.

What My Clients Say About Me

Please allow me to congratulate you for the treatment of my client. The result is amazing and indeed, we were able to see and treat way more veins than we had seen on the initial scan when the oedema was still there

The Whiteley Clinic

I’ve had two MLD sessions with Clare and I feel so much better after them. My pain and swelling has decreased considerably and it has made such a difference. She’s extremely knowledgeable and professional and I can’t recommend her enough


I benefitted from the superb care I received from Clare. She used specialised drainage treatments to reduce swelling and help minimise scar tissue. Not only are her treatments fabulous, but her warm personality and caring nature and gentle approach made our sessions therapeutic both physically and mentally. Thank you


Thank you so much for your amazing care following my surgery. You are fantastic at what you do and such an amazing human being. It’s been great meeting you


 I would like to raise the exceptional quality treatment and care I’ve received with Clare Anvar at Evolve Massage. The treatment I have received over the last few weeks has been life changing and put me on a completely new route to managing my condition effectively.  She is also fantastic at the wider care and management.

Campbell, G

Thank you for all your help and advice about my nan, I truly believe you saved her life

Stevie C

Clare’s perceptive and holistic approach to massage has been enormously helpful-not only on a physical level-but also in coming to terms with my diagnosis and treatment and maintaining my mental and spiritual health

Theresa H

Clare, meeting you today has given me renewed energy; I’ve just come home and for the first time in weeks I am not all stressed and anxious. I feel so much better in myself

Jackie J

Before I met Clare, I kind of thought well that’s me now, I have had cancer and I was so frightened of my prognosis and what the future held. Clare gave me back my ‘mojo’ and now I don’t even think about what the future holds, I just live my life to the full

Tracy N

Clare is an incredibly caring and sensitive person, dedicated to her work and to helping her patients. I am sure there are many, like myself, who consider Clare to be a very special person
