Silke Thompson, LMT, CDT

Originally from Mannheim, Germany, I received training as a medical assistant and completed 2,200 hours at the School for Physical Therapy and Massage Therapy.  In addition, I was certified in Manual Lymph Drainage at the Foeldi Clinic in Hinterzarten, Germany.

I further my training through the German Society of Lymphology attending workshops for wound care, lymphatic taping, axillary web syndrome, osteopathic fascia technique, deep oscillation and compression garment fitting. 

I began my career as a lymphatic therapist in 1994 in Germany.  After moving to the USA in 2009, I took a sabbatical for 10 years to home school my children.  While living in Colorado, I became certified as a Yin Yoga Instructor. 

Because of my love of exploring healing modalities, I have also received training in Thai Yoga Massage, Thai Acupressure and Ayurvedic Herbal Stamp Massage.  Before moving to Arizona, to become part of the team at An Oasis of Healing, I received the basic and advanced training in Electro- Lymphatic Drainage therapy. 

I enjoy spending time outdoors with my children and listening to my son play the piano.  We also enjoy preparing meals together and spending time as a family.
