A marketing project associated with her passion to raise awareness of the benefits of Pilates for those “living in a body like mine” is what ultimately led Lori Paquette to her diagnosis.
“I have good news for you,” Dr. Lindy McHutchison at Carolina Vein Center told her. “You have lipedema.”
Learning that “this was actually a thing” was liberating for Lori, who lived until her 50s not knowing “What was going on with my thighs?”
Dr. McHutchison recommended that Lori incorporate Lympha Press pneumatic compression therapy into her routine. Lori loves how it feels and especially how well it manages her swelling in humid temperatures. When visiting her cardiologist she exclaimed, “Look at my ankles!”
You’ll find yourself smiling as Lori’s infectious laugh and energy are palpable throughout the interview. You can follow her on Instagram @lip.electric.witch.
