About Tamryn Riemann

My approach to care: I have served on the OT Association of South Africa’s exco committee as well as the Lymphoedema Association of South Africa exco as president in recent years. I have a passion for upper limb rehabilitation with a special interest in oncology and lymphoedema. 


I am a family person who enjoys spending time with my husband and 5-year-old daughter. We enjoy the beach, open water swimming, stand up paddling and kayaking. We also enjoy walking in the mountains and occasionally go rock climbing.
