Do your feet swell, but having them up all night doesn’t make a difference? Do your extremities tend to swell when up in an airplane? Are you a cancer survivor, or have had major surgery? Can you leave an indentation in your skin with your finger? Or have you had constant swelling most of your life?
Any of these situations could mean you are experiencing, or may experience, lymphedema. The lymph system is part of the circulatory system, but the heart only pumps the blood, not lymph fluid. Manual Lymphedema Therapy combines, movement, gentle massage, and resistive wrapping to bring your lymphedema under control. It is gentle, non-evasive, therapy during which some of my patients simply fall asleep!
