Leg massages

Postby panther73 » Tue Apr 05, 2011 9:23 pm

Hello,

I have Lympedema in my right foot and it stops at the ankle. I've tried numerous massages I found online but I'm not sure if I am doing them correctly. Can you recommend a good video or document (with pictures) as to the proper massage techniques for this type of Lymphedema?

Thanks,
Panther

Hey Panther

Geezzzzzz.....there use to be several, but I couldn't find any of them.

However, this site does have a video online you can watch:

BTW, there are also foot compression garments available too.

Thanks, Pat! You gave me some a while back but as you said they tend to change.
