Lymphatic Self-Massage

Learn how to do the massage with a Combined Decongestive Therapist at the Lymphedema Clinic before doing it yourself at home. You can worsen your lymphedema if you do not learn how to do it the right way.

Lymphatic self-massage is a gentle massage that can help you manage your lymphedema. Doing this massage daily can help you decrease the swelling in your lower body.

After learning from a therapist, you can use the resources below to help guide your daily massages at home.
