This technique uses light touch to gently move excess fluid and waste out of the tissues and back into the lymphatic vessels.  It also promotes blood flow to the deep and superficial veins. This type of treatment does not feel  like a traditional massage and should feel more like your skin is being gently brushed with a light touch of the fingers. It is the primary treatment modality for those suffering from lymph edema due to:

  • Primary lymphedema
  • Secondary Lymphedema
  • Lipedema
  • Edema post surgery
  • Edema post injury
  • Chronic Venous insufficiency
  • Edema and swelling in the hands and feet due to pregnancy
  • Carpal Tunnel due to swelling of the wrist in pregnancy
  • Postpartum swelling and edema
