Toning tables are fantastic for lymphatic system and that provide gentle excercise keeping the lymph flowing. i was able to reduce swelling

use them for over 20 years....there are 7 beds and made by shapemaster. these used to be very popular years ago for everyone but don't think it has been recognised by the lymph profession......although i stress the reason i manage my legs is due to the tables, this was proved when the toning tables in my area closed and my legs became very swollen again.

  • Interesting, thanks, Chilton. I'll check them out & see what I can find out about them. U take care !

  • My cousin swears by toning tables especially for those of us who have arthritis too. Can't find any in my area though.

  • Thanks for this really interesting suggestion!

  • I too use toning tables 2-3 times a week and have found them very helpful. I also have weekly MLD massage privately which has also helped a great deal. I was measured for and given hold up stockings which I could not get on with as they kept turning over at the top but now wear toeless knee highs (also measured for) which are very comfortable. I was removed from the Lymphoedema clinic's books locally because I was having treatment from a private practitioner even though I would not have got any such treatment from them. I am 69 and have probably had lipoedema since I was about 7 although was only diagnosed 2 years ago because I referred myself to a lymphoedma practitioner. It seemed to have turned to lipo-lymphoedema after being put on beta blockers-which immediately made the legs much worse. I am now off these.

    With a weight loss programme-I have lost 5 stone since Jan 2016, regular MLD, regular toning tables and more walking (made possible by the improvement) I feel I am managing the disease well, espewcially as I had to have a full hysterectomy last August for cancer of the womb-but had no ill effects in relation to the lipo-lymphoedema.
