A beauty therapist I know gave me a body
brush. She said she used it for lymphodema
massage. Gentle upwards circular movements. It makes sense as the lymph system is very close to the surface and MLD
is a very gentle massage as opposed to deep massage. So it's something we can do more easily ourselves.
I've tried it and it's very stimulating and leaves my skin refreshed and tingly. I think it improves the lymph circulation in my 'big leg'
from primary lymphodema. Asked my mothers' LD nurse ( we have primary inherited LD) and she says she has heard of it
and ' it works' Has anyone else tried it?
Does anyone know of any studies or instructions?
