Oedema Massage

Oedema massage is often helpful in reducing oedema(fluid build up) because it stimulates blood flow, fluid movement and lymphatic system function (detoxing our bodies). Oedema massage strokes are often made in upward motions toward the heart to encourage the lymph movement. Oedema is abnormal fluid accumulation in the spaces between the cells of body tissues, causing swelling and pain. Mostly found in the legs and feet, where it is called peripheral, fluid retention can also accumulate in other areas of the body.
