Whether you do laps, water exercise, walk or just hang out, the water offers incredible benefits and relief for lymphedema.

No compression necessary

  • Water provides natural compression. As you move, the water helps stimulate lymph movement throughout your entire body. Ahhhh!

Take some deep breaths

  • Further boost your lymphatic system by adding in a few deep belly breaths
  • Deep breathing is the body’s natural way to help clear out the lymphatics

Deep dive

  • Try a few dives down as far as you can go in the deep end. I find the increased pressure plus the deep breaths I take once I return to the surface have an amazing effect

Don’t just swim in it, remember to drink water too

  • Just not pool water! 

Love your lymphatic system, it’s the only one you’ve got!
