Yoga for Lymph Edema

An important area to keep in mind when we’re dealing with lymphedema is the area around the armpits. And the breast tissue the best way to move lymph in this area is to elevate the chest. So we have a bolster a rolled up blanket or towel supporting the spine knees are bent. And we take the feet a little bit wider toward the outside edges of the mat. So that the lakes can just kind of rest in without any striving or effort release the low back move the hips away from the bottom of the ribs and let the arms come out then cross the right arm over and go into the left armpit. And just palpate a little bit here find out, if there are any areas that feel like they need to have a little bit more TLC. And then take your hand through the armpit and draw all of the tissue toward the center line.
