Stress Reduction for Lymphedema
Available in Paperback and Kindle on Amazon
Stress Reduction for Lymphedema takes a look at published research on mind-body practices that may reduce the negative effects of stress in people with lymphedema, with step-by-step instructions so you can try many of the practices yourself or with a caregiver or loved one.
Stress reduction activities include:
* Breathwork protocols recommended for people with lymphedema
* Mindfulness exercises from a lymphedema program in India
* Holistic practices including acupuncture for people with lymphedema and a progressive muscle relaxation routine that may improve the effects of decongestive therapy
* Movement-based activities like qi gong and taiso for upper limb lymphedema and yoga for upper and lower limb lymphedema
