Part of that self care includes using a hand held percussion massager, to help break up fibrotic tissue after I’ve warmed up the tissue (by stretching, lymphatic yoga poses, WBV, and pneumatic compression pumping). You can learn more about my full routine in this prior blog post. https://lipedemafitness.blogspot.com/2020/06/when-i-wake-up-day-in-life-of-lipedema.html
After I’m done with the massager, I do self MLD (manual lymphatic drainage) and apply a good lotion before putting on my graduated compression garments every morning.
Video on how I use the massager can be found on my Lipedema Fitness YouTube Channel: https://youtu.be/E5dAMAzKlrE
