Exercises for improved lymph flow

Always train with your compression aid and ideally 3-5 times a day for 5-10 minutes each. Please make sure that the exercises are performed slowly and in a controlled manner and that you do not overexert yourself. The exercises should not cause you pain or muscle ache.
