Edema is a very common problem among pregnant women, but it can set into anyone who has problems with fluid getting trapped in the body tissues. The human body is designed to eliminate excess fluid, but there are a number of things that can cause water retention and swelling: kidney disease, liver damage, and heart disease. Massage for edema is one of the best ways to alleviate your swelling problems.
The benefits of massage therapy are incredible and can range from stimulating the lymph system, lowering the blood sugar levels, to removing toxins from the body. Massage improves the blood circulation in the body and reduces the ill effects developed due to diabetes such as the hardening of arteries.
