About 100 million people around the world have lymphedema; however, a large number do not have access to any kind of treatment. The current study reports on a technique of lymphatic self-drainage. The method consists of utilizing rods, bars, or any cylindrical object that rolls smoothly over the skin area to be drained. During this gliding motion a pressure of around 30 to 40 mm Hg should be exerted by the patient. The classical concepts of lymphatic drainage should be followed. This new method was subjected to a lymphoscintigraphic, anthropometric, and clinical evaluation demonstrating its usefulness in treating lymphedema.
