Lymphedema is a painful chronic condition known for causing swelling in the arms, legs and upper body. In recent years, research has been underway at MSK to explore the safe use of integrative therapies, specifically acupuncture and massage, for controlling swelling and other signs of lymphedema. This program will highlight how patients affected by lymphedema, who have completed physical therapy, can include integrative treatments into their care plan to improve daily functioning. A review of the latest research will be presented followed by a question and answer session.
