Swelling can stop a fun San Diego vacation
in it's tracks!
When I am on vacation, I always end up trying to jam in a week's worth of activities into only a few days. San Diego in particular is a hard city to vacation in - how can we visit Balboa Park AND the Beach AND learn how to stand up paddleboard AND ride bicycles around the bay AND swim in the ocean AND watch the surfers AND try out fish tacos? If there are kids on the trip, it might extend into Legoland and Disneyland, which means time in a car and walking around all day in the park.
The result: just tired feet if we're lucky, but more often - swollen feet, legs and knees.
On vacation in San Diego? If you have an old injury or a mild case of lymphedema after cancer surgery you may find that the increased lifting, walking and cabin pressurization that comes along with a vacation can cause swelling in the arms and legs. A swollen leg or knee can mean skipping spending time with family members or not participating in many of the touristy things that make vacation so memorable.
I'm Kathleen Lisson, a Board Certified massage therapist practicing in San Diego. I specialize in a type of massage called Manual Lymphatic Drainage, which reduces swelling from lymphedema or after surgery or injury.
It's best to search for a person who has experience in using Manual Lymphatic Drainage, and ideally choosing a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) if you have or are at risk for lymphedema.
