    the day is evening oedema of the legs It is the difference between the fluid volume in the legs in the morning and the evening Study 1 In this study measurements of the circumference and the volume of leg segments in the morning and in the evening on 5 consecutive days were taken On the first day the measurements were done without compression and on the following days stockings with a pressure ranging from 8 to 40mmHg were applied randomly The results showed an increase in circumference and volume in the foot and ankle in the evening after the first day without wearing the stockings When individuals were wearing stockings with a compression between 8 and 22mmHg no increase was observed in the evening and when individuals were wearing stockings with a compression pressure of 30 40mmHg the stockings produced a significant volume reduction in comparison with the morning measurements It concluded that evening oedema develops especially in the foot and ankle and compression garments with a pressure as low as 8mmHg are able to prevent leg swelling In effect a light compression stockings should not only be considered for long distance travels but also during daily activity in a sitting or standing position Hirai M Nukumizu Y Kidokoro H Hayakawa N Iwata H Nishikimi N Sho K Tsujisaka T Komoatsubara R Skin Res Technol 2006 12 1 32 35 Study 2 The study consisted in measuring the volume of both lower legs in volunteers working in a sitting or standing position in the morning and 7 hours later The subjects wore knee high stockings of different compression levels on one leg The results showed that a significant reduction of evening swelling could be achieved with all stockings in pressure ranging higher than 11mmHg The highest degree of subjective comfort was reported for the 18mmHg stockings The study concluded that light calf length compression stockings are able to reduce or totally prevent evening oedema and may therefore be recommended for people with a profession connected with long periods of sitting or standing Partsch H Winiger J Lun B Dermatol Surg 2004 30 737 43 Back to the top Wearing high compression stockings is difficult Should wearing a high compression garment be your problem you will be happy to know that two stockings of lower compression can be worn A study conducted by Cornu Thenard et al confirms that combining two stockings of lower pressure would have the same effect because the total compression represents the sum of the individual pressures of each stocking In fact we already know that multilayer bandaging does exactly that Back to the top Who can benefit from wearing a compression garment Anyone experiencing mild to severe swelling discomfort or discoloration of the extremity Individuals suffering from venous insufficiency i e varicose veins spider veins venous oedema deep vein thrombosis phlebitis thrombophlebitis People with a family history of venous insufficiency showing signs and symptoms Lymphoedema patients Pregnant mothers Anyone sitting or standing for extended periods of

    you please advise at least 24 hours in advance should you need to cancel your appointment This simple procedure should leave sufficient time for someone else to have the opportunity to book for a massage Jeanine Back to the top What is in a massage Although it seems pretty obvious what a massage consists of it is not necessarily so to everyone as there is a wide variety of massage techniques A remedial massage can begin with a basic technique called relaxation massage Why relaxation would you say It is because stress can be the root of many problems affecting any part of the body and can be caused by A combination of family devotion work obligation and social commitment Living with a chronic medical condition such as high blood pressure or diabetes which demands lifestyle adjustments Muscles involved in repeated movements for instance moving a mouse or looking at a computer screen or painting the home Muscles working overtime to compensate for structural imbalance Muscles compromised by a poor posture Deep tissue strokes and cross fibre techniques may increase the blood circulation to the area and separate the muscle fibres Ischemic compression is used to remove trigger points Myofascial release to decrease tension in the fascia covering the muscle and stretch it Lymphatic drainage massage to assist in removing excess fluid in the tissue Muscle energy technique aims to increase the range of movement in the joints Back to the top Facts Do you know that An adult s blood vessel network can be approximately 100 000 miles long On average the body has 5 litres of blood continually traveling through it A normal and healthy blood pressure is around 120 80 The threats can be real and often just perceived In our modern daily life how often do we dread phone calls dread driving during peak hour dread changing hats constantly from being a professional to being a housewife and a mother or a father The effects of stress are cumulative and prolonged stress responses can keep the blood pressure raised To top it up we live through different phases in life which are considered major stresses such as marriage divorce pregnancy death of a loved one moving house changing job and retirement for example More and more evidence suggest that a regular massage can decrease the cortisol levels and increase the serotonin levels which is found to be essential for relaxation sleep and concentration and lower the blood pressure In fact a study by Hernandez Reif T Field et al from the Touch Research Institute claims that massage therapy decreases diastolic blood pressure anxiety and cortisol levels in adults with hypertension The diastolic blood pressure is the measure of blood pressure in the arteries occurring when the heart relaxes between beats Back to the top About Lymphoedema Journal of Lymphoedema October 2006 vol 1 no 1 www journaloflymphoedema com Snippets from Journal of Lymphoedema October 2006 vol 1 no 1 Influence of breathing on lymphatic drainage debate
