What points do I use to release the edema in the lower extremities and legs
Are you asking as an acupuncturist or are you looking for basic acupressure points. Generally you don’t “release the pressure” of edema - you fix the cause. In other words, you don’t treat edema exactly but what is causing it.
That said our edema treatment page has a number of possible options.
I find tui na often relieves edema but you still have to treat the underlying cause. Edema varies in its intensity and one has to adjust their treatment to match the state of the edema. I like to find something the patient can do to move their lymph as well even if it is rocking in a rocking chair. Swinging if they are health works great.
