Hey Stranger :D

I am not a real big fan on acupuncture for lymphedema. There are no clinical studies out that would show it works, plus I am very concerned about the possibility of cellulitis from the needle holes and or lymphorrhea issues.

We do have a page on it:

Thanks, Pat. I read that article and I have concerns as well. That's why I asked about acupressure instead :lol:
