    There's no reason why it shouldn't work on the hands and arms Andy, as long as the circulation is being drawn towards your heart, not the other direction. They come in different shapes and sizes.

    You can do range of movement exercises on your joints, as well as massage, to keep blood flowing and stop the joints from seizing up.

    You should always check with your GP if you've any concerns.

    hi all
    I use the Cleo active leg massager booties. I have found them good for reducing swelling of my feet, ankles and legs. They come in two different sizes and have variable pressure levels. It's very relaxing to use them. They turn themselves off after twenty minutes.

    Hi Wendy;

    Do you have the velcro ones?
    How long have you had them?
    How long are they from base of the foot to the top of it?
    Any tips, etc?

    Love Terry

    hi Terry
    they are boot shaped and they zip oN. They go right up to my knees, they are start to fill up from the bottom and running work up the leg. It inflates and deflates as it goes. The full dimensions of the boots and how to choose from size is detailed on the website.

    I have had them a couple of weeks now and tend to use them twice a day, they don't completely take away the swelling but they reduce it a lot. I find the process very relaxing and tend the to doze off. My legs and feet are a much better colour afterwards and they are much less achy.

    They do come with massage cream and acupressure foot inserts, I have not tried those yet but will update you when I do.

    Thanks Wendy;

    I have quite a high instep and now thin calf's, I bought some very cheep ones and I could not really get them on and they were too big around my lower legs.

    I think that Cleo have now got velcro ones which would probably be a much better fit for me.

    Love Terry

    Yes, massage is good.

    I just noticed that I had one of my regular three weekly / once a month massage / acupuncture sessions last Wednesday with a therapist I've used for years and immediately afterwards my hand was not swollen.

    And now (Sunday morning) it's swelling up again – I clearly need to do something more often – I cannot afford to see that therapist once a week!
