This is a line of research developed by Godoy & Godoy.
Lymphokinetic physical activities are all activities performed by an individual during their lifetime. Activities require the use of muscles and so the veins are compressed and the pressure around cells increases intermittently. This stimulates the formation of lymph and lymphovenous drainage. However, activities require a greater blood supply for muscles to work and consequently increased capillary filtration. In this way, the resulting filtration and pumping effects of activities will result in either an increase or reduction of the swelling.
Fatima Godoy stresses that human beings need to work and so she uses occupation as a form of treatment for lymphedema. The main lymphokinetic activities that each individual performs in their life are studied and patients are counseled on how they should be performed. In this way, Fatima transforms occupational activities into a therapeutic activity. Using this approach, patient compliance is greater than establishing a series of randomized exercises for them. Thus, it is important to identify the activities that these patients would like to do in their life and to encourage them to develop new skills. In this way, both physical and intellectual aspects are stimulated.
