Brief Answer: Use compressive stockings.... Detailed Answer: Hi, Oiling and massage has no effects on varicose veins on the long run. Massages might transiently reduce the appearance of varicose veins, however it will get back to the same appearance with time as you stand and walk around. Though the permanent remedy is surgical correction, you need not go to this extent if you are asymptomatic. 1. Use compressive stockings that fit your size while you walk around and work. 2. At night, rest your limbs over couple of pills as to elevate the limb. Let the gravity work. These two measures should keep you free from problems associated with varicose veins. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards
