Manual Lymphatic Drainage 

"Vodder Technique"

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) Vodder technique, is a unique, specialized manual technique that moves fluid out of your body's interstitial tissue into lymph nodes where bacteria, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms are destroyed. MLD is particularly helpful for detoxification, oedema & Lymphedema to boost your immune system. It can also help with cellulite reduction, scar tissue, spider veins, and acne, migraine, and other inflammatory conditions.

Lymphatic Drainage is a Therapeutic and Rhythmic Treatment that uses light, gentle pressure and rhythmic strokes to increase the lymph flow around the body. This treatment helps to flush out the retained liquids and toxins, aiding in general well-being. 

Lymphatic Drainage helps the Lymphatic System to do its job better. By understanding the anatomy and function of this delicate System, we assist your body in clearing sluggish tissues of waste and swelling.

MLD is designed to be gentle because the lymph vessels lie just beneath the skin and are only as big as a strand of hair and heavier pressure blocks the lymph flow.

The lymph nodes do the collection and filtering of waste material from cell fluid, while the lymph vessels return the fluid back into general circulation. This system clears the entire body, stopping the excess fluid from stagnating in cell tissues. Our Manual Lymphatic Drainage helps keep the fluid moving, therefore, detoxifying your body naturally from the inside out.

How can Lymphatic Drainage help you?

Lymphatic Drainage stimulates the system by clearing waste products from connective tissue, thereby eliminating toxins and allowing freer and more efficient transport of nutrients to cells. In turn, this boosts the immune system by accelerating the movement of immunocompetent cells (T & B Lymphocytes and macrophages) metabolism. Unlike some other forms of massage, it utilises a very light pressure combined with soft pumping movements in the direction of the lymph nodes.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is the most important post-surgery because the body has been through a lot of trauma internally and externally. To achieve a good result swelling must be well-managed, which is why correct post-op care is very important.

Activating the blood circulation brings uncountable benefits such as improving the appearance of the skin and increasing the supply of oxygen, what enhances the appearance of the face with the reduction of the pockets and the smoothing of some superficial spots.

The treatment is incredibly relaxing and decongests the face and neck region.‚Äč


Are there any side effects to the treatment?

There are usually no bad side effects and it is perfectly safe to eat before and after a MLD treatment. It helps to drink some water after your treatment and you may need to go to the toilet more often, as the re-energised lymphatic system starts to detox the body and recycle excess fluid and waste.

Finding a Certified Lymphatic Drainage Therapist "Vodder technique"

The Vodder technique is performed by a specially trained lymphatic therapist to stimulate the circulation of lymph fluid around the body. So, it is important that a properly trained therapist delivers the treatment. Lymphatic drainage used at least 4 basic techniques where the therapist applies the two phases: the working and the resting phase. Find an accredited MLD practitioner and make sure you are in good hands with a certified Lymphatic therapist, and read about them qualifications and experience to insure you will receive a "Lymphatic drainage" and not any massage.   You can find certified in the following directories: ACOLS and Klose Academy.

Why does the lymphatic system go wrong?

The lymphatic flow can be stagnant for many reasons, such as swelling, chronic inflammation, too little exercise, too much starchy food, stress, fatigue, emotional shock, age, some medications cause more inflammation, ingesting too much sugary and salty foods is a excellent combination to get inflammation in our bodies. When lymphatic circulation slows down, the regeneration of cells becomes less effective, and some pain and fluid stagnation may occurred.
