Dr Vodder’s Manual Lymph Drainage Massage

Dr Vodder’s Manual Lymph Drainage Massage (MLD) is a “Large-surface massage technique that cannot be classified among any of the other existing, well-known massage techniques”. The study of this method is complex and requires lengthy training. The technique involves movements of the skin over underlying tissue in a circular and repetitive manner.

This non-invasive method uses the muscles and structure of the existing lymphatics to re-direct accumulated fluid to the areas where the lymph vessels system is operating normally.

The lymphatic system is the body’s waste disposal unit. It filters out toxins and bacteria.

There is no oil or any other medium used by the practitioner, so it is completely safe during all phases of the pregnancy (Note: the abdominal area will be excluded from the treatment in pregnancy).  

I am now qualified to Level 1 and Level 2 of Manual Lymphdrainage according to Dr. Vodder’s method. Please see copies of the certificates below.

Please note, I am not trained in treating lymphedema with MLD.

MLD is used for:

WOUND HEALING – Bone or tissue healing is remarkable with MLD. The technique will allow to disperse the excess of blood which causes bruising, get rid of the excess of inflammatory fluids and chemicals which cause the tissue to swell and allows the healing.  MLD Massage is extremely gentle, this allows you to experience pain free session where the therapist works close to the area of damage and bruising without much discomfort. MLD is widely used for a recovery from plastic surgery. (Note: the infected post-surgery cases cannot be treated with MLD).

RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS. This condition often causes poor lymph flow, leading to swelling and pain of the affected joint. MLD can help ease these symptoms.

FIBROMYALGIA. This condition causes inflammation of the skin nerves, tissue swelling and discoloration of the skin. The practice of MLD has been shown to be effective in improving stiffness and quality of life for those living with fibromyalgia.

TO SUPPORT FERTILITY. Medical professionals suggest that an imbalance in a woman’s reproductive hormones (oestrogen and progesterone) can be precipitated by the build up of toxins and allergens. This can potentially lead to infertility. MLD will promote flushing toxins and re-establishing hormonal balance.
