What is Lymphatic Drainage?
Lymphatic Drainage Massage (Vodder Manual lymph drainage)
Manual Lymph Drainage Therapy (MLD) is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that stimulates the flow of lymph fluid in the Lymphatic System. As a scientifically proven and accepted from of treatment MLD have been administered in clinics and hospitals for many years.

Manual Lymph Drainage Therapy (MLD) is NOT massage, but an advanced modality based on the most efficient methods to move lymph.
The Lymphatic System
The Lymphatic System is composed of a network of lymph vessels, tissue and nodes that is very similar to the Circulatory System. Unlike the Circulatory System, the lymphatic system, does not have a muscle as the heart to help promote and keep healthy flow of the lymphatics. There are 500-700 lymph nodes within the body. Its main role is to keep the body immune system healthy.
The Goal of Vodder MLD
The goal of Vodder MLD is to increase the efficiency of the Lymphatic System, by reducing pain & discomfort and improving and promoting a healthy cellular environment.
Vodder MLD is often recommended for pre and post-operative proceedures:
e.g.liposuction, breast augmentation
Vodder MLD can begin as soon as 24 hours post-op. (Check with your surgeon). In a healthy individual with no medical complications, a minimum of 5-10 treatments are usually adequate to assist in the healing process and relieve the discomfort of swelling and speed the healing of bruising.
