Lymphatic Massage

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) massage is a light, delicate form of massage that stimulates the body’s lymphatic system; improving metabolism, assisting the body to eliminate waste and providing a boost to the immune system. Lymphatic massage is gentle and relaxing, supporting the health of the entire body.

The lymphatic system plays a crucial role in the body`s ability to heal from injury and ward off disease. It is essential to the body`s drainage system for cleansing and filtering out toxins and bacteria. When the lymphatic system becomes blocked, fluid builds up and stagnates making us feels sluggish and more susceptible to disease.

Unlike the blood circulatory system, the lymphatic system has no central pump it relies on muscle movement from deep breathing, exercise and manual manipulation to move the lymph. A properly functioning lymphatic system is essential for overall health.


Vodder method

Vodder method and other MLD treatments have slightly different techniques with Vodder being considered the traditional MLD technique upon which other techniques are based.  The unique Vodder method uses extremely light spiral or circular manipulations. The precise movements are applied slowly and rhythmically to move the skin in the direction of the lymph flow. MLD has a calming effect because it lowers the activity of the sympathetic nervous system which can help with pain management. It increases the flow of lymph  which removes toxins, waste and fluid from the lymphatic
