Have You Heard of Manual Lymph Drainage?
Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD®) is the manual manipulation of the lymphatic system using gentle, prescribed strokes in a specific order, direction, and rhythm. MLD® was developed by Emil and Estrid Vodder in 1936. The Vodder-method increases the movement of lymph through the entire system which renews, nourishes, strengthens and regenerates the cells, removes waste products, relaxes the nervous system and strengthens the immune system. It is performed without oils and is completely safe even for those with sensitive skin.

The Benefits of MLD® are increasingly well accepted worldwide in a wide range of applications.

What are the Benefits of Manual Lymph Drainage?
MLD® is a gentle yet powerful treatment for cleansing the body which helps in pain reduction and relaxation. It greatly improves the immune system and expedites recovery. The benefits are vast for people suffering from acute or chronic illnesses, pre and post-surgery conditions as well as for anyone interested in health and wellness. The gentle rhythmic strokes activate the parasympathetic nervous system which is the rest and relaxation state of the body. In this state the body repairs and rebuilds; creating the conditions necessary for physical and emotional healing. Equally important are the types of strokes used, they activate touch receptors in the body that interrupt the pain firing signals. This interruption means pain is reduced or turned off. In addition, manual lymph drainage removes the debris that may have been causing the pain. Every cell in the body is optimized which equates to health, wellbeing, and relief from acute discomfort.

Tailored treatment program specifically designed for YOU!
Using proven knowledge of what can and cannot be done (indications and contraindications), the comprehension of the body’s structure (anatomy) and function (physiology), and the understanding of symptoms your body presents (pathophysiology); are all taken into account to create an integrated treatment program to optimize the health and healing ability of your body.

The Benefits of MLD® are increasingly well accepted worldwide in a wide range of applications. Because lymph cleanses nearly every cell in your body, symptoms of lymph blockage are diverse. The benefits of MLD® prevent and remedy many conditions.

Vodder Credentialing assures you of the most extensive MLD®/CDT therapist training in North America. Therapists are certified to treat intact (fully functioning lymphatic system yet challenged from an acute or chronic condition) as well as non-intact (non-fully functioning lymphatic system present at birth or due to surgery, radiation or removal of lymph nodes/vessels) lymphatic systems. The goals are to reduce pain, swelling, inflammation and activate the parasympathetic nervous system to help your body heal faster.
