Manual Lymphatic Drainage (Dr.Vodder)

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (Dr.Vodder)

When applying lymphatic drainage, I use gentle, rhythmic, circular pumping massage techniques to drain congested fluid towards the appropriate lymph nodes. This is very different from regular massage techniques and creates a suction effect that improves the overall drainage of congested fluid. Excess tissue is removed, pain is decreased and the remaining tissue becomes looser and softer, resulting in better physical movement and mobility. I also encourage patients to use a special breathing technique for the stimulation of additional lymph nodes. Lymphatic drainage can be applied to the arms, legs, belly, head, or spine, depending on the clinical presentation of each patient. I provide a combination therapy that includes manual lymphatic drainage, measuring/ correcting your pH, explaining how to get nutritional support, post-drainage use of elastic stockings or bandages, rehabilitative exercises, and skincare. These work synergistically to promote the body’s physical drainage system.

Why apply manual lymphatic drainage?

Surgical invasion, rheumatic diseases or cancer can cause problems with lymphatic fluid flow, which can lead to additional health complications. Manual lymphatic drainage improves overall lymphatic flow by draining this fluid through lymph vessels, veins, and gauze. This reduces edema, swelling, and relieves pain.

Is manual lymphatic drainage an approved medical therapy?

Yes. The importance of lymphatic drainage has been demonstrated by Dr. Vodder since 1950. Dr. Vodder was a physician who pioneered the medical specialty known as lymphology. His lymphology techniques are the gold standard in manual lymphatic drainage and are recognized and approved medical therapy. The lymphatic vessels form a vital transportation system for bodily fluids. Located next to the blood vessels, the lymphatic system is also very important for the functioning of the immune system.
