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.

The forgotten wrap ( additional ):


The body wrap is a forgotten health treatment from the very past. Applied warm, it increases blood circulation and works as an antispasmodic. It is applied in the region of the abdomen and extends from the ribs to the hips. Adding special oils or liquids directly onto the skin for different purposes are also possible.

A wrap is merely one or more wipes arranged circularly around the body (whole body wrap) or a body part (partial wrap) moistened with a tempered liquid or coated with a substance. As a rule, wraps compresses, or envelopes are also counted from the wipes, which are applied to the skin. In the area of professional nursing care, wraps and restorations are part of the alternative nursing methods, and further training as a specialist for wrapping applications is possible in Germany and Switzerland. However, wraps are also used as household products in non-occupational care. A well-known example of this is the calf coil. In contrast to associations and healing plasters, wraps are applied only briefly and are used above all for the application of active ingredients or for achieving physical effects.

Purpose and fields of application

Wraps and pads can be used for various reasons. Warm and cold wraps are used, for example, in physical therapy to stimulate the circulation of the skin and thereby influence the metabolic process at the affected site. Some wraps are used to dissipate stresses at a different location over a peripheral stimulus, for example, foot pads are used for headaches. Depending on the specific effect of the substance, coats and coatings coated with substances such as clay, medicinal herbs, or oils are intended to introduce corresponding active substances into the body via the skin.
