During the early 1930’s Dr. Emil Vodder created a unique range of movements which brought relief from various chronic conditions. Since Vodder’s pioneering work, MLD has spread world wide and has become a popular treatment in many European hospitals and clinics. It is now gained acceptance worldwide as a component in the treatment and control of lymphoedema.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is an advanced therapy in which the practitioner uses a range of specialised and gentle rhythmic pumping techniques to move the skin in the direction of the lymph flow.
This stimulates the lymphatic vessels which carry substances vital to the defense of the body and removes waste products. The first visit will also include a consultation during which the therapist will recommend the number and frequency of future sessions.
MLD is both preventative and remedial and can enhance your well being.
- Promotes the healing of fractures, torn ligaments, sprains and lessens pain.
- Can improve many chronic conditions: sinusitus, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, acne and other skin conditions.
- Helps to strengthen the immune system as part of “detox” treatment.
