Manual Lymph Drainage
Manual Lymph Drainage is a very gentle but extremely powerful treatment for cleansing the body, specifically the connective tissue. MLD helps to reduce pain, relax the patient and greatly assists with improving the immune system.
The therapeutic benefits are vast. These benefits have been researched and well documented for over 60 different conditions for people suffering from acute or chronic illnesses as well as for anyone interested in maintaining their health.
Dr. Vodder’s Manual Lymph Drainage was developed in Europe by Dr. Emil Vodder and Estrid Vodder in the 1930s. As part of Combined Decongestive Therapy(CDT), MLD is considered the gold standard treatment for lymphedema for decades.
