Our Massage Therapies

Massage for Lymphedema

 

Vodder Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Complete Decongestive Therapy

MLD is a manual therapy which promotes flow of lymph along the body’s lymphatic pathways by means of light pressure, rhythmic stretch and release of the skin and activation of deeper lymphatic vessels. This therapy is appropriate for acute or chronic conditions that involve swelling, heat, pain or loss of mobility. Conditions that respond well to Vodder MLD  include injury to soft tissue and/or bone, pre and post surgical procedures and swelling of the lower limbs due to venous insufficiency. MLD is also used to relax and rejuvenate the face. It relieves stress and promotes deep relaxation.
