MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE
Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) or Lymphatic Massage is a gentle, non-invasive technique that helps move the lymph through the lymphatic system.
One of the primary concerns health care professionals have is controlling the edema. Edema is inflammation that occurred either from direct result of injury or from the surgery itself. Managing the edema allows the body to heal faster and can prevent secondary injuries from occurring.
The edema that occurs post surgery or injury is an abundance of interstitial fluid. This is fluid that needs to find its way back to the circulatory system. When surgeries are done, more specifically plastic surgery or lymph nodes removed, the normal route that fluid moves through the body can be obstructed.
IS MLD PAINFUL?
NO! We are skillfully trained in the Vodder Technique, which is THE most effective MLD technique to date. The Vodder Technique is gentle and rhythmic -- meant to move superficial fluids. This technique is NOT painful and is often described as soothing and relaxing.
