Using the Vodder technique, manual lymphatic drainage massage is very gentle and is used to increase the movement of lymph and insterstitial fluid. Our lymphatic systems can become overtaxed due to a variety of different causes and edema may develop. The purpose of lymphatic massage is to reduce edema by assisting the lymphatic system in circulating lymph fluid throughout the body or past areas where lymph nodes may be compromised due to lymph node removal, scar tissue or radiation.
Some examples of conditions that may benefit from lymphatic massage are:
Sprains
Whiplash
Hematoma
Post-Surgical Edema
Oncology
Palliative Care
Fibromyalgia
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Scleroderma
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Anxiety
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Stress
General Detoxification and Enhanced Immune Function
Migraine
Pregnancy Edema
Diabetes
Please note that Jenny is trained to treat only mild and medically uncomplicated forms of primary and secondary lymphedema. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions regarding the Vodder technique and whether it is right for you.
