Manual lymphatic drainage is a subtle and relaxing technique used to increase the movement of the lymph and interstitial fluid. This technique is very light but effective in moving lymphatic fluid out of an area where it has become congested. I may combine complimentary techniques like hot stone or cupping therapy to aid in the movement of lymphatic fluid.

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:
Post-Surgical Edema
Palliative Care
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
General Detoxification and Enhanced Immune Function
Pregnancy Edema

Please note that I am trained to treat only mild and medically uncomplicated forms of primary and secondary lymphedema. I have been trained in the Vodder technique through Klose and Chikly institutes. I have taken lymphatic training in post liposuction techniques as well. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding the Vodder technique and whether it is right for you.

"As someone living with an autoimmune disorder that inflames my connective tissue, Jenny's lymphatic massages provided me with relief. After the treatment I noticed feeling less sore, and I had more range of motion without discomfort. Also, the atmosphere is very peaceful and I always left well nourished and rested. I recommend this treatment." CM
