Manual lymphatic massage is a subtle and relaxing technique used to increase the movement of the lymph and interstitial 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:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
General Detoxification and Enhanced Immune Function
Please note that I am trained to treat only mild and medically uncomplicated forms of primary and secondary lymphedema. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding the Vodder technique and whether it is right for you.
