MLD VODDER Manual Lymph Drainage

MLD(Vodder method) developed in France in 1932 by Emil and Estrid Vodder and has grown to be the most well known manual technique to assist lymph flow and aid in drainage of tissues.

Manual lymph drainage is a very gentle treatment performed with slow, light, repetitive and precise techniques that encourage lymph to flow more freely, regenerate cells, remove waste products, strengthen the immune system, increase energy and relax the nervous system.

The Lymphatic system was described around 1654 as "A system which purifies the body and regulates irritation, swelling and oedema." (Thomas Bartholin).

Manual lymph drainage has been described as "One of the best-kept secrets on the health and beauty scene." MLD’s intensely relaxing effect masks the strength of the treatment itself. MLD facial is like a facelift without surgery.
