Lymphatic Drainage

Also known as Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD).

Most massages stimulate the movement of lymph as a matter of course, but Lymphatic Massage provides external pressure specifically to promote this flow. Many practice the Vodder Technique developed in France in the 1930s. It is very light, pulsing or pumping massage which has a lulling, relaxing effect on the autonomic nervous system. It is effective in the treatment of Fibromyalgia, sinusitis, burns, acne, scars, arthritis, emphysema and migraines, as well as the more common usage for oedema, sprains and bruises. It is especially effective when combined with Fascial Kinetics.
