What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) for short, is a gentle, non-invasive technique intended to stimulate the lymph nodes and stimulate circulation through the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system plays a role in immune function, swelling and water retention.
MLD is typically carried out by a licensed massage therapist, and involves various techniques including the Vodder Methodology. The Vodder school of thought involves stretching and torquing the skin in a specific manner, based on scientific and physiological principles that have proven to encourage lymph flow.
