I am a Certified Lymphedema Therapist. I was trained in 2021 by Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy. They are one of the four schools that teaches the Vodder method in MLD. I am qualified to do MLD and to treat Lymphedema.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage massage involves gently manipulating specific areas of the
body to move lymph to the decongested lymph nodes.
Treatment of Lymphedema, Detoxing the body, improves immune function, decreases
fluid retention, improves circulation, reduces swelling an inflammation, decongests sinuses, treats
seasonal allergies, increases metabolic rate (burns fat), improves skin elasticity, new cell growth, aids
scar tissue, improves skin complexion, promotes relaxation/soothing, aids stress, pain relief.
MLD is also very important after post-surgical Mastectomy, Liposuction or any other cosmetic
surgeries as it breaks down scar tissue, promotes faster healing, and most importantly it keeps the
swelling down and stops the fluid from retaining in the body which can cause Lymphedema.
Arrive hydrated as that helps the body detox, eat lighter foods that day as
the body is working to detox and there is some abdominal massage involved. Don’t drink alcohol or do
recreational drugs that day as the body is trying to detox, you will need to undress for treatment
because tight clothing will block lymph movement (undergarments can remain on), do not apply lotion
to the skin.
You will feel very relaxed after the treatment. You will need to remain hydrated,
frequent urination ( sometimes with a stronger scent or darker color), increased bowel movements,
fatigue, sinus drainage. This is all the body detoxing and healing.
