What Is It?
Developed in Europe in the 1930’s by Dr. Emil and Estrid Vodder, Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD®) is a safe, effective, and gentle approach to cleansing the body’s tissues and has a detoxifying effect.
It can benefit a healthy person as well as be applied to more than 60 different conditions. Scientific studies, as well as vast clinical experience, have supported the effectiveness of MLD®.
Clinically demonstrated to be effective, manual lymphatic drainage provides numerous benefits:
- MLD® Removes metabolic wastes, excess water, toxins, bacteria, large protein molecules and foreign substances from the tissues.
- MLD®, through its gentle rhythmical precise hand movements, alleviates pain by greatly reducing the pain signals sent to the brain.
- MLD® releases the sympathetic nervous system, thus helping to relieve stress
- MLD® helps the body to heal more quickly from injuries, surgical trauma, chronic conditions and edema.
- MLD® helps to minimize scar formation
