Dr. Vodder Manual Lymph Drainage™


Dr. Vodder’s Manual Lymph Drainage™ is a gentle skin treatment which stimulates the  lymphatic system to operate at 10x normal capacity. The Lymphatic System is responsible for maintaining fluid balance in the body and is the site of our first immune response. Through gentle, rhythmic stretching of the skin, the Vodder Technique™ stimulates the contraction of the lymph vessels, helping to move the lymph forward and drain the loose connective tissue.  This process reduces swelling and bruising, has an analgesic (pain reduction) effect, detoxes the system, and facilitates the body's own natural healing. When swelling is reduced, then the body can heal.

Vodder Manual Lymph Drainage™ moves stagnant + congested fluid by clearing cellular debris, water, + excess protein, and opens up pathways for fresh, nourishing fluid to flow to the skin. 

In addition to addressing serious swelling due to surgery or injury, other benefits of the process include the reduction of dark under-eye circles and puffiness in the face, strengthening the immune response, as well as supporting the production of collagen + elastin and creating calm, radiant + clear skin. Manual Lymph Drainage soothes the body + the mind by sedating the sympathetic nervous system and putting the body in rest + digest mode.
