Manual lymph drainage (Vodder)

Vodder manual lymph drainage is a massage therapy technique that allows the lymph to restore circulation, thereby avoiding stagnant liquids in the tissues where toxins, water retention and cellulite accumulate.

The Vodder lymph drainage technique takes its name from the Danish doctor Emil Vodder and his wife Estrid who, around the 1930s, working at a hospital on the Côte d’Azur, began to treat their patients suffering from chronic colds with “lymphology”, to deflate swollen lymph nodes.

How lymph drainage works

It stimulates the activity of the lymphatic system, thus exerting an extremely effective drainage action.

Effects of lymph drainage

Among the pathologies that find particular benefit from lymph drainage massage is lymphatic and venous edema, which causes swelling in the legs.
Furthermore, this type of treatment is essential to reduce pain, edema and healing times in post-surgical procedures.
Vodder lymph drainage leads to an attenuation of edema, recovery from surgery, remodeling, improvement of water retention and skin laxity.
