 Manual Lymphatic Drainage Vodder Technique (MLD): 

The lymph system is part of your body’s immune system and helps fight infection. Your cells create waste, and the lymph is responsible for carrying that waste to be excreted from the body. There is no pump for the lymph system like there is for the blood, so it has to be manually stimulated through massage, deep breathing, or movement.


Manual Lymphatic drainage (MLD)  is a specialized form of gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body.

Lymphatic drainage uses very light pressure and gentle, rhythmic strokes to increase the flow of lymph and reduce toxins in your body.

MLD is designed to be gentle because the lymph vessels lie just beneath the skin and are only as big as a strand of hair and heavier pressure blocks the lymph flow.
