ADVANCED MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE
Addressing post-op swelling and pain and chronic disease
Developed by Dr. Emil and Estrid Vodder, MLD is a manual therapy that uses gentle rhythmic strokes to direct the lymph towards healthy lymph nodes to be circulated back into the body. Have you ever had a blister? The clear fluid inside a blister is lymph. Lymph is interstitial fluid that bathes, nourishes, and cleans your cells. It also maintains normal fluid levels of the body and protects the body from pathogens. MLD stimulates and increases the movement of lymph.
Manual lymphatic drainage is becoming more popular, assisting in a quicker recovery after surgery, injury, and/or trauma. After surgery, swelling is the body’s natural healing response. 1/10 of a centimeter of swelling can compromise one’s immune system 100%. MLD accelerates the healing process by decreasing swelling, pain, bruising, and the buildup of toxins and scar tissue.
MLD is also known to help clients with:
Chronic fatigue syndrome
Chronic venous insufficiency
Chronic pain reduction
Just to name a few.
Check with your doctor or surgeon if MLD is right for you.
REIKI WITH OPTIONAL VIBRATIONAL SOUND THERAPY
Healing that effects every cell of your body
Reiki is a Japanese therapy where my hands are on or above the body. Reiki works on the energetic body reducing stress, pain, energetic blocks, and trauma. Therapeutic Tibetan bowls are placed on the body and work like a vibrational massage. The frequency of the bowls not only bring the brain waves to the alpha / theta healing state but also break up adhesions in the tissues and effect every cell of the body.
