Manual lymphatic drainage

Manual lymphatic drainage

Manual lymphatic drainage using the Vodder method to treat the consequences of poor lymphatic circulation in different pathologies.

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a technique aimed at activating the functioning of the lymphatic system. It consists of making very smooth manoeuvres on the skin that displace the fluid retained and help to evacuate it at the different parts of the body.

Indicated in primary and secondary lymphedemas:

Primary lymphedemas are those for which there is no known cause that produced them; they are usually hereditary and may be congenital.

Secondary lymphedemas are problems arising from the lymphatic system due to other pathologies, for example: secondary to breast cancer, varicose veins, fluid retention, fibromyalgia, etc.
