Manual Lymph Drainage & Cupping


The Dr Vodder method of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a unique method developed in France in the 1930s.  It enhances fluid movement in teh skin and has a profound relaxing and calming effect on teh nervous system.  The gentle, rhythmic, pumping massage movements follow the direction of lymph flow and produce rapid results.  Research in Australia, Europe and North AMerica has proven it efficacy as a stand-alone treaatment and in combination with other therapies.

It is the penultimate treatment for lymphedema and lipedema and is also extremely beneficial post surgery and after broken bones.


Cupping for Myofascial Release and Reducing the Appearance of Cellulite

Cupping is essentially the inverse of massage … rather than applying pressure to the tissue, cupping uses suction to gently pull tissue upward.  The combination of cupping with myofascial massage is extremely effective for releasing adhesions.  The combination of cupping with manual lymph drainage is extremely effective for treating cellulite.

Cellulite is caused by fibrous connective cords that tether the skin to underlying muscle, with fat lying inbetween the skin and muscle.  As the fat cells accumulate or enlarge, they push up against the skin, while the long tough connective cords continue to pull downard.  This creates an uneven surface or 'dimpling' referred to as cellulite.  


Cupping is especially effective for elongating the tightened fibrous connective cords.  The suction between the cup and the skin causes the tissues to separate slightly.  This separation allows for cellular waste and toxins to be drawn out of the cells.  Manual lymph drainage helps to move waste products and toxins into the lymph for elimination from the body.
