For Health Professionals Leading to a Certification by the Dr. Vodder School International
Dr. Vodder's Manual Lymph Drainage® (MLD) is a gentle, non-invasive, but powerfully effective manual technique designed to boost the functioning of the lymphatic system, cleanse the connective tissue of inflammatory materials and toxins, reduce pain, lower the activity of the sympathetic nervous system and help enhance immune response, thereby facilitating the healing of injuries, chronic conditions, inflammation, and edemas. In this 30 minute sample, Kathy discusses how research has proven its efficacy as a stand-alone treatment and in combination with other therapies. MLD has grown to be the world's most well-known manual technique to assist lymphatic drainage.
This second of three training modules in Dr. Vodder's Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) covers: a review of all the basic techniques and sequences learned in the first module; special techniques for the joints, head, mouth and abdomen; and more advanced practical applications, theory and current research. The training includes oral, written and practical exams to test participants' competence in basic techniques and theory.
In MLD, the skin is stretched and torqued in a specific manner that has been proven by extensive scientific physiological research to encourage lymph flow. If performed correctly with the correct pressure, direction and speed, this technique can greatly enhance lymph drainage and boost the parasympathetic nervous system, helping speed a patient's recovery from acute or chronic illness. MLD has profound positive effects on many of the body's systems, and is also calming and relaxing, giving patients a deep sense of well-being after treatment.
This program offers the original Dr. Vodder Method of Manual Lymph Drainage® (MLD) with the highest standards of training, led by one of North America's leading and most knowledgeable instructors. Accredited by the Dr. Vodder Schule in Austria and by the Vodder family, this school is one of only two Vodder Schools in the world authorized to teach the original Vodder method of Manual Lymph Drainage.
