Manual Lymphatic Drainage is an advanced therapy aimed to enhance and stimulate the drainage of the lymphatic system.  Encouraging the natural flow of lymph fluid around the body helping to eliminate waste products, reduce swelling as well as boosting your body’s immune system, promoting wellbeing and cleansing the entire body.

It is important to support your lymphatic system as it performs a crucial function in our health and wellbeing.

It was first developed in the 1930’s by Dr Emil Vodder in Europe. During the 1960’s it was further developed by Dr Foldi from Germany and a Belgian physician Leduc for its use in patients with lymphatic diseases. In more recent years several schools have evolved with differences between them focusing primarily on the sequence of hand movements. Doctors consent maybe required before commencing treatment.
