Morpho Lymph Drainage

Practiced since the 1930’s in European hospitals and clinics, manual lymphatic drainage, was originally developed by Dr. Emil Vodder and his wife, Estrid. Initial recognition of this specialized type of massage occurred in North America some 50 years ago and is a technique that stimulates drainage of toxins thru the lymphatic system. It works on all skin types for puffiness and treatment for pre/post-op clients. Today, in America, a number of variations on the original methodology are used.

What Are the Effects of MLD?

The lymphatic system can be thought of as the internal cleansing procedure of the body. By accelerating the lymphatic fluid movement in the human body, the fluid itself is renewed, making it more efficient in removing various waste out of the body. While massage addresses the circulatory system, MLD addresses the defense mechanism of the body.
