SEE TOUCH FEEL

I am fascinated by how amazing and complex our bodies are. Massage is a passion to me. I consider it a privilege and I value the trust clients put in me to help assist them with their body needs. Whatever your posture and therapeutic goals are, I will approach it from a mind, body, and soul attitude.

Lymphatic drainage

 

How do the session go...

This therapy is a customized form of bodywork. It focuses on your lymph system to do its job better. By using very light pressures in a rhythmic, circular motion, a massage therapist can stimulate the lymph system.

 

What do you gain...

The lymph system to work more efficiently and help it move the lymph fluids back to the heart.Healing after surgery, better breastfeeding, and relaxation, Furthermore, by freeing vessel pathways, lymphatic massage can help retrain the lymph system to work better for more long-term health benefits.

 

The roots...

Manual lymphatic drainage was pioneered by Danish Drs. Emil Vodder and Estrid Vodder in the 1930s for the treatment of chronic sinusitis and other immune disorders. While working on the French Riviera treating patients with chronic colds, the Vodders noticed these patients had swollen lymph nodes. In the 1930s, the lymphatic system was poorly understood. The Vodders were not deterred by this and, in 1932, began to study the lymph system, developing light, rhythmic hand movements to promote lymph movement. In 1936, they introduced this technique in Paris, France, and after World War II, they returned to Copenhagen to teach other practitioners to use this therapy.
