In the Introductory Course to Lymphatic Drainage we will know the basic theory that accompanies the drainage technique according to the Vodder methodology. We are also going to locate the ganglion chains in the body.
We will understand the importance of lymph and help it to redirect itself to the ganglia groups in order to achieve a deep cleansing of the body at an organic level.
We will cover some recommendations, contraindications and benefits of this technique. We will know and practice the opening of ganglion chains and the performance of lymphatic drainage in the legs.
May 15 from 10:00 to 14:00
Introductory course to Lymphatic Drainage according to the original Vodder method
The Vodder method of Manual Lymphatic Drainage was born around the 1930s, from a brilliant intuition of Emil Vodder. This Danish physiotherapist has devoted most of his life to studying the lymphatic system to perfect his technique and demonstrate its scientific validity.
His method is today officially recognized by important Scientific Societies of Phlebolinfology. It is also indicated as the therapy of choice (Golden Standard) in the physiotherapeutic approach of some specific pathologies of the lymphatic system.
The Vodder Manual Lymphatic Drainage is clearly distinguished by the specific manual skill on the superficial tissues (skin and subcutis).
The various manual skills, exercised with one or two hands, in the different body areas, are performed in proximal-distal sequences respecting the course of the cutaneous and subcutaneous or better epifascial flows in the direction of the lymph node stations of a specific lymphatic zone.
The action of LDM stimulates an increase in lymphangiomotricity. It is a drainage of the interstitium that favors the movement of fluids, proteins and immune cells and the elimination of catabolites and various wastes for the benefit of tissue circulation.
The technique according to Dr. Vodder is performed with harmonic, slow and rhythmic movements. Thus the physiological parameters of lymphatic flow are respected without causing “spasms of the lymphatic vessels”. It also favors other effects, scientifically proven, such as sympatholytic and analgesic.
An effect on the immune system is also hypothesized with the consequent increase in the body’s defenses.
