Every day we come into contact with many toxic substances that we breathe with the air, take with food, or that manage to enter our body through the pores of the skin. Our body is naturally capable of detoxify and thus protect your organs from the harmful effects of these toxins. However, if the exposure, as in our day, is very high, targeted detoxification can be useful, even of a manual type, such as the manual lymphatic drainage.

The lymphatic system is essential, as well as for the proper functioning of the immune system, too for the detoxification process of our body since this liquid, which flows parallel to the blood, contributes to the removal of "waste" that is inside the body (even those produced by normal metabolism) collecting liquids and waste materials and then get them to the main excretory organs involved in the disposal: liver, kidneys, lungs, etc.

We can therefore understand well how a correct functioning of the lymphatic system is essential to enjoy good health while a lymph congested with too many substances to dispose of can instead create problems. It was in the 20s that the daughter Emil Vodder decided to devise one body technique that could support the lymph in its functions, thus the manual lymphatic drainage (DLM).

This technique works a lot rhythmic and delicate favoring the flow of lymph in all tissues of the body, thus helping to purify, decongest and, in case of edema (or an accumulation of liquids) reduce pain and swelling. Through lymphatic drainage the tissues can get rid of excess water, bacteria and viruses, toxins, metabolic waste, etc.

It is not a painful technique but quite the contrary very pleasant and relaxing which does not cause any type of redness on the skin and which is done without using any type of oil or cream.
