Manual Lymphatic Drainage Vodder Style

Lymphatic vessels are a vascular network connecting the tissues with the venous system. In evolutionary terms, they develop from embryonic tissue. Very fine initial lymphatic vessels start blind in the tissue. They flow into larger transport vessels and finally into the right and left venous arches. Lymph nodes are incorporated in the lymph vessel system. Lymph filtering through these nodes is cleaned of foreign material and pathogens.

This service is great for patients suffering from lymphoma, Parkinson's disease MS, Lyme's disease and so many other illnesses, it is a great way to detox the body before and after surgery procedures as well. Helps speed up recovery to all surgeries and minimizes scaring that can occur. Please contact our office to find out more information on the wonderful body treatment.

The Dr. Vodder method uses spiral or circular movements. During these movements, there is an increase in pressure up to approximately 30 mm (similar to the weight of a nickel coin) and then a decrease to approximately zero. This change in pressure produces an increase in the motor activity (contractions) of the lymphangions by stimulating the mechanoreceptors of the lymph vessels. This promotes filling of the initial lymphatic vessels (ILVs), which also increases the total lymph volume transport (movement / volume / flow). The direction of the applied pressure of the proper strokes corresponds to the direction of lymph drainage (generally toward the venous arches).

In order to move a large area of skin, a close skin contact is needed. The therapist normally works on dry skin without lubrication.

The MLD strokes are repetitive, lengthy, uniform, and rhythmic. This creates an involuntary sympatholytic effect, thereby reducing the activity of the Sympathetic Nervous System increasing relaxation and well-being.

Hospice Massage
The BTM Massage
(Better than morphine)
Created by and dedicated to
Mr. Dick Rakemaker

Massage has proven to be extremely useful for some hospice patients in managing stress and alleviating pain, which can reduce the need for psychotropic and narcotic medications, all of which have their own negative side effects.
A primary benefit of massage for those who are less mobile or bedridden is its use in helping to prevent pressure sores. Once referred to as "bed sores," these skin ulcerations are most likely to occur over bony areas of the body, such as the tailbone, buttocks, elbows, shoulders and heels, that are in constant contact with a mattress.
Hospice patients may experience dry or itchy skin as a side effect of inactivity and drug therapy, or as a reaction to body systems beginning to shut down. Such a condition can cause further agitation for a person who is already feeling anxious, weak and vulnerable. A moisturizing massage lotion and a special blend of Hawaiian oils  helps alleviate dry skin and helps to relieve pain and itching. It feels soothing and nurturing, and can help calm a troubled spirit.
Massage is an excellent way to enhance quality of life for a hospice patient. It can help restore feelings of self-acceptance and self-esteem to a person whose body has been invaded by a debilitating, perhaps disfiguring, disease. It addresses feelings of isolation and loneliness. The right touch at the right moment can be far more effective than words in acknowledging a person's suffering, and offering comfort and support.

Touch continues to be an appropriate care giving technique when a person becomes less responsive or is no longer able to communicate verbally. Touch may even become the primary means of communication at such a turning point.

  Cold And Flu Season Immune Booster MLD

We have had plenty of information on how the flu is spread. The main target of the virus is the respiratory system. Flu can be highly dangerous for children, the elderly, or people with a weak immune system.
Parents, co-workers, teachers and children work hard to stay away from discharges from the mouth and nose from infected persons. We know that washing our hands can be the best prevention. We will discuss what to wash or clean with to boost your immune system at a later time.
An interesting fact: The influenza virus has great genetic variation, this can cause the frequent epidemics, caused by different strains of the virus. Understanding how a virus works is helpful. The virus can modify itself in each host. This makes treating a virus tricky with modern medicine.

Usually the vaccine is reformulated each season for a few specific flu strains but because of the virus’ ability to mutate, they cannot possibly include all the strains actively infecting people in the world for that season. To make a vaccine it takes about six months to formulate and produce the millions of doses required to deal with the seasonal epidemics; occasionally, a new or overlooked strain becomes prominent during that time and infects people although they have been vaccinated given for virus treat the symptoms to make you more comfortable and aren’t actually treating the virus itself.

Cupping Massage

This technique has been used in Chinese medicine for several thousand years. Cupping massage is a modified version from the original cupping version.
 Through suction and negative pressure, massage cupping releases rigid soft tissue; drain excess fluids and toxins; loosen adhesion's and lifts connective tissue; and will bring blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles. This session is great for those with Fibromyalgia and those that prefer a lighter touch or those sensitive to pressure. It is said to go 4x deeper than a traditional deep tissue massage without the discomfort.

  • Ion Cleanse Session $25 add to any massage session for only $20

This is a relaxing way to get rid of the toxins present in the body. You just have to sit on the chair, with your feet dipped into the water container. A flow of warm water will flow under your feet and the positive and negative ions in the water will attach themselves to the toxins present in the body. Toxins that are insoluble will also dissolve in this water. This service is best right after a great massage!

HEALTHY DETOXIFICATION Detoxify and cleanse the whole body by using the Ionic Total Body Detox System which uses negative ions to gently pull toxins out of the body. Ion generating technology has been around for several decades, and by using a alternating positive and negative ion charge during the treatment it is possible to remove unwanted toxic material from everyone regardless of the electrical charge the toxins may hold. Osmosis is a scientific term used to describe the movement of particles through a cellular membrane from a higher concentration to a lower concentration. The lower concentration in this case refers to the ion field set up by the array being placed in the water. With this system, it is possible to reduce pain, swelling, edema, and other symptoms caused by long term life style and chronic toxic build up.This is a very efficient way to remove toxins regardless of where they are in your body. The more toxins we maintain the faster we age and the faster our bodies break down. The immediate benefits are an increase in energy and overall well-being, weight-loss and an increased metabolism, improved digestion which will help restoring balance to the body.The aging process is slowed down and the skin is able to rejuvenate its self correctly.You must understand what is coming out of the body is microscopic and may not always be visible. With no feet in the water as with feet in the water you will see a slight orange/brown color varying degrees depending on your water. This is normal with the Ionic Total Body Detox System, because of the strength of the system it also causes more of a reaction with the impurities of the water.
