Candessa: Lymphatic Drainage Massage

The Lymphatic Drainage massage was developed in Europe and is characterized by a very gentle, rhythmic touch that soothes the nervous system.

Mallory Stahl from Candessa Aesthetics tells about the Lymphatic drainage Massage.

At Candessa Aesthetics, we strongly believe in overall wellness and healing of the body. That is why we offer the lymphatic drainage massage. This massage works the lymphatic system of the body and can benefit the body in many different ways.

This massage was developed in Europe by Dr. Emil and Estrid Vodder. In 1832, Dr. Vodder and his wife were working as masseurs on the French Riviera. Most of their patients were vacationing English who were there to recover form chronic colds. All had swollen lymph nodes. At that time, the lymphatic system was taboo for masseurs, as well as, for physicians. Dr. Vodder broke the taboo and treated the swollen lymph nodes intuitively and successfully; the result: the colds vanished. He went on to develop the Manual Lymphatic Massage.

This massage is characterized by a very gentle and rhythmic touch that soothes the nervous system. The massage is not only relaxing, but has powerful effects on the body. It can help do the following:

· Relax mind and body

· Cleanse the body tissues of metabolic wastes,

· bacteria and toxins.

· Relieve body of pain and soreness.

· Reduce unwanted fluids in the body. Effective for

· acute and chronic edema.

· Boost immune system.

Not many spas or plastic surgery practices offer this massage due to the level of training that is required to effectively perform this massage. All of our master estheticians are highly trained and have been specifically trained on the Vodder Lymphatic Drainage Massage.

Dr.Kjar believes so strongly in this massage that he gifts each of his cosmetic surgery patients with two of these complimentary massages. He has seen that if a patient receives a treatment before and after surgery that they usually recover much quicker. Lymphatic Drainage Massage cleanses the body’s tissues of the anesthesia much quicker then the body can do on its own. It also helps the body recover from any soft tissue trauma, therefore when the body undergoes surgery, by having this massage the body will have less bruising and pain.
