Booking confirms your intention for the treatment and your treatment start date will only be decided and confirmed after your delivery. We’ll take into consideration how well you recuperate after delivery and your schedule.

3. When can I start treatment sessions after natural delivery?

For natural delivery, you can start treatment sessions approximately 2 weeks after delivery. This will allow time for your recuperation before starting treatment. For C-section deliveries, we recommend checking with your doctor during post-natal checkups if you are ready for a tummy massage and abdominal binding.

2. What is Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) and why Dr. Vodder’s Manual Lymph Drainage?

This is a gentle, non-invasive manual technique that has a powerful effect on the body. Emil and Estrid Vodder MLD developed it in France in 1932, and today it is the most well known manual technique for assisting lymph flow and aiding the drainage of tissues.

In this technique, the skin is stretched and torqued in a specific manner, based on scientific, physiological principles that have proven to encourage lymph flow. Karen chose to be trained in this technique and now incorporates it into her treatments because of its proven results. Manual Lymph Drainage is useful for conditions such as acne, congestive conditions, pre and post-operative procedures, chronic skin conditions, scarring, keloids, cellulite, edema in pre and post-pregnancy and some sports injuries.
