Carol has been a massage practitioner for over 25 years and has specialised in manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) and treatments for lymphoedema following her training at the Dr Vodder School in Austria.
MLD is a specialised massage of precise, light hand movements which gently stretches the skin in a circular motion along the lymphatic pathways towards the lymph nodes. The slow, rhythmical nature of the technique has a calming effect on the nervous system and is therefore relaxing and useful in alleviating pain.
Although treatments for lymphoedema figure largely in her work, Carol believes in the value of MLD for many different conditions following illness, operations and injuries.
