History of the Lymphatic Therapies
In the 1600’s, Thomas Bartholin, Danish Physician, discovered the lymphatic system.
In 1936 in Paris, Dr. Emil Vodder and his wife Estrid have shown how to improve the lymph flow with light stretching of the skin, which could have a dramatic and long lasting effect on health, prevention and recovery.
