Clients

Violetta works with clients with a huge range of symptoms. Some prefer the hands on treatment of a therapeutic MLD massage, others have more interest in practical tips for improving their diet through the green chef workshops. Many combine both to help them reach a healthier place.

If you suffer from chronic fatigue, stress, IBS, PMS, migraine, weight problems, a sluggish digestive system, food intolerances (wheat, dairy, egg or gluten), a compromised immune system, fluid retention, among other disorders or are recovering from cancer or a major operation – MLDetox could help.

MLD

 

I have been having regular MLD sessions with Violetta. From the start she put me at ease with her warm, accepting manner. She is a skilled MLD therapist who cares about her clients. Violetta inspires trust, because it is obvious that she is very committed to her work and has high professional standards. As well as treating my lymphoedema, Violetta has given me a lot of advice about eating healthily. Her support, enthusiasm and encouragement have made detoxing fun!  Sue C.

As well as experiencing a very deep state of relaxation during an MLD treatment, the benefits for me have been enormous. They include much improved skin condition – being a sufferer of rosacea it has been remarkable to see the improvement after a course of MLD treatments. My skin is much less red and my complexion much clearer.   Through regular MLD treatments I have also enjoyed greater clarity of thought, more efficient digestion, and much fewer minor illnesses. I wake up feeling a deep sense of rest with more energy to enjoy life. My general well being is much better for having regular treatments and I always look forward to every one. I would highly recommend MLD and cannot emphasise the benefits enough.  Michelle A.

I was tired all the time, sluggish, overweight and advised by my doctor to lose 3 stone. I went on a detox diet which recommended Manual Lymphatic Drainage massage and dry skin body brushing. I had several MLD sessions with Violetta and noticed a big difference in my body. I have much more energy now, my weight has dropped and my skin feels soft and pliable. The massage is so gentle and relaxing, I sometimes doze off! I feel great. I was tired all the time, sluggish, overweight and advised by my doctor to lose 3 stone.

I was suffering from spots, sinus problems and facial tension as I used to clench my jaw muscles. I had tried various therapies such as facial massage which had not helped me. Violetta was highly recommended to me by a friend. I had an initial consultation and treatment, followed by a week of daily sessions where Violetta worked mainly on my face and shoulders. Over the following weeks my skin and sinuses improved dramatically, I felt relaxed and had more energy. I now continue to have treatments every 4-6 weeks. I tell myself it is to keep my skin looking good but it is also an excuse to have a wonderfully relaxing “treat!”   Linda F.

My experience of MLD was educational, deeply relaxing and ultimately very positive. Much of that was down to my therapist, Violetta, who showed genuine understanding at the time when it was hardest. I had waited sixteen years for someone to recognise the impact of glandular fever and chronic fatigue and help me in such a potent way. I now look forward to my maintenance sessions – not only because Violetta is so passionate about the treatment but because of her caring, reassuring approach.  Michelle M.

For 2 years I had sinusitis and was sick every day.  My doctor and later a consultant prescribed ever more powerful and expensive antibiotics and steroids.  They had no lasting effect and I gave them up in despair.  Then a chance meeting brought me to Violetta.  Half a dozen sessions of MLD and a slight change of diet and now I am right as rain and I have even stopped snoring.  Violetta has a gentle sincere intensity of belief in what she does and has given me a new start in life.  Kairen H.

I originally went to see Violetta for recurrent headaches, but during the extensive consultation she explained that the MLD treatment was also suitable for any scarring due to surgery.  As I had had two extensive cosmetic surgery operations eighteen months previously, with over 50 inches of scars I was very pleased when Violetta explained that the treatment was suitable for any type of operation scar; the skin would become more 'normal' looking, lessening the scar tissue (my scars resembled a rope), and would lessen its obvious appearance during treatments.  The treatments were very effective; my headaches improved considerably, and my operation scars have healed beautifully, and are now flesh coloured, blending in to the surrounding skin.  Another plus is that the skin in the area around the operation areas was tight as a drum, with some numbness, which the surgeon had explained might never regain normal feeling (with a degree of numbness to stay).  All numbness has now totally gone, and now feels as it did before the operation.  I would recommend Violetta's treatments for a lot of different problems, but particularly for any cosmetic surgery scarring; even though a surgeon can do a brilliant job, after the operation you are pretty much 'on your own', and if I had never consulted Violetta for my headaches, I would never have found out that MLD is suitable for scarring;  indeed in Germany MLD is done in the hospital before and operation, and straight after the operation.  I continue to see Violetta for maintenance treatments; she is an excellent therapist.  Sarah A.

I have a condition called lipoedema which affects my legs causing them to swell and at times be extremely uncomfortable.  On reaching retirement age I was experiencing much discomfort and pain until I was fortunate enough to meet Violetta.  Regular MLD treatments not only cured the pain but greatly improved my general health and wellbeing.  Dr. Vodder's technique, practiced by Violetta is designed to improve the lymphatic system.  It is very gentle and Violetta's expertise enables her to identify the key areas of the body that need attention.  She is also very knowledgeable on a wide range of medical problems.  An initial consultation allows her to identify symptoms that need attention thereby making this treatment a complete overhaul and cleansing of one's system.  I have no hesitation in recommending this treatment for all age groups.  Paula R.

I was due my usual 3 year mammogram check when it was suggested to me by a naturopath that I have Thermal Imaging instead.  Thermal Imaging is non-intrusive and can detect a lump in a breast 8 years before detection by conventional mammogram.

My results showed no lumps but that I had a 'mass' of irregular cells in my left breast.  The cause was two ribs that were stuck together and inhibiting good blood supply to the affected cells.  After osteopathy, to realign the rib cage, it was suggested that MLD would be of great benefit in diffusing the mass and draining the area, which had been blocked for so long.

Violetta was highly recommended to me by my daughter and I had a series of MLD treatments at her beautiful home in Devon.  Violetta has a very calming and caring personality and was very professional and positive with the treatment she gave me.  I had great confidence in her and I am so pleased she was able to treat me because a subsequent Thermal Imaging revealed that the mass had almost totally dispersed.
