or Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT).

 

 

 

Plus, you will learn which of our services are right for your condition, receive self-maintenance techniques for home, and receive a customized care plan for better health through lymph services.

 

Did you know that lymph massage is beneficial two times per week/2x by self-massage, your favorite massage therapist, or even here at NLC by a board certified practitioner LMT/CLT+.  The reason for 2x is because the lymph system has a water current that gets sluggish with lymphatic load on  most people every three days (2x per week).

It is sort of like a dryer vent that gets full of lint after the third load.

We help that. 

We teach that.

The Vogel Method  for Lymphatic situations
With 30 years of manual therapy through IL state licensure,
we have the caring nature and industry experience to help. 
 
Our Biomedical background, BCTMB National Board Certification, as well as CLT Certified Lymph Therapists have created a unique blended three-step protocol, The VMLD Vogel Manual Lymphatic Drainage Method:
 
  • STEP 1
    • The Vogel Method of Spiraling Myofascial Release (VMFR) to unwind, unlock, release, clear, and balance post-surgical scar tissue, fibrotic fascia restrictions, tightness, and more. 
  • STEP 2
    • Vogel Method Manual and/or Machine Lymphatic Drainage (VMLD), a unique method to alleviate fibrosis, blockage, and drain swelling. A Certified  Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) is Licensed and Certified through their scope of practice to perform this step. Manual and/or Machine Lymphatic Drainage is essential otherwise, cellulitis may occur. Without drainage, the fluid released during Myofascial Release will essentially be "pushed toward a closed doorway" and accumulate within the body, which causes swelling.
  • STEP 3
    • Vogel Method Lymphatic Medical Massage (VMT), to feel better and gain greater mobility. This step is performed by a Licensed and Certified whom is trained in Lymphatic Massage.
 
Why the name "National"?
  • Sharon M. Vogel is the NLC Founder, Clinic Director, and a BCTMB. This is a National board Certified Practitioner and is called out of state to assist with challenging cases.
  • The main location is in Downers Grove but developed the name when there was also an office in Arizona, and various offices in Illinois as well as office sharing with other physicians.
  • Vogel was awarded to teach continuing education by the NCBTMB, a National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork.
  • NLC is IL state accredited, staffed with licensed practitioners.
  • Vogel is also fond of the name "National" as she graduated Valedictorian cum laude with a BS-Biomedical from National University of Health Sciences.
  • Sharon Vogel is also very patriotic as she has a genealogy of the Daughters of the American Revolution D. A. R.

Referral by Dr S. Billing:

"I have been seeing Sharon for 4 years now and what a difference she has made in my life.  
I had cystic breasts and used to go to see a breast surgeon to have them drained which was painful and caused scar tissue.  
Sharon is able to remove that same fluid without needles and creating scar tissue.  I have since had breast cancer and 3 lymph nodes removed and Sharon has been teaching me how to retrain my body to
get rid of the fluid build up that once my lymph nodes took care of. I can't think of a more qualified person to send anyone to!"
