Ginger Cox

LMT / Vodder-Certified Lymphatic Therapist

Ginger was in nursing school when she first became interested in the body’s lymphatic system. Realizing the importance of how the lymph system runs through every connective tissue in the body, she began to study how it works and what health benefits a properly working lymph system offers.

In 1992, after receiving her Massage Therapist License (LMT), Cox attended a lecture by Professor Hildegard Wittlinger. Wittlinger discussed the Dr. Vodder Manual Lymph Drainage technique, a technique widely used in Europe. Knowing she had found a well-rounded method of balancing people’s health, Cox attended the Dr. Vodder School in Austria and became internationally certified in Manual Lymphatic Drainage. She has continued to re-certify in the Vodder technique every two years, and is also certified in “Fascial Stretch Therapy”, keeping her skills fresh and up-to-date.
Cox has treated hundreds of patients with lymphatic conditions, auto-immune diseases, as well as those living with pain, and continues to help people achieve healthier lives.
