Manual Lymphatic Drainage For Your Everyday Clinical Practice

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a highly specialized technique that can be used to treat many injuries and pathologies.

It can be performed as a preventative technique that bolsters our bodies' ability to rejuvenate and resist all types of stress.

MLD not only stimulates the vital functions of the skin, tissues and internal organs, but also serves to eliminate cellular waste and stimulate the parasympathetic relaxation response inhibiting muscle tonus and pain.

It provides an excellent tool for massage therapists when regular massage is contraindicated.

This unique training course covers the many dimensions of Manual Lymphatic Drainage:

  • All areas of the body will be reviewed and students will be provided with an understanding of the lymphatic system and the implications and complications that are associated with MLD.
  • Illustration for students from a clinical perspective on how to achieve complete evacuation of lymph nodes and thus achieve complete drainage to specific areas.
  • Review of current research in the area and the efficacy of MLD within this research
  • Demonstration of exact area specific sequences including amount of pressure applied and examination of "0 pressure" points within these

By the end of this single day you will have reviewed all sequences and revisited the essential theory as well. This extra study day will inform your practice, refine your skills and build your confidence in the delivery and execution of an excellent MLD treatment.
