Manual Lymphatic Drainage For Your Everyday Clinical Practice: Level 1

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

MLD provides many benefits for your clients, particularly with assisting the body to detoxify, speed up healing times ad provide well-bing through excellent cellular and tissue health.

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

MLD provides an excellent alternative when regular massage is contraindicated and can also be used as part of an overall treatment in conjunction with any other modality.

It is a fabulous addition to the toolbox of Massage and Myotherapists.

The application of MLD works in a number of ways. Firstly the manual ‘traction’ of the skins surface allows the underlying anchoring filaments to be ‘lifted’ thus allowing more room for the fluid movement.

Secondly the manual activation of each node group allows the nodes themselves to work at a faster rate thus clearing fluid more effectively and efficiently.

MLD increases both node and tissue health by allowing swifter removal of waste products and also increasing the production of more immuno-competent cells.

This unique training course covers that many dimensions of Manual Lympatic Drainage with a focus on area specific delivery and integration with other treatment modalities:
* All areas for the body will be reviewed and students will be provided with an understanding of the lymphatic system.
