Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
Two day course for Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD).
2024 DATES COMING SOON! (hosted class)
10 am – 6 pm
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) can help with skin elasticity, brighter skin, acne, and rosacea, in addition to puffiness and edema after surgery. MLD is different and distinct from massage. MLD lightly stretches the skin to pull fluid into initial lymphatic vessels, stimulating the pumping action of the deeper lymphatic vessels. MLD reduces fluid volume by removing proteins from the tissue, allowing more nutrients to enter and regenerate tissue cells. In contrast, massage pushes past the skin to penetrate deeply into the muscle and connective tissue. It is effective in softening and lengthening hard contracted muscle as well as breaking-up adhesions and scar tissue.
Upon successful completion, you will receive a Manual Lymphatic Therapy Certificate of Completion.
