Some Testimonials from previous students
“I feel I can bring Lymphatic Drainage into all my massage sequences to help various clients. I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Course context and teachers were excellent. It has renewed my whole A+P knowledge and am looking forward to bringing this knowledge and treatment to my therapy room” FIONA MULLEN 2015
“It will be beneficial to add some parts of this massage to other types of massage such as aromatherapy. I really enjoyed this course and it’s amazing how relaxing it is, giving and receiving this massage” MARIA LAGUNA 2011
About the course:
Lymphatic drainage massage is a very soft and gently form of massage. It uses a VERY light pressure combined with soft pumping action working in the direction of the lymph nodes only.
It is designed to stimulate the body’s lymphatic system which helps the body to eliminate waste and toxins. It also improves metabolism and boosts the immune system.
Injuries to tissue can have an impact on the flow of lymph causing tissue odema or swelling months later. So adding lymphtic drainage massage to the treatments you offer can benefit all your clients.
When clients present with lymph nodes removed the therapist needs to know how to adjust their treatment to most benefit the client.
* The anatomy of the lymphatic system
* Location of nodes
* Drainage patterns
* Indications for lymphatic drainage massage
* How to perform lymphatic drainage on yourself
* Working with clients who have had lymph nodes removed.
Upon completion of the course:
The student will know how to perform a treatment which is specific to an area of the body:
* The face
* The upper body
* The abdomen
* Lower body
* And a full body lymphatic drainage massage.
* How to adjust lymphatic drainage massage when lymph nodes have been removed.
