Lymphatic Drainage Massage


Lymphatic drainage massage is a very soft and gentle 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 circulation, metabolism and boosts the immune system.  This course is written by Christine Courtney and is based on her unique method of “following the impediment to flow”.

I would like to say a massive “Thank you” for the knowledge you gave me during the weekend training in Lymphatic Drainage Massage.
The technique you taught me is fantastic! I work in a beauty clinic with different body treatments and massages and since I started doing lymphatic drainage massage post your course, it inspired me to want to help people even more.
I have helped clients post different surgeries, mostly post tummy tuck, I have used it for clients with swollen joints, swollen under eyes and even post face jaw bone removal, that helped with the swelling and minimized the pain for the client.
Massive thank you once again for being such an amazing tutor! I will definitely come back in the future for different courses!
