Lymphatic Drainage Massage (48 hours)

Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a profound technique to help increase the body’s essential flow of lymph by increasing the lymphatic circulation through the body’s natural filtration systems. This increased circulation assists in detoxifying the body, and supports our health through a better functioning immune system.

Lymphatic drainage massage has been proven to be helpful for clients suffering from lack of energy, a sluggish immune system, auto-immune dysfunctions, emotional stress and depression, sports- or accident related injuries, and cases where auxiliary lymph nodes have been removed.

Applications Include:

  • Depressed immune response due to poor production of white blood cells
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome and frequent colds or flu experiences
  • Skin disorders, including acne, eczema, poor complexion, etc.
  • Digestive disorders
  • Edema (swelling) of all kinds
  • Sinus congestion
  • Tension headaches
  • Muscle sprains or broken bones (above and below the site of the break)
  • Injury recovery
  • Improvement of organ functions
  • Allergies
  • Insomnia
  • Toothache
  • Cellulite
  • Circulatory problems
  • Emotional stress and depression

In short, Lymphatic Drainage Massage is not just a luxury for those who need it, but also a great maintenance treatment to stay healthy and prevent physical ailments. It is an excellent addition to every massage therapist’s practice. Its extremely gentle, rhythmic moves can “go” where other techniques like Deep Tissue and Swedish cannot, such as working with swollen areas and, in some cases, with acute conditions. Through its ability to address the immune system directly, lymphatic massage enables the therapist to work with a wide array of clients in need of having their immune system function significantly increased. When we have a healthy immune system, we are strong, healthy and whole.

In this course you will learn the techniques of manual lymph drainage, abdominal organ massage, and osteopathic lymphatic techniques, to clean the lymph and improve immune function and wellbeing. You will learn techniques that allow you to work with various injuries and health challenges as well.
