Lymphatic Massage

Developed in France in the 1930s, manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a gentle massage technique that helps drain lymph and the waste products it carries. It is commonly used to treat lymphedema, but it can also help maintain a healthy body and encourage soft tissue healing. It is a popular compliment to sports, medical and deep tissue massages.

Manual lymphatic drainage is one of the simplest yet most practical techniques you can learn through continuing education courses. You can expect comprehensive learning about the lymph system as a whole and an in-depth look at the causes of lymphedema. Some courses teach the basic technique only, but many focus on its benefits in sports massage, post-surgical care and as an alternative therapy for chronic illness.
