In this course students will learn how to manage symptoms of degenerative CNS conditions with the use of Manual Lymphatic Drainage and cranial sacral techniques to mobilize and remove protein and debris from the brain. Students will be able to identify indications for treatment and implement specific treatment protocols to affect symptom reduction and increase function for clients with MS, Parkinson's, Dementia, and more. Wonderful treatment addition for therapists trained in MLD.
