Lymphatic Drainage Massage (50 hours)

Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a profound technique to help increase the body’s natural flow of lymph by increasing 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, emotional stress and depression, sports related injuries and cases where auxiliary lymph nodes have been removed.

Other applications include:

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

Lymphatic Drainage Massage is an excellent addition to every massage therapists practice. Its extremely gentle, rhythmic moves can “go” where other techniques like Deep Tissue and Swedish cannot, such as working with swollen areas. 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
