What's Included

Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a gentle rhythmical European massage technique developed in the 1930’s by Dr. Emil Vodder, a Danish therapist. Medical scientists have researched MLD and its physiological benefits are well documented. In Germany and Austria, this technique is covered by Government Health Plans and is prescribed by doctors and practiced in hospitals and clinics. MLD is rapidly becoming a recognized treatment of choice in many leading massage clinics, American hospitals, and outpatient clinics. MLD is a precise technique designed to accelerate the normal functioning of the Lymphatic System. Therapeutic application of MLD cleanses the connective tissue of inflammatory materials and toxins, enhances the activity of the immune system, reduces pain, and lowers the activity of the sympathetic nervous system. It thereby facilitates healing of injuries, chronic conditions, inflammation, and edemas. This five-day Basic Course prepares the student for advanced courses leading to certification by the Dr. Vodder Schools in Austria and North America as an MLD therapist. This course covers the four basic movements of MLD. You will use these movements in routines effective in treating all parts of the body. A thorough introduction to MLD theory will be presented. Instructor: Felicia Ingram PT, DPT CEU's: 40 Class Code: 1703CEU Prerequisite: Healthcare Practitioner License or 500 hours of massage therapy taining.
