In this course you will learn to better understand The Lymph System and its relationship to detoxification and chronic conditions.
Learn Full Body Manual Lymph Drainage during these three days to incorporate with ease into your practice. We will discuss why people develop chronic conditions because of toxicity in the lymphatic system. You will learn how to help clients with lymph-related issues, including: migraines, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, wound healing, and so much more.
Lymph massage is a gentle technique that is easy on the practitioner’s body – yet has very powerful healing ability to decongest tissues, free stagnation and restore health.
Understanding Lymphedema: Working with the lymphatic system after cancer treatment
July 27-29 | Thursday-Saturday, 9:30-5:30pm | 21 CE contact hours | $450
This is a continuation of Lymph Massage for Minor Pathologies, although it is open to all practitioners whether you have taken the first class or not. In this class, you will learn what happens when pathways of the lymphatic system have been interrupted and how lymphedema develops.
You will learn how to distinguish primary lymphedema from secondary lymphedema. We will discuss how to work with a compromised system after breast, ovarian, prostate and other cancers and how to navigate different pathways to relieve patients of edematous tissues. For massage therapists, this will deepen your knowledge of how to work with cancer or lymphedema patients with a compromised lymphatic system. You will leave this class with a comprehensive understanding of how to work with the pathways of the lymph system.
The class will also provide an introduction to the use of bandages and compression wear for clients.
