Manual Lymph Drainage has climbed to the 4th most requested massage modality in the United States!
Manual Lymph Drainage was developed, refined and researched by Dr. Vodder near the turn of the century in Europe. Since then, MLD was made available in European Clinics of Lymphology to treat medical conditions and offered at elite spas for wellness and cosmetic beauty. As America’s “Boomers” are opting for these services, they still prefer the most natural modalities to complement their procedure, and surgeons respond with great respect to the pre-and post-operative benefits of Manual Lymph Drainage. Whether for general immune system enhancement, natural healthy skin glow, weight reduction or to minimize swelling, bruising and pain, MLD has found its way on the menu of services of Med-Spa’s everywhere.
It also does an amazing job reducing scars before they even form.
In this course, we will cover the use of MLD in the Spa, Med-Spa industry beginning with an introduction to the foundation and history of the work and its historical spread through the United States. You’ll discover lymphatic A&P in a new and exciting way that brings meaning to the words: detoxification, weight loss and more.
Then you will learn a full body MLD that combines the art & science of manual lymph drainage celebrated in the elite spas of Europe.
You’ll also enjoy before & after photos taken at surgery sites by your instructor who has worked for several of America’s leading surgeons.
