Lymphatic massage is a gentle yet profound manual technique that is effective in supporting the immune system, moving inflammation & edema from the tissues. However, traditional MLD was developed by Emil and Estrid Vodder in 1932, before we had chemicalized foods, high stress & sedentary lifestyles, and chronic illness like fibromyalgia and long Covid. These conditions can lead to deep, long held stores of inflammation and stagnation in the tissues of the gut and extremities. This class will cover the anatomy, pathology, and function of the lymph system. It will teach the basic techniques of traditional manual lymph drainage as well as deeper flushing techniques drawn from sports massage techniques and a particular focus on flushing around the abdominal nodes and organs. The student will learn to palpate and identify congested lymph and inflammation as well as the healthy flow of lymph fluid. Students will be given manual techniques for enhancing the movement of lymph in superficial tissues as
well as deep in the full body including the abdomen, arms, and legs. This course will not focus on oncology treatments.
