Lymphatic Drainage & Advanced Lymphatic Drainage Series
Are you frustrated by the high price ($1,000 +) for lymphatic drainage training? The LMT Success Group has put together a succinct and affordable continuing education program that will give you the knowledge and ability to immediately incorporate manual lymphatic drainage into your massage practice. This class is geared specifically to the massage professional and deals strictly with manual lymphatic drainage. You will leave the class with very powerful skills in the field of manual lymphatic drainage that can be used independently to treat a lymphedemic client or incorporate into your current massage routine. Even deep tissue work can be made more effective and easier on the massage therapist. This course does not include wrapping or wound care.
The Advanced Level Course is designed for the massage therapist who will be working with post-surgical clients, with and without node removal, and with clients with lymphedema.
