Lymphatic Drainage Manual Therapy
Lymphatic drainage manual therapy is a specialized body work technique that is provided by advanced trained licensed and certified health care practitioners such as nurses, massage therapists, and personal care providers. This therapy applies repetitive pressure at lymph node sites and a stroking technique along lymph vessels that stimulates the movement of lymph fluid. This therapy assists with post surgical swelling and inflammation due to numerous heath complaints such as sinusitis, arthritis, gastritis, back pain, neck pain and more.
Nurses Throughout Time
Nurses have provided comfort to their patients for many years. In doing so, they have aided their patients with many forms of bodywork therapies. Bodywork including specialized massage has been a part of nursing history with its beginning in Florence Nightingale's first nursing school.  Bodywork is still within the nurse's scope of practice but has been taught less and less over time. Now with the advent of alternative medicine, nursing bodywork with RNs, LPNs, and Nursing Technicians is making a resurgence.
Licensed practitioners such as Nurses, Massage Therapists, Home Health Care Aides, Personal Care Providers, Geriatric Care Providers, Skin Care Practitioners, and more... can add this new technique to their skills whereby offering expanded care to their clients/patients.

Lymphatic Drainage Manual Therapy Class
Lymphatic drainage manual therapy is a gentle technique that works through the body's lymphatic system to activate the body fluid circulation and stimulate the functioning of the immune and parasympathetic nervous systems. The benefits include reductions in edemas, detoxification of the body, regeneration of tissue as well as many other benefits.

Using exacting anatomical science and distinctive manual processes, Lymphatic drainage massage enables practitioners to detect the specific rhythm, direction, depth and quality of the lymph flow anywhere in the body. The practitioner will use their hands to perform work on the vessels to assess overall circulation and determine the best alternate pathways for draining body-fluid stagnations.

Therapists work with flat hands, using all the fingers to simulate gentle, specific wave-like movements. These subtle manual maneuvers activate lymph and interstitial fluid circulation as well as stimulate the functioning of the immune and parasympathetic nervous systems. It is shown that when these actions are accomplished, the results can be:
  • Reduction in edemas (swelling) and lymphedemas of various origins
  • Detoxification of the body
  • Regeneration of tissue, including burns, wounds and wrinkles
  • Anti-aging effects
  • Relief of numerous chronic and subacute inflammations, including sinusitis, bronchitis and otitis
  • Relief of chronic pain
Create another stream of income by networking with Medi spas, Oncology clinics, and Physical rehab clinics who are now hiring therapist for Lymphatic Drainage.
