Dr. Christopher Jordan D.C. has put together a concise and affordable continuing education program that will give you the knowledge and ability to incorporate manual lymphatic drainage into your massage practice immediately. This class is geared specifically to the massage professional and deals strictly with manual lymphatic drainage. You will leave the class with potent skills in the field of manual lymphatic drainage. 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 working with post-surgical clients, with and without node removal, and with clients with Lymphedema. A foundational level of lymphatic drainage training is a prerequisite to taking this course. The practitioner MUST have knowledge of the lymphatic drainage system and hands-on practice using this technique before taking this class. Practitioners are required to complete our Lymphatic Drainage Course before taking this course to be well prepared for this instruction. In the Advanced session, the student will learn to apply the basic techniques to decongest fascia and work on post-op clients, including post-op Liposuction, Lymphedema, and more.
