Class Description:

Lymph Drainage Therapy is a cutting-edge, hands-on method of lymphatic drainage developed by Bruno Chikly, MD, DO, LMT.

It was created from his award-winning research on the lymphatic system, consistent with recent scientific discoveries.

LDT1 takes traditional lymph drainage techniques and adds a level of precision. LDT is the first technique that enables practitioners to detect and palpate the specific rhythm, direction, depth, and quality of the lymph flow anywhere in the body. Skilled practitioners with developed listening skills can practice Manual Lymphatic Mapping (MLM) of the lymphatic vessels.

LDT practitioners use their hands to assess and enhance overall circulation and determine the best alternate pathways for draining stagnant body fluid (lymph, interstitial, synovial fluid, etc.). 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.


These skills are built upon in LDT2 & LDT3, adding skills to address many tissues in the body, including muscles, bones, nerves, organs, and organs of the senses.  Adding in the heightened palpatory skills of Superficial and Deep Lymphatic Mapping, the capacity to treat Lymphedema becomes even more effective.  


Throughout LDT1, LDT2, and LDT3, you are taught the concepts of treating Lymphedema. This gives you a solid foundation to start your journey of working with Lymphedema safely. With CLTC (Chikly Lymphedema Therapy Certification), you will learn the many indications, contraindications, and steps to the treatment and continued care of Lymphedema, Lipedema, and Chronic Venous Insufficiency patients. 


Learn short stretch compression bandaging, bandaging alternatives, maintenance compression garments with measurement skills, lymphatic taping, and pneumatic compression pumps.  Understand how skin care, exercises, lymph drainage therapy, and compression are required to create a successful treatment plan. Lectures of former, new, and upcoming surgical procedures to help address Lymphedema and Lipedema are shared to comprehend new advancements in Lymphedema care.  



Bring comfortable, loose-fitting clothes. Some of these approaches require touching exposed skin. We encourage you to bring a bath towel, lab clothes, and appropriate undergarments to be comfortable.

Short fingernails are required for the safe application of techniques. 

Due to the potential chemical sensitivities of your classmates, please refrain from wearing perfumes or oils to class.

You are welcome to bring a treatment table.
