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.

In LDT2, you'll review and hone existing skills, plus learn valuable refinements and advanced drainage techniques for all surface areas of the body, along with numerous pathological conditions. You will learn the foundational principles of lymphedema care. At the end of the course, you should be able to drain the superficial lymphatic circulation over the entire body and the cisterna chyli, breast tissue, and perform Lympho-Fascia Release (LFR) on some viscera.

 

Attire/Supplies:

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 so that you are comfortable.

Short fingernails are required for some techniques.

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

Please call the Institute if you can bring a massage/treatment table.
