Manual lymphcapillaryLymphatic Drainage is a gentle, yet powerful technique which speeds
up the lymphatic system and helps with the removal of waste products from
the system by decongesting the tissues. By doing this, it is beneficial for a range of conditions (see prospectus). For example, you will be able to provide pain relief in acute cases, as it helps with the reduction of swelling and bruises, and get a different handle on difficult to treat
chronic conditions, like fibromyalgia and ME. It is great for injury
treatment, headaches and migraines, frozen shoulders etc. It saves the
practitioners hands and is physically less demanding than many other forms
of therapy, and can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with
other therapies.

Vodder Training is the most substantial and in-depth training in lymphatic
drainage up to Therapy 1 practitioner level in the UK and leads to an
internationally recognised qualification.

The prerequisite for working with members of the public is the successful
completion of Basic and Therapy 1. In August 17, these will be taught as an
Intensive Basic and Therapy 1 course in quick succession– which is how it is
taught in many European Countries. The format will be 5 days on, 2 days off
and 5 days on; everything else is to the same, high, standard one expects
from Dr Vodder Academy International.
Please note that after successful completion of the Intensive course, you
will be able to work on people with an intact lymphatic system. In order to
work with people who have a damaged or insufficient lymphatic system
resulting in lymphoedema and related conditions, you will also have to
complete further training (what’s called Therapy 2 and 3) which, if
successful, results in a qualification in decongestive lymphatic therapy
(DLT); including bandaging and measuring for and selecting appropriate
compression garments.

Deborah Berry has a wonderful, clear way of explaining the complicated
lymphatic system and is an excellent teacher also for the practical aspects.
In fact, she is my favourite MLD teacher, hence why we have invited her up
to teach at the Sheffield Centre for Massage Training!

This is a unique opportunity for practitioners in and around Sheffield to
learn this amazing technique, without having to spend a small fortune in
travel and accommodation. We have just put the course out and are already
receiving quite a bit of interest, so if you think that this is something
that you would be interested in, it is probably a good idea to be in touch
as soon as possible.

Look forward to hearing back from you!
