    The Manual Lymphatic Drainage course covers the theory and practice of manual lymphatic drainage. It follows on from foundation diploma courses in massage and/or sports massage. 

    The course will also cover how manual lymphatic drainage can be used in conjunction with other therapies and disciplines.

    During Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage, the therapist uses gentle techniques to stimulate the lymphatic vessels. This therapy has many benefits, including relieving fluid congestion in pregnancy, boosting the immune system, improving chronic conditions such as sinusitis and rheumatoid arthritis, and speeding healing after cosmetic surgery.

    On completion of the course, you will be able to get full professional insurance. Please note that providers differ on how much cover they offer.
