This training is elemental to seeing improvement in patients with visible swelling disorders.

Basic MLD Certification

This will qualify practitioners to work extensively with conditions of the lymphatic system, excluding disorders where there is a direct lymphatic pathology, i.e. cancer treatment of the lymph nodes, lymph node removal, and types of edemas that require bandaging. This course is ideal for those who work inside or outside of a direct medical setting seeing lesser medically complex clients. The cost for this certification is $2,195.

With this certification, you will be able to safely treat: orthopedic edema, venous insufficiency edema stage 1, whole-body tissue detoxification, symptoms of lupus, arthritis, RA, osteoarthritis, Lyme disease, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, aesthetics, cellulite, lymphatic facial detoxification, wrinkles, scarring, early stage lymphedema, swelling due to surgical procedures and trauma, and much more.
