LYMPH DRAINAGE WITH LISA SANTORO
This course is for massage therapists who would like to incorporate lymphatic techniques into their massage sessions to help improve their clients' health. Lymphatic work is useful for rerouting “stagnant” lymphatic fluid of the body, drain fluid congestion (sinus,digestive, injury, etc.) and stimulate immune system function. This course will introduce the anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system, extensively go through indications and contraindications of when and how to apply lymphatic techniques, and when to make a referral for a more advanced lymphatic issue. Students will learn lymphatic techniques that will address the main lymphatic areas of the body and study the direction of lymphatic flow of these areas. The class will be a mixture of lecture and hands-on with the goal of integrating lymphatic techniques as part of an overall massage session.
