Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Saturday June 19, 2021 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

Although not a particularly familiar body system, the Lymphatic System is crucial in maintaining our overall health and well-being and important in helping our immune system function properly.  Through a series of networks and vessels just below our skin, toxins and other waste products are carried in a fluid called lymph, cleansed in our body’s filters (lymph nodes) and reintroduced back into the circulatory system.   Participants in this workshop will learn basic anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system and the role lymphatic structures and organs play in transporting and eliminating waste and toxins in our bodies.  We will discuss and practice techniques to help manually assist lymph through vessels of the lymphatic system by means of short, light-pressure strokes.  Conditions affecting the lymphatic system and how lymphatic drainage may safely help in easing the side effects of these conditions will also be learned so that you can add this fascinating and beneficial technique to your skills as a massage therapist right away!
