What Will You Learn?

Utilising gentle movements, lymphatic drainage massage is used to improve the flow of lymph – benefitting the body in numerous ways. In addition, it is used to treat oedema – the accumulation of fluid under the skin that results in swelling.

The Introduction to Lymphatic Drainage Massage Diploma Course will equip you with all the information and techniques required to carry out lymphatic drainage massage treatments on clients – including 10 instructional videos demonstrating massage techniques and routines – readying you for further study and supervised practice.

The course opens with an exploration into lymphatic drainage massage treatment, its benefits and effects, and how it has developed. It also looks at lymphoedema and how to work safely and effectively with this condition when providing treatment.

You’ll gain a thorough knowledge of the lymphatic system and the associated anatomy that you need to be aware of when carrying out this form of massage. The Introduction to Lymphatic Drainage Massage Diploma Course will also aid you in identifying contraindications and clients who would benefit from the treatment.

You’ll learn how to set up and prepare for treatment, including how to consult with clients to identify their treatment objectives and make any adaptations required, and also the aftercare advice to provide.

You’ll be guided through the specific lymphatic drainage movements and techniques that are used, along with their benefits and effects, and how to carry out a simple lymphatic drainage routine.

The course concludes with important information regarding legislation, health, safety, and hygiene that ensure a high level of professional conduct and the safety of the client and the working environment.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Gain a greater understanding of lymphatic drainage massage
  • Learn about the lymphatic system and related anatomy
  • Become familiar with the conditions that lymphatic drainage can aid and its contraindications
  • Understand how to prepare yourself, your environment and your client for treatment and offer beneficial aftercare advice
