Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) Course – More Details
This Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) training course taught at Brighton Holistics is comprehensive and practical. Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) has powerful cleansing, relaxing, pain-relieving and immunological effects. It is a gentle, flowing, rhythmic treatment; from a well-being aspect, it can be applied to a wide range of physical conditions to great effect. Therefore, it can be applied as a ‘standalone’ treatment.
The Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) techniques facilitate the removal of metabolic wastes, excess water, toxins, bacteria, large protein molecules, and foreign substances from tissue via the initial lymph vessels and the venous capillaries. It also relaxes the sympathetic nervous system, reduces pain, and enhances the activity of the immune system.
It is effective in the treatment of a wide variety of problems including oedema, skin disorders, headache, sinus congestion, sprains and aches, stress, digestive disorders, and before and after surgery, to remove tissue congestion and minimize scar formation. It is particularly useful as part of post-mastectomy therapy, to reduce oedema and fibrosis, and to relieve pain and tension.
Please note that Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) training course and Oncology Massage training course are the same courses.
During the course we will cover the following topics:

- How Manual Lymphatic Drainage works,

- Anatomy of the Lymphatic system, (via our online learners portal),
- Pathology of the Lymphatic system, (via our online learners portal),

We are often asked why our course is a one day when at several other training schools, the Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) Training Course is completed over two days. The reason for this is that we utilise our online learning portal for you to cover some of the theory at home out of the classroom environment, thus keeping the cost of the course down. This course is fully accredited by the Federation of Holistics Therapist (FHT).
