    Course Information

    This course is available on several dates in Australia and in Canada. Please visit the site for more detail -> https://www.rhythmmassage.com.au/manual-lymphatic-drainage/

    Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a highly specialised technique that can be used to treat many injuries and pathologies. It can be performed as a preventative technique that bolsters our bodies' ability to rejuvenate and resist all types of stress.

    MLD not only stimulates the vital functions of the skin, tissues and internal organs, but also serves to eliminate cellular waste and stimulate the parasympathetic relaxation response inhibiting muscle tonus and pain.

    It provides an excellent tool for massage therapists when regular massage is contraindicated.

    This unique training course covers the many dimensions of Manual Lymphatic Drainage:

    • All areas of the body will be reviewed and students will be provided with an understanding of the lymphatic system and the implications and complications that are associated with MLD
    • Illustration for students from a clinical perspective on how to achieve complete evacuation of lymph nodes and thus achieve complete drainage to specific areas
    • Review of current research in the area and the efficacy of MLD within this research
    • Demonstration of exact area specific sequences including amount of pressure applied and examination of "0 pressure" points within these

    By the end of this two day certification course, you’ll possess the ability to understand and perform a full lymphatic drainage with confidence and skill.

    Course Description

    It is absolutely incredible how our bodies are constantly trying to correct our alignment but in doing so we end up with so many muscle imbalances leading to increased tension
    and poor posture.

    When the fascia and musculature of our upper body and neck region become tight, from postural strains or injuries, it can create pain and tension in our anterior, lateral or posterior neck regions as well as pain and dysfunction at our temporomandibular joints.

    Please join me in exploring how to assess and treat this area using fascial techniques and exercises to bring about decreased tension, pain and dysfunction, while restoring alignment.

    What you will learn:

    • How to assess for head, neck and jaw imbalances.
    • The relationships that the muscles of the upper body and pelvis region have with each other and their role in imbalances of the head, neck and jaw.
    • How to address the fascial tension of the anterior and posterior upper body, as well as the head, neck and jaw.
    • How to put an effective treatment plan together to treat the head, neck and jaw region and surrounding tissue.
    • Hands on techniques and practice to treat the head, neck and jaw region.
    • Stretches to isolate specific muscles and their matching fascia.

    Fascial Approaches: The Shoulder

    2018 Dates:

    • October 13 & 14 (Moncton, NB)
    • November 24 & 25 (Halifax, NS)

    Investment: $400 (includes HST)

    Time: 9am - 5pm

    Course Description

    The shoulder joint, is the most flexible joint in the body. It is surrounded and influenced by over a dozen muscles which allow it the greatest ranges of motion possible of any joint of the body. When the integrity of this joint is affected by trauma, most of these muscles and their associated fascia will respond by creating excessive tensile forces to protect this area from any further harm.

    Upper trapezius and levator scapula muscles when they are stressed by physical, mental and emotional trauma as well as posture can take on a seemingly solidified texture.

    Join us in exploring how to assess and treat this area using fascial techniques and exercises to bring about release to the muscles and fascia of the shoulder region.

    What you will learn:

    • How to assess for shoulder imbalances.
    • Understanding the relationships that the muscles of the shoulder region have with each other and their role in the imbalance.
    • How to address the fascial tension of the anterior and posterior upper body.
    • Fascial treatment for specific musculature.
    • How to put an effective treatment plan together to treat the shoulder region and surrounding tissue.
    • Hands on techniques and practice to treat the shoulder region.
    • Stretches to isolate specific muscles and their coinciding fascia.
