NB: This course is in two phases. DATES: AUGUST 12th -16th AND 19th – 23rd August 2019


Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle, yet powerful technique which speeds up the lymphatic system and helps with the removal of waste products from the system by decongesting the tissues. By doing this, it is beneficial for a range of conditions (see prospectus). For example, you will be able to provide pain relief in acute cases, as it helps with the reduction of swelling and bruises (also directly after surgery), and get a different handle on difficult to treat chronic conditions. It is great for injury treatment, headaches and migraines, frozen shoulders etc. It saves the practitioners hands and is physically less demanding than many other forms of therapy, and can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other therapies.

Training is the most substantial and in-depth training in lymphatic drainage up to Therapy 1 practitioner level in the UK and leads to an internationally recognised qualification.

The prerequisite for working with members of the public is the successful completion of Basic and Therapy 1. In August 19, these will be taught as an Intensive Basic and Therapy 1 course in quick succession. The format will be 5 days on, 2 days off and 5 days on; the standard is high as one expects from Dr Vodder Academy International – we recommend to stay on-site during the two off days to revise the theory and practice the practical.
Please note that after successful completion of the Intensive course, you will be able to work on people with an intact lymphatic system. In order to work with people who have a damaged or insufficient lymphatic system resulting in lymphoedema and related conditions, you will also have to complete further training (what’s called Therapy 2 and 3) which, if successful, results in a qualification in decongestive lymphatic therapy (DLT); including bandaging and measuring for and selecting appropriate compression garments.

Deborah Berry has a wonderful, clear way of explaining the complicated lymphatic system and is an excellent teacher also for the practical aspects.

Please note that the Early Bird for this course runs out on 30th June.
