Lymphatic Drainage

Manual lymphatic drainage is a gentle form of massage that accelerates the circulation of the lymph—fluids that support your immune system—throughout the body.

Lymphatic Drainage Certification And Licensing

Manual lymphatic drainage should only be performed by a trained and certified provider.

Named for the method's founding father, the Dr. Vodder School was established in North America in 1993 and is the most extensive training school for manual lymphatic drainage. Therapists are certified after completing 160 classroom hours, where they study orthopedic applications and the treatment of soft tissue injuries and skin conditions.

Classes at this highly regarded establishment are open to health care professionals as post graduate training as well as nationally certified massage therapists with a minimum of 500 hours of training.

The Academy of Lymphatic Studies is another leader in manual lymphatic drainage certification. Students of the academy must complete vigorous certification courses, management seminars and continuing education courses.
