Klose Training MLD Certification with Nicola McGill, LLSA, LMT, NCTMB, CLT
Live Onsite in Chicago April 24-30 2017, Room TBD
Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm
Saturday, 8 a.m - 2 p.m
This 5½-day MLD certification course is based on the techniques developed by Dr. Emil Vodder, Ph.D., MT. When skillfully applied, this therapeutic form of soft-tissue mobilization dramatically enhances lymph formation and promotes drainage within the superficial and deep systems of the lymph vascular network. During this course, students will be instructed in anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system. Basic MLD treatment sequences as well as MLD treatment sequences for mild, medically uncomplicated upper and lower extremity lymphedema will be demonstrated and practiced. Each day will be divided into two sections: theoretical and hands-on application.
Early Bird $900 until March 27th, 2017
$950 after March 27th, 2017
