Advantages of our MLD/CDP certification program
Our certification class is unique in that we offer perspectives on the varying treatment techniques and hand techniques taught by the different schools of thought in MLD. Our course director has studied and attended classes in the French Chickley techniques, as well as the Vodder and Foldi methods. Another advantage is that our course is offered in sections and there is ample time between modules to practice techniques, to study and to come to the next module prepared with applicable questions. If you take the course in Blacksburg, you also have the advantage of hands-on practice with actual patients in our clinics. There is no substitute for practice and feedback from actual clients! Lastly, we also study manual lymphatic drainage applications for many other indications than just lymphedema. We study lymphatic organ drainage and full body MLD to stimulate the immune system and to bring relief to many suffering with auto-immune conditions such as lupus, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. We are recognized as a MLD/CDP training program by the National Lymphedema Network, (Monarch Continuing Education will be listed as Lymphatic Care Specialists, LLC on this site) www.lymphnet.org.
