Training

School of Lymphatic Therapy

The Center for Lymphatic Heath offers training in manual and technology assisted lymphatic massage. Classes focus on teaching a unique combination of gentle manual lymph node drainage techniques aided by the Lymphstar Pro Fusion instrument. This gentle, noninvasive procedure is faster than manual techniques used alone and allows the therapist to accomplish in a one-hour therapy session what would take 4-5 hours manually. A Certificate of Training is provided at the completion of an introductory Level One course. Certificates are also offered for each advanced course. Please see the class schedule for a list of upcoming classes and contact us to reserve a space.

Testimonial

"I am so grateful to have found you and the healing power of the Lymphatic Therapy. Following therapy with the Lymphstar Pro the pain disappeared and I was informed by my surgeon the previously enlarged lymph node was no longer present and that neither a biopsy nor further visits were required."
