What is hybrid learning?
Due to the complex nature and science of the lymphatic system, we've developed a hybrid approach to training that allows you time to read, research and absorb the basics of the theory, so you can spend more time practicing and refining the techniques in class. 

Online instruction includes a series of required reading and videos that begin once you register and set a foundation for deeper understanding of the techniques. Lecture will include a review of the online content with an opportunity to ask questions for clarity.

Practical, hands-on instruction will focus on a review of the basic anatomy and physiology of the lymph vessel system, along with a detailed demonstration and practice of ASTECC's advanced neck and face routine. 

What's included?

  • Online Theory
  • Personal Instruction
  • Hands-on Practice
  • Training Manual
  • Certification | Advanced MLD
  • CJB Spa Directory Listing

Online Theory 

Develop a deeper understanding of the lymphatic vessel system, and establish a clear sense of the anatomy and physiology in order to apply a more specific range of techniques for treating a broader range of skin conditions and cosmetic healing. 

Hands-on Practice

Take your MLD practice to the next level and improve your results by applying advanced theory,  with more precise techniques and therapeutic sequences to achieve the results you desire and create long-term change in the health of the skin.
