What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?
MLD is a precise, non-invasive, light-touch therapy based on the teachings of Dr. Emile Vodder’s MLD. Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a foundational facial therapy that can be easily incorporated into any wellness practice.

It encourages the elimination of metabolic waste while accelerating the flow of fresh oxygen and nutrients through a series of rhythmic movements and manipulation of the skin. It is indicated for numerous inflammatory conditions including acne, scars, burns, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, puffy eyes and post cosmetic recovery. 
MLD is a complementary therapy to Gua Sha and the Thai Herbal Poultice Facial Massage. It provides a deeper and foundational understanding for use with or without facial massage tools.

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 advance 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

An advanced theory designed to broaden understanding of the lymphatic vessel system.

Hands-on Practice 

Once you understand the theory, it's time to put it into practice and learn a series of precise techniques to manually manipulate the skin and treat a broad range of skin conditions as well as pre and post cosmetic healing.
