This 5 1/2-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. This helps reduce edema associated with many conditions. MLD also promotes general relaxation and detoxifies the skin and superficial fascia.

During this course, students will be instructed in anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system. Basic MLD treatment sequences for indications such as post-surgical and post-traumatic edema; fibromyalgia; rheumatoid arthritis; migraine headaches; tinnitus; as well as mild, medically uncomplicated lymphedema will be demonstrated and practiced. Each day will be divided into two sections: theoretical and hands-on application.

Participants will be able to:
• Demonstrate an understanding of the anatomy and the relevant scientific terminology related to the lymphatic system
• Demonstrate an understanding of the differentiation between the normal and diseased states of the lymphatic system (physiology and pathophysiology of the lymphatic system)
• Demonstrate an understanding of the indications and contraindications related to the use of MLD
• Competently perform the techniques of MLD for all body areas
• Develop appropriate treatment strategies for indications such as post-surgical edema, post-traumatic edema, fibromyalgia, general detoxification and other conditions
• Competently perform MLD on clients after breast surgery for cancer (clients at risk to develop lymphedema)
• Competently perform MLD on clients with mild, medically uncomplicated, primary or secondary lymphedema

This course is offered to all: Licensed/Registered Massage Therapists, PT, PTA, OT, COTA, ATC, RN, and MD.
*Massage therapists must show proof of completion of a minimum 500 hours training program or be certified through the NCBTMB.

Developed by JoAnn Kovaly and Kelly Clancy, Ligament Influenced Fascial Technique (L.I.F.T.) utilizes the ligament system to release and reset abnormal tension patterns within the fascial and muscular systems. This revolutionary myofascial technique is easy on the client and therapist and can create immediate change in alignment and function.

L.I.F.T. Method Objectives
• Learn about the new and emerging science behind ligaments and their role in musculoskeletal tension patterns.
• Learn about the role of the fascial system and the common patterns of pathology found with in the fascial lines.
• Learn objective testing of the fascia and muscles to accurately document, educate, and obtain reimbursement for acute and chronic pain conditions.
• Learn about the role of tensegrity in the human structure and how three dimensional balancing of the entire body can affect long term change in pathological patterns.
• Learn simple techniques to stimulate the ligaments and reset dysfunctional movement patters that are easy on the client and practitioner.

Because fascial funtion is systemic, we believe the body always needs to be treated three dimentionally and highly suggest therapists take the entire series.  It is always fascinating to see how the body responds fascialy to the work.  Often a pratitioner will test the fascial systems ability to lengthen via Myofascial Length Testing (MFLT is part of your training) and work on only the area showing the most restriction.  Upon retesting, the therapist will find areas not addressed have totally resolved.  

The Pelvis and Low Back

Focused on the skillful application of soft tissue techniques that allow deeper access to the fascia and muscular layers of the body, this approach creates a greater sense of relief from chronic muscular tension. Muscular tension patterns can reduce blood flow and restrict the removal of metabolic wastes, resulting in pain and loss of function. The typical superficial and passive massage techniques do not provide the desired relief; this often causes frustration and more reflexive muscular tension. The practitioner will learn treatment strategies designed to break these muscular holding patterns that are direct, purposeful, and easy to apply. The practicing therapist will learn how to use: cross-fiber friction, passive movement, neurological inhibition, breath and positioning to enhance the overall effectiveness of treatment.

Prerequisites: senior students in a massage therapy program, massage therapists and bodyworkers interested in learning more about the topic.

Bring: set of sheets, unscented oil/cream, note taking supplies.  Wear comfortable clothing and supportive footwear.

Professional Ethics for Bodyworkers

6 CE contact hours / NCBTMB approved
Subject: Sports Therapy

In the rapidly expanding field of massage therapy, concerns regarding ethical behavior and practice are also on the rise. Given the intimate setting of bodywork, it is crucial to establish a safe environment and a clear understanding between client and therapist as to what is expected. Therapists must also be able to effectively communicate within the parameters of each individual's unique personality, including their own.

The intent of this workshop is to define the broad scope of ethics, empower each therapist with their own personal Code of Ethics, and explore possible ethical situations which will challenge participants to make good decisions as to how they respond.
