Date: Tuesday, July 7, 2020
Time: 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. (MDT)

This webinar helps massage therapists and bodyworkers understand how to perform a great Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) massage. 
During this webinar, explore the defining features of delivering an effective MLD massage. MLD is a very specific massage technique, and there are many reasons why it must be delivered this way. Learn why pressure needs to be superficial, why we need to direct fluid in pre-defined directions, and why we need to work so slowly. 

If you have ever wondered about the mechanics of delivery, then this webinar is for you. If you are interested in working smarter and not harder, then take the journey into the world of the lymphatic system and explore all the possibilities that it holds for both you and your client.
