in becoming a Certified Equine Lymphedema Therapist


(L-R) Marty, Big Mama, Leo, Louise

2. Certified Equine Lymphedema Therapist Curriculum 

The CELT curriculum was born out of passion, engagement, and a belief in the possible!

HEAL wants to share with you, first-hand, the challenges Kelly experienced with Toby and managing his lymphedema. Unfortunately, Kelly’s experience is quite common! 


Many owners, at one time or another, experience feelings of isolation, frustration, lack of support, and lack of knowledge on how to manage this condition effectively. 


This is why HEAL developed the FIRST program curriculum in the United States in which equine practitioners have the opportunity to become a certified equine lymphedema therapist.


Equine Lymphedema is not well understood or managed in the states and abroad. This, in itself, presents a host of challenges and opportunities. Take a look at the CELT curriculum and see how we face these challenges!

HEAL believes in transparency and we want you to be prepared to meet the
challenges as well as the opportunities.


This presentation is meant to raise awareness and educate you about the impact of this pervasive condition within the equine community and know that there are solutions to managing this condition! 

This presentation will address:


  • Market Concerns
  • Market Challenges
  • Market Opportunities  

We hope you find it informative and share it with other equine enthusiasts! In this small way, you will be part of a solution!  How empowering is that! Pass It On!


CELT Curriculum: 


Each course is a standalone course and has its own CEU’s associated with it.

4. In class 2.5 day session Wrapping = 22 credits ($1430)


  • This is the last module to complete before becoming certified as an equine lymphedema therapist.
  • The in-class session will be located at Horseworks Ranch & Rescue located in Poolville Texas.  It is a comprehensive 2.5-day in-class session teaching wrapping, the proper use, and application of compression garments.
  • Certification as an equine lymphedema therapist will be issued upon completion of all modules.


 The cost of the 2.5-day in-class session is  $1430 broken down into two categories.


  • Tuition: $730 goes directly to HEAL to cover labor, materials, and operational expenses.
  • Wrapping Costs:  $700 will be a donation to Horseworks Ranch & Rescue, a 501 ( C ) 3 committing to rescuing horses from slaughter.


Horseworks Ranch & Rescue is a 501 ( C) 3 non-profit. Steve Isenhour, the owner, has a passion for draft horses, particularly Belgians. Many of them have chronic progressive lymphedema. 


Horseworks Ranch and Rescue will provide you a $700 receipt for your supplies as a charitable contribution.


You will be better prepared to meet the equine lymphedema market challenges.

HEAL’s CELT Certification Curriculum is designed with you in mind.  


One of the ways HEAL is meeting the challenges is by making the CELT curriculum accessible, doable, and affordable for the equine practitioner.


The curriculum consists of a combination of home study courses, online courses, and in-class sessions which will provide you the skills, proficiency, and confidence to meet the market challenges.    


You pay as you go! When you complete one module you go on to the next module.
