Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) massage is a soft and gentle massage which facilitates in moving stagnant trapped lymph and toxins from the body. It is extremely relaxing and has multiple benefits for both horse and practitioner!
The other applications can be used for laminitis, tendonitis, scars, post-surgical
applications, pregnancy, senior or frail horses. The beauty of this modality is that
it is soothing and relaxing.
As a practitioner, traditional massage modalities can often result in repetitive
stress injuries and many times retiring from the profession. MLD is not strenuous on your hands or joints. There is no need to perform deep tissue or pound the hind quarter of the horse to get results. Whether horse or human, the body recognizes a gentle touch as a healing touch. You will be able to integrate MLD into your own massage practice.
The proper application of strokes and sequences are essential to maximizing the benefits of this modality. This comprehensive two-day training offers minimum lecture and maximum hands-on application. You will:
Learn about the anatomy and physiology of the equine lymphatic system and its impact on other body systems and overall health.
Get personal instruction in a very small class and learn the six basic strokes used for equine MLD.
Learn the fundamentals behind each stroke and the mechanics of how and where they are applied to maximize lymph flow and drainage.
Learn and apply 3 different manual lymph drainage sequences to the head, front limb and hindquarters.
Learn the clinical applications for equine manual lymph drainage.
To provide a positive learning experience and maximize individual instruction, we limit the number of students for any one session to four to eight.
Equine Manual Lymph Drainage Massage or MLD helps horse owners to manage a variety of ailments such as founder and tendonitis as well as promote the health and wellbeing of pregnant, frail, and horses fresh out of surgery.
We provide comprehensive classes, with the maximum hands-on application so you can master the fundamentals and be on your way to the first of its kind certification.
