Lymphatic drainage is one of the most valuable tools a massage therapist can have in their tool box. If you are curious about the lymphatic system, and not yet sure if you are ready to invest in a costly, in-person training, then this course could be exactly what you need!
Note: This course does not include hands-on techniques. We believe that lymphatic drainage is a technique that students should practice in a physical classroom, under the direct guidance of an instructor who can check depth/pressure. Take this course if you have ever considered learning Lymphatic Drainage Therapy/Manual Lymphatic Drainage. It will help you prepare for an in-person course and to get the most out of more advanced, hands-on training.

Many 2200(+) hour massage therapy programs include basic lymphatic massage in the curriculum. However, lymphatic massage is not the same as lymphatic drainage. After taking this course, you will understand why it is important to treat the lymphatic system specifically, and decide for yourself whether or not to pursue more advanced, hands-on training.

"I learned so much in my prenatal class with Janine (she is an excellent teacher). Before taking her class, I had some nervousness about massaging a prenatal client but after her class I not only felt knowledgeable but confident!
The class was detailed and organized. She paced the class just right, so you feel challenged but not overwhelmed. Thanks Janine! You are amazing at what you do!!!"
Katrina Judge, RMT
"Janine's Prenatal Massage program was the best continuing education course I have ever taken.
If you are looking to either learn about prenatal massage for the first time or expand on the knowledge you already have this course Is a must.
It has transformed my practice and given me the confidence and skills I need to treat prenatal clients safely and efficiently. "

"Janine showed how to massage on the abdominal area, I thought it is not good to rub the abdominal area. My old idea was broken!
Her English is very easy to listen to. And she is very feminine. I think she is perfect to match to teach prenatal/ postnatal massages."
Jenny Stevens, RMT
“I love that Janine teaches how to drape and massage in the side lying position.
Also, being able to review the videos when I need is great. I don't use side lying every day, so having the ability to quickly review before a massage is really helpful.”

NO DOUBT, NO WORRY!
