Teaching Myofascial Lymphatic Drainage Level 1 at AMTA WI Continuing education event January 2023, Oshkosh

Professional Classes

Welcome to Myofascial Lymphatic Drainage! I'm so excited to work with you! You'll soon discover I'm not your average instructor–and I want to help you become so much more than an average therapist.

Hybrid Courses

Hybrid courses combine the convenience of online lectures with the necessary feedback of in person hands on class time. In this new format,

you'll get immediate access to course lecture videos and the course manual.

Completing the online portion will better prepare you for the two-day, in person, hands-on segment, giving you the confidence and knowledge to maximize your learning experience. The online portion can be done at your own pace and at times that are convenient for you. It will cut down on the time you spend away from your family and business as well as travel costs. You will have lifetime access to the materials so that you can go back and review them at anytime.

The live class begins with an opportunity to introduce yourself and your business which helps me tailor the instruction specifically for you so you get the most out of our time together. In the 2-day, in-person class, we spend tons of time focusing on the hands-on work, so you leave with the confidence to apply your new techniques as soon as you return to work.

This is a critical component of your success as an MFLD practitioner.

This course isn't just about learning new techniques. It's a transformative experience that will propel your business from average to extraordinary. We'll delve into topics that will accelerate your success and equip you with the tools to stand out in your community.

You'll have access to hands-on technique videos, which walk you through every step of the protocol so you can review the material at any time.

After the in-person class, you'll be welcomed into the exclusive MFLD FB community, where you can post your MFLD questions and get the answers you need from a supportive network of peers.

You'll also have an opportunity to add your business to my exclusive Therapist Map, which will allow you to get direct referrals from clients who are searching for a

Myofascial Lymphatic Drainage Therapist.
