The Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine will host a Lymph Drainage Therapy Level 1 CE class in collaboration with the Chikly Health Institute July 29 through August 1 on campus.
Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT) is an original hands-on method of lymphatic drainage developed by Bruno Chikly, MD, DO. Created out of his award-winning research on the lymphatic system, LDT takes traditional lymph drainage techniques and adds a level of precision consistent with recent scientific discoveries.
LDT is the first modality to work with the specific rhythm of lymph (described by scientific experiments), the specific depth and direction of the lymph flow, in the skin, mucosa, muscles and viscera.
From there practitioners can use their hands to perform Manual Lymphatic Mapping (MLM) of the vessels to assess overall circulation and determine the best alternate pathways for draining body-fluid stagnations.
This four-day LDT-1 course is the entry-level course into Dr. Chikly’s lymphatic curriculum and a pre-requisite to all other courses. View an example of LDT.
Course is open to DOs, MDs and continuing education (CE) credits are available for physical therapists, occupational therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists and others.
