Juul is a kind and intuitive instructor who has a clear passion for manual lymphatic drainage, encouraging others to learn such a valuable skill. As a bonus, I lost almost 10 pounds from all of the bodywork I participated in!  Who knew I was carrying excess fluid in my lower extremities? I feel great, have a glow to my skin, and am inspired to continue reducing the toxins in my body as well as choosing healthier options to increase my wellness! I can’t wait to share this work with clients.” JC, Wilmington, NC


What is Lymph Massage?

In this course you will learn about The Lymphatic System and its relationship to detoxification and chronic health conditions. During this three day training, you will learn Full Body Manual Lymph Drainage to incorporate with ease into your practice.

We will discuss the roots of why people develop chronic conditions because of toxicity in the lymphatic system. You will learn how to help clients with lymph-related issues, including: migraines, chronic fatigue, PMS, fibromyalgia, wound healing, and so much more.

Lymph massage is a gentle hands-on technique that is easy on the practitioner’s body – yet has very powerful healing ability to decongest tissues, free stagnation, improve immune function and restore health.
