“Thank you so much for your wonderful teaching techniques during this class. You were able to make a rather complex system understandable. I can't wait to get back to work and use this knowledge you have taught. It was like no other course I had taken before and by far the best course yet.”

“The Complete Lymphedema Certification course was informative, thorough, detailed, and extremely educational. I learned in depth details of benefits of CDT, how CDT works, and when/why it would be implemented. I feel extremely confident and comfortable treating patients with lymphedema thanks to this course structure and the instructor.”

Kathie Cutler, RN

“After training and certification through the Academy of Lymphatic Studies MLD/CDP program we have accomplished major goals with our patients. Some are wearing dressed and shoes that never before therapy would fit. We would like to thank you for the thorough education you provide. Upon our return home we were able to effectively treat our lymphedema patients and establish a Lymphedema management center.”

Muriel Lane, OT

“I don't think I have ever learned so much in such a short time. A tribute to your instructorial skill!”

Don Landis, PT

“The class gave me a solid foundation to build on in areas of anatomy of the lymphatic system in relation to the normal physiology and understanding the effects of the pathophysiology. This enabled me to educate physicians, insurance companies and patients. I have been able to obtain results with every patient that has undergone Manual Lymph Drainage.”

Joan Finley, OT

“The course was excellent. It provides a safe and comfortable environment for practicing Manual Lymph Drainage. The number of participants was limited so we each received equal attention. A lot of material crammed in a short period but very well organized. The instructor was great, knowledgeable and paced the course well.”
