"Dr Vodder's Applied MLD is an intensive but worthwhile course that provides a great in depth understanding of the lymphatic system and why it is so important for a healthy body. By just practicing the techniques I was learning on my family while doing the course I could see the initial benefits of manual lymphatic drainage."
