Theory of and Applications for Neuro-Lymphatic Therapy

Description

In this two-day lecture and lab-based class, we will explore exciting new studies as well as learn the practical applications of Neuro-Lymphatic Therapy (NLT) for the purposes of tissue and central nervous system (CNS) detoxification. NLT can assist in decreasing the clinical manifestations of neurological and autoimmune diseases. Due to hands-on labs, this is a small class and will fill quickly—register soon!

Note: It is recommended that participants wear comfortable clothes for labs.

Target Audience

Occupational Therapists & Assistants; Physical Therapists & Assistants; Massage Therapists; and Nurses or other healthcare professionals with a background in Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

Objectives

Upon conclusion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:

  • Correlate the physiology of the lymphatic function to the physiology of the CNS and properly identify basic lymphatic and CNS anatomy via palpation or anatomical chart
  • Describe how CNS disease processes affect functional movement, range of motion, and pain
  • Find and reference research articles which demonstrate the anatomical and/or physiological links between common CNS disorders and the lymphatic system
  • List the rationale of each of the five concepts of MLD and how they relate to the anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system
  • List indications and contraindications for NLT
  • Identify indications of lymphatic and cerebrospinal fluid stagnation, explain how this can influence function and pain, and describe what manual interventions should be used
  • Demonstrate the proper hand positions of cranial, therapy and the hand placements for a general head and neck sequence; as well as the general thorax, spine, and abdominal sequence of NLT
  • Demonstrate a correct manual sequence utilizing NLT for positive client/patient outcomes and list the correct order in which to apply NLT with other manual modalities
  • Instruct the client/patient in basic self-care routines of NLT to extend therapy sessions and facilitate self-management
