I have been a teacher within the MLA for over ten years and am the current chair. We offer standardised courses - accredited and non-accredited - throughout the UK. Accredited courses are delivered at degree and masters level providing students the opportunity to gain an academic qualification alongside specialist skills. We are founding members of Casley-Smith International.The courses are open to health care professionals and fully qualified Vodder therapists who want to learn an alternative approach to Manual Lymphatic Drainage, a specialist massage technique used in the treatment of lymphoedema.
The MLA teachers meet annually to consolidate, evaluate and develop our own skills and knowledge. Teaching materials are updated regularly in response to research and development in the treatment of lymphoedema - allowing the MLA to continue to offer standardises, informative and high quality education for specialist lymphoedema management.
