Video Course: Lymph Drainage

Dr. Bruno Chikly

Join Dr. Chikly as he shares some of the concepts behind what makes his signature modality, lymph drainage therapy (LDT), so effective. LDT works with the specific rhythm of lymph (as described by scientific research) and the specific depth and direction of the lymph flow in the skin, mucosa, muscles, viscera, and bones. As the developer of LDT, Dr. Chikly will explain why his work takes lymphatic drainage beyond traditional applications with the unique application of lymphatic mapping and other key techniques such as lympho-fascia release (LFR), which allows the simultaneous release in restrictions of the fascia and fluid body.
