Manual Lymphatic Drainage

I began my lymphatic training with ACOLS (The Academy of Lymphatic Studies) in 2017 first taking the Manual Lymphatic Drainage course, a 5-day 40-hour course taking an in-depth look at the lymphatic system as well as hands-on training. A year later I returned to take the Complete Lymphedema Certification course to become a CLT (Certified Lymphedema Therapist). This course is a 10-day 135-hours of intensive study of the lymphatic system as well as hands-on instruction.  In total, I have received 175-hours of classroom and hands-on instruction to become a CLT.

Since 2017, I have worked with hundreds of people seeking out lymphatic work for conditions affecting the lymphatic system or support post-surgery.

The following are some conditions for which MLD is indicated:

  • Post-surgical edema from joint improvement or replacement surgeries

  • Post-surgical edema from cosmetic or appearance surgeries such as Liposuction, breast augmentation or reduction, arm lifts, tummy tucks, rhinoplasty, facelifts, and other cosmetic surgeries

"Brooke is the most caring and giving massage therapist that I have worked with in Asheville. She has done several deep tissue massages and recommend some myokinesthetic work on several recurring issues. I have suffered from peripheral neuropathy for about two years and after two sessions I noticed an extreme difference in the numbness all over my body. By the end of a few more sessions, the change in my symptoms was amazing! I would highly recommend all of her services!"  - Amanda Greene
