This  5½ day Manual Lymphatic Drainage Certification course is based on the techniques developed by Dr. Emil Vodder, Ph.D., MT. This is a gentle, non-invasive manual technique that has a powerful effect on the body. Research has proven its efficacy as a stand-alone treatment and in combination with other therapies.

Developed in France in 1932 by Emil and Estrid Vodder MLD has grown to be the most well known manual technique to assist lymph flow and aid in drainage of tissues.

 The skin is stretched and torqued in a specific manner, based on scientific, physiological principles that have proven to encourage lymph flow.  If performed correctly with the correct pressure, direction and speed, this can greatly enhance recovery and facilitate drainage.  It also has profound effects on systems in the body.

Therapists acquire excellent hand skills in the original Dr. Vodder method of MLD with our certified instructors.  Our expertly trained and certified Dr. Vodder instructors focus on you as an individual and help you to develop the skill required to attain the best possible results with every patient.

We not only teach the basic Vodder techniques but also a range of advanced techniques that enable you to apply MLD to orthopedic, burn, edema, dermatological and other applications.

BIOGRAPHY for Nicola McGill

Upon graduating as an Aromatherapist in 1999, Nicola McGill started her own Aromatherapy practice in Brentwood, England. It was here that she focused on supporting women with Aromatherapy during their Pregnancy, using aromatherapy as a supporting modality during each semester, labor and post natal recovery. She had the privilege of being able to be at the births of many children whilst using aromatherapy to support the mothers.

In 2003 she relocated to Bonita Springs in Florida where she continued with her work in private practice working with people looking to support their health and wellbeing on a Holistic Level.

In August 2006, she moved to Boulder, Colorado and continued her work at the Whole Health Wellness Center.

In May 2008, Nicola was and still is employed by Boulder Community Hospital as a part time Oncology Massage Therapist at their Center for Integrative Care, located in the Tebo Family Medical Pavilion, which is home to Rocky Mountain Cancer Center. Here she is able to support oncology patients on an inpatient and outpatient setting, with gentle massage techniques, reflex touch, lymphedema management and breast cancer rehabilitation. She works alongside other members of the centers team of complementary care practitioners, which also includes a Breast Health Navigator, to provide support and gentle healing to Cancer patients on the journey to recovery. She is involved with educational talks and discussions both at the hospital and in the Boulder community on Aromatherapy, Lymphedema Management, Oncology Massage and the importance of a more gentle approach with Bodywork for the Cancer Patient/Survivor

Although Nicola specializes in working with oncology clients, she also has the experience of working with a wide range of medical conditions, both chronic and acute, including conditions related to the respiratory, digestive, muscular-skeletal, nervous, and reproductive systems as well as skincare. Her main goal is to support her clients own healing mechanisms during times of illness, stress and emotional discomfort by choosing a modality that is best suited to their condition.

Her aromatherapy treatments combine the power of smell with the power of touch to promote and maintain both physiological and psychological well being, whilst Reflex Touch is a gentle yet powerful exploratory foot treatment that can restore balance and harmony to the whole body.

She also holds classes teaching parents and caregiver’s infant massage and discusses its importance in encouraging nurturing touch.
