Manual Lymph Drainage: Working with the Lymph System After Cancer Treatment
September 25 @ 9:30 am - September 27 @ 5:30 pm$20 – $395
Instructor: Juul Bruin<br>
CEU: 21 hands-on
Lymphatic massage is a gentle technique that is easy on the practitioner’s body – yet has a very powerful healing ability to decongest tissues, free stagnation and restore health.
Class Goal: Students will learn the full-body protocol of manual lymph drainage and specific protocols for breast cancer, ovarian, uterine, and prostate cancer. Hands-on learning will be supported with the knowledge and understanding of the lymph system, the effects of cancer treatment and appropriate treatment options.
In this class, you will learn what happens when pathways of the lymph system have been interrupted and how lymphedema develops. You will understand how to distinguish primary lymphedema from secondary lymphedema. We will discuss how to work with a compromised system after breast, ovarian, prostate and other cancers and how to navigate different pathways to relieve patients of edematous tissues. For massage therapists, this will deepen your knowledge of how to work with cancer and lymphedema patients with a compromised lymphatic system.
In addition to the lecture components on the function of the lymph system and how it is affected by cancer treatments, you will learn the full-body protocol of manual lymph drainage, and specific protocols for breast cancer, ovarian, uterine, and prostate cancer.
This class is considered a 21 CEU Hands-On class, with a minimum of 70% of the class hours dedicated to hands-on learning. You will leave this class with a comprehensive understanding of how to work with the pathways of the lymph system. For more details, you will find the class schedule below.
Juul Bruin will also provide an introduction to the use of bandages and compression wear for clients.

” I worked day to day with Juul Bruin for 7 years. There are some people that are born healers and she is one. Her tools are her formidable hands, heart and intuition. She is sensitive and caring in a warm and committed way. She is gentle and careful in the ways of the traditional archetypal healer. She is patient and thoughtful as only someone with abundant grace can be. You may trust her absolutely.” Michael C. Sharp, MD
“I took the Lymph Massage, Protocol for Detoxification and Minor Pathologies with Juul Bruin over the weekend in Wilmington and I must say I am amazed! Juul is such a kind and intuitive instructor who has an obvious passion for manual lymphatic drainage and wants to encourage others to learn such a valuable skill. As a bonus, I went down a pants size and ended up losing almost 10 pounds from all of the bodywork I participated in! (7 of which were still gone the following day). Who knew I was carrying excess fluid in my lower extremities? I feel great, have a glow to my skin, and am inspired to continue reducing the toxins in my body as well as choosing healthier food options to increase my wellness!” Jennifer Collins
