Meade Steadman Featured in Two New Lymphatic Massage Continuing Education Courses, MASSAGE MagazineJumozy is offering two new courses on lymphatic massage: Lymphatic Massage for the Body (4.5 massage continuing education hours) and Lymphatic Massage for the Face & Neck (2.5 continuing education hours).

Lymphatic massage, used in both the beauty and medical fields, is one of the few modalities that has been extensively researched. It is a primary tool used to manage lymphedema, as well as to maintain good health by increasing blood and lymph circulation. Since lymphatic massage uses such gentle techniques, it can also be safely incorporated in many treatments, including facials and cellulite reduction.

In Jumozy’s comprehensive online courses, expert massage therapist and instructor Meade Steadman demonstrates step by step how to provide lymphatic drainage massage therapy. In step-by-step video demonstrations, Steadman shows the strokes used in lymphatic massage and demonstrates a routine for providing manual lymphatic drainage to promote lymphatic flow. This approved continuing education course also includes benefits and contraindications, an overview of the lymphatic system, getting started, lymphedema, post-treatment recommendations, and how to incorporate lymphatic massage in other modalities.

The lymphatic system is a crucial player in the body’s ability to ward off disease and heal from injury. According to some estimates, up to 70 percent of chronic illnesses, including cancer, result in part from lymphatic congestion. The lymphatic system works in conjunction with the circulatory system. However, unlike the circulatory system, the lymphatic system has no central pump. Its movement is dependent on muscular contraction, breathing, movement and manual manipulation, such as massage. Lymphatic massage, also called manual lymphatic drainage or lymph drainage massage, can increase lymph flow by as much as 20 percent. By using a sequence of strokes and a light pressure, massage stimulates the contraction of smooth muscles in lymph vessels.

The course is broken down into small, manageable units, with quizzes to test and reinforce knowledge. At the end of the course, upon satisfactory assessment scores, students can immediately download a certificate of achievement and attach it to their resume.

Steadman is a licensed massage therapist and instructor for the Myotherapy College of Utah and the Myotherapy Institute of Massage. He is also the featured expert in many award-winning instructional videos on various massage modalities. He has been a guest lecturer at the University of Utah, and has been published in A Massage Therapist’s Guide to Pathology (4th Edition) and Massage and Bodywork Magazine.
