# 2

Venolymphatic drainage with an osteophatic approach
(hand-on course)

The insufficient transport capacity of the lymphatic system leads to interstitial fluid accumulation, that is, to edema.

After a congestive phase, the interstitial fluid organizes, the tissues becomes harder, less pliable, and morphological changes arises.

These changes are not only superficial but affects also the deep tissues and the fascias.

Learn how to promote the wash-out of proinflammatory substances and waste products through venolymphatic pump techniques, keeping the interstitial fluid in motion. How to treat and stimulate the organs responsible for excretion and detoxification.

Stimulate the diaphragms. Release of articular restricts, dissolving adhesions to the collagen network through miofascial techniques. Perceive the body rhythm. Organize a treatment schedule.

Hands-on practice.
