How to know if your therapist is certified and why it matters.
Can you answer this question?
What credentials are used by a certified lymphatic therapist?
b.) No credentials are on the website but it states "lymphatic massage"
a.) LMT is a licensed massage therapist with no specialized training in lymphatic massage.
b.) NO credentials posted... If you earned the certification, wouldn't you be advertising it? This is most often an esthetician. Currently there is no certification courses available to estheticians in Arizona beyond lymphatic massage of the face and neck.
c.) Certified Lymphedema Therapist trained in complete decongestive training. CLT-LANA is currently the highest level of credentialling available for a lymphedema therapist in the United States.
This is a 135-hour course and trains providers to work with diseased and injured lymphatic systems. CLT training and complete decongestive therapy (CDT) is the worldwide gold standard in lymphatic care.
d.) CMLDT, trained 40 hours in manual lymphatic drainage for uncomplicated and generally healthy lymphatic systems.
Massage pricing rarely reflects the level of training, make sure you spend your money wisely and verify the level of education and training your therapist has completed.
More importantly, keep your body safe by using a CLT if you have an impaired lymphatic system.
