Become a qualified lymphoedema practitioner.
The Australian Institute of Lymphoedema is proud to offer an accredited course that gives you a qualification as a respected lymphoedema practitioner.
Becoming a qualified practitioner means that you will have the skills and knowledge in order to deliver specialised services to your patients.
Lymphatic drainage massage, for example, is one method used to treat lymphoedema. This type of massage is not the same as other forms of massage and needs to vary depending on the patients individual needs. As such practitioners learn in our courses how to deliver lymphatic drainage massage to patients with both normal (such as healthy patients undergoing liposuction) and abnormal lymphatic drainage (such as patients undergoing cancer treatments). This allows you to treat a wide variety of patients depending on where you wish to focus your clinical practice.
