ADVANCED MLD is being held January 28-29-30. Follow this link for details.

Anne Bramhan visits Atelier Esthétique Institute of Esthetics – for three days – to teach Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), the Dr. Vodder Method from Austria.

A respected industry expert with more than thirty years of professional experience, Ms. Bramham will share her knowledge with us.

MLD consists of rhythmical movements using nothing but your fingertips. The lymphatic system is the secondary circulatory system known as the body’s defender and garbage collector.  Dr. Vodder’s Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) encourages the elimination of metabolic waste, excess fluid, and proteins while accelerating the flow of fresh oxygen and nutrients.

Working on the lymphatics of the face and neck, not the muscles, MLD has an entirely different technique, a gentle stretching of the skin – which can only be taught by an Expert Certified Dr. Vodder Instructor.  MLD is the perfect bridge between esthetics and therapy – a modality which delivers relaxation, rejuvenation, detoxifying drainage and skin healing. It is great to treat clients with puffy skin (due to sinusitis, smoking, allergies, a cold).  And for the swelling of the face and neck following plastic surgery, MLD is the only treatment able to be used with incredible results.


In addition to the basic theory behind MLD, and basic practical application, you will learn (theory and practical):

  • Function of the lymph system
  • Mobilizing lymph
  • Detoxification
  • Lymphatic vessels and their locations
  • Clinical case studies
  • Indications and contraindications

This is a 20-hour course, held over three days at Atelier Esthetique. At the completion of this course you will be awarded a certificate recognized by the Dr. Vodder School of Austria.

You also will be able to return to your spa and add a new service: “Detoxifying Drainage Movements for the Face and Neck.”

Testimonial from a MLD Student

“Ms. Hanson, the Basic MLD class was incredibly informative. I really feel like my confidence has risen tenfold. Anne was inspiring, comforting and warm. She jumped right in when we needed help, and was right there to give us a pat on the back when we were doing a good job. I was really happy that the class was so small, because I really felt like we each got individual attention from Anne that might not have been possible if the class were any bigger. Thank you so much for offering this wonderful class!”~ Beth Cohen
