Masso Institute is privileged and delighted to once again present the Lymphoedema Training Academy’s 5-Day Course on Fluoroscopy-Guided Manual Lymphatic Drainage (FG-MLD).

LTA will hold their internationally-recognized training of the Fill & Flush Technique at Masso Institute, presented by LTA’s founder, Jane Wigg (RGN, MSc), and supported by Masso Institute’s own Veronica Yap (RMT).

The 5-Day Course

LTA's Fluoroscopy-Guided MLD course will provide you with a thorough understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system, and enable you to holistically assess and diagnose patients with lymphoedema. You'll be able to design and implement an appropriate research and evidence-based management strategy that's tailored to the patient, and be able to select from a range of therapies and new innovations.

FG-MLD is one of the most researched evidence-based methods of Manual Lymph Drainage. It has proven effectiveness in practice, and enhances the outcome for patients.

What is FG-MLD?

We know that the lymphatic system of the body carries substances vital to the body's defenses (white blood cells, for instance), and processes and filters the body's waste products (such as damaged cells and toxins).

Medical or Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD for short) is a gentle technique for massaging and stretching the skin to stimulate the flow of fluid within the lymphatic system.

Fluoroscopy-Guided MLD uses Near Infrared Imaging to visualize the superficial lymphatics in real time. As explained on LTA's website, it allows "mapping of functional lymphatic collectors, the observation of dermal rerouting areas, dermal backflow areas and functional substitution pathways", and also for "the mapping and the identification of the lymphatic system and ensures that the therapist knows the best drainage pathways to be used for the patient."

This is an advanced-level course, and so it's only available to lymphoedema-trained healthcare professionals and MLD therapists.

Successful students will receive a Certificate of Practice confirming they are fully qualified Lymphoedema Training Academy FG-MLD Therapists.

And it's all done within a fun and relaxed environment! For more detail about the course, please visit LTA’s Singapore Fill & Flush course page.
