Why You Should Join Michelle

in the classroom

  • What is MLD?

    MLD is a very specific massage technique (timing, pressure and direction) which helps to ensure our bodies ability to rejuvenate and establish resistance to all types of stress.

  • Is MLD like deep tissue massage?

    It is not a muscular massage but a harmonious manual treatment using mild mechanical stretching of the connective tissue to facilitate decongestion of lymph ducts.

  • What will MLD bring My clients?

    MLD allows regenerative fluid to flow and improves circulation and toxin removal as well as carrying vital substances to areas where it is needed, thus hastening healing times.

In the classroom

Michelle is a passionate educator. (Read more about her passion here) She endeavors to bring that passion to the classroom everytime she presents.

Michelle believes that teaching is a collaboration of both teacher and student.
The role of the teacher is to support the student to grow into their learning, and the role of the student is to be curious, ask questions and apply their knowledge in the outside world.

Michelle has 3 live workshops that build the cornerstone of her teaching. Combining her passions and her skills. 

The first is Manual Lymphatic Drainage For Your Everyday Clinical Practice. 

Designed to give Massage Therapists and Bodyworkers the necessary tools to understand and apply this gentle yet powerful technique to their clients as soon as they finish the workshop. 

Unlike, other MLD techniques, Michelle has designed the training to be able to apply in a number of different circumstances - not JUST when the lymph system is not working correctly.

  • What style of MLD is this?

    This style of MLD is my own unique way to deliver it. Over the years I worked on many clients and saw results and was able to see what works and what doesn’t. It is tried and tested, and it considers the complete comfort of both the therapist and the client during the delivery.

  • How is it different?

    It is different to other styles in the sequence of the delivery and also in the fact that it considers a very important element, that being the comfort of the practitioner.

  • Why two days instead of the usual four/five days?

    The reality is that other courses are longer as there is more practice time in class for each sequence. In my two-day course each sequence is guided through one practice and then the onus is on you to keep up the practice once the class is done. There are excellent resources to support students post class so that routines are not lost.

  • Why study with Rhythm?

    I love teaching. I love helping students to understand their own potential and seeing that ‘ah ha’ moment inspires me to do a great job of delivering this course – every time! I have been teaching this for over 17 years and I am still in contact with students from many years ago – assisting them to feel supported and assisted with any tricky client situations that may arise for them.

  • What can I expect to learn?

    By the end of this two-day certification course, you’ll possess the ability to understand and perform a full lymphatic drainage with confidence and skill.

  • Can I claim Education Credits with my association?

    Absolutely. The MLD 2 day course has been designated with the following points from the major Australian and International Associations: MMA - 20 AMT - 70 ATMS - 12 ANTA - 15 RMTA - 12 NHPC - 15 MTANS - 8 MTAS - 16 MTAA - 17
