Courses 2014-15

There are a number of UK based courses in the Casley Smith Method of MLD. Courses are available as accredited and non-accredited programmes of study and are delivered in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The courses are a minimum of nine days and are available to health care practitioners and fully qualified Vodder therapists who have successfully completed training in the treatment of people with mild and uncomplicated oedema (British Lymphology Society 1999). It is expected that applicants will be able to utilise their MLD skills in the treatment of people with lymphoedema both during and after the course. In concordance with current guidance (BLS 2006) there is a requirement for successful students to update their MLD skills every two years. There is a UK based database of Casley Smith therapists and it is recommended that successful students also register their training and latest update on the British Lymphology Society (BLS) website of practitioners. They can also register their training with MLDUK.

These courses involve a large practical component and students initially learn the technique on each other. This involves undressing and taking turns to act as models for massage practice. Teachers make every effort to provide a suitable private environment for this practical work and further information regarding the course content and requirements will be sent to successful applicants.
