An Introduction to the Lymphatic System

The lymphatic system is part of the immune system. Discover its anatomy and function which is often not covered in-depth in anatomy training. You’ll learn to identify common pathologies and dysfunctions of the lymphatic system that may present in clinic, and how we can use Bowen Therapy to work with them. Together, we’ll explore simple lifestyle advice to help your clients become more self-sufficient, and learn how you can work with people with lymphoedema, and post-cancer surgery and treatment.
