Your Health is your Greatest Asset

Take control of your health NOW!

No doctor has ever healed anyone of anything in the history of the world. 

The human immune system heals, and that is the only thing that does.


Our bodies are forever under the strain of exposure to the environment, our food, water and the air we breathe. Stress, worry, and stagnation in these uncertain times can also take its toll.

Stressors to the body can cause systemic inflammation, and toxin build-up, which can then lead to disease and premature aging. 

As the quote above describes, the immune system is THE single biggest factor in fortifying our health. The building blocks of our health lie within the efficient functioning and vibrancy of our immune system. Our immune system is responsible for defending our body against everything from the common cold and flu to the ravages of cancer. Not enough can be said for protecting this vital system for living and enjoying a long robust life. 

In these difficult times, when we are worried about our health and the health of our loved ones, we need to understand that our health is clearly in our own hands.

With our options for hands-on healing by others limited at this time, it becomes more and more important to learn how to heal ourselves.


How I Can Help

When Dr. Google and Dr. YouTube are more confusing than helpful

Many of my in-person clients start down the proverbial internet rabbit hole after hearing that taking care of the lymphatic system is a good thing. They then tell me that they become very confused by the plethora of information that they find. They try to piece together a protocol, not knowing all the parts to the puzzle.

They ask their doctor, and unfortunately are very disappointed when their doctor is dismissive or clueless about how to advise them moving forward in the care of their lymphatic system and immune health. You see, the mainstream medical community is all about putting out fires. Not all, but most medical providers think in terms of (pill, shot, surgery). Their skills do not lie within the realm of prevention and holistic healing.

I live in a part of the country that has a large winter visitor population. My clients tell me many stories of trying to find a competent Lymphatic Therapist in their general vicinity. For some, the travel times of 2 hours plus, deter them from getting services. I have many clients who see me during their winter stay and do not get services the whole time they are in their hometowns. If I had a nickel for every time I have been asked to move to the midwest somewhere...I could retire.

The right balance of function and protocol

What I strive for in my in-person education as well as my intention in this online class is to share enough of the medical and physical function of the lymphatic system to help you get a strong understanding of the lymphatic system, without getting lost in the minutiae and confusing medical jargon as well as not brushing over the important things to know. I also wanted to make sure that the protocol was complete without making it complicated. I strive to always KISS (keep it simple silly), and what I have created is what I feel is the perfect combination.  I hope you feel that same way.

What to expect

The information in this class is what I teach my clients every day. This class was put together by me. I am not a videographer and  I am not a slick marketing professional. I wanted to keep this class simple and inexpensive to reach as many people as I can. Please know that my sincere wish is that you will find this class a great tool to put in your toolbox on your path to better health. 

I have spent my whole adult life in the healing arts. I have always been a person with the heart to serve. This is the intention of this online class. I was driven to complete this class to provide people around the world with another tool to increase their level of health.

Benefits of taking this class


This class is for you if

  • You are looking to improve your health and the infection-fighting ability of your immune system
  • You are looking to open the avenues of elimination before any detoxification protocol
  • You have lymphedema, either primary or from a secondary cause
  • You have lipedema
  • You suffer from an autoimmune disorder and are looking for a way to manage it
  • You have systemic inflammation from chronic venous insufficiency
  • You are facing a surgical procedure of any kind
  • You do not have physical access to an in-person lymphatic therapist
  • You are looking for another option to the high cost of or long distance to see a therapist

What you could experience after doing Self MLD

  • Improved ability of the immune system to ward off infection
  • Fight an infection if you get one
  • Speed up healing and recovery from illness
  • Reduce systemic inflammation and unwanted fluid retention
  • Boost weight loss
  • Improve cellulite, skin swelling, scar tissue, acne, and stretch marks

  • Relieving insomnia

  • Alleviating arthritis pain

Understanding not only what to do, but why.

I will explain in straightforward language why taking care of the lymphatic system is an amazing self-care technique that will go a long way to improving and sustaining your health.    It is great to learn how to do something, but I find that when someone takes the time to explain to me WHY I am doing something, I am more inclined to follow through.    When we understand how the body works the way it does, and how we are responsible for our self-care, we can share this with our loved ones to help them nurture and protect their health.

**Please Note Before Purchasing this Class**

Catherine is great. She takes a lot of time explaining what she's doing, and why, and goes out of her way to help you understand how to manage your condition. --AN  

Catherine is amazing, such a wealth of knowledge. She is a great teacher. I feel so much better equipped to manage my health. --PT

Catherine is very knowledgeable in the field of Lymphatics! I have learned so much about how the system works and how I can assist it getting healthier. The home protocol works great. I never knew. --JP 

After taking this class I realized that I didn't fully understand the lymphatic system with the information that I had gathered across the internet. I have a strong grasp now. Catherine explains it clearly and the protocol is so easy that I can do it everyday. --MT

My Naturopathic doctor suggested I see a lymphatic therapist. The closest therapist was 2.5 hours away and booked out 3 months. I found this class and feel confident that I am able to do this for myself at home. It was a lot cheaper than going to a therapist too.--PS
