SelfMLD is an educational series designed to help you understand and improve your health through the proper self-care of your lymphatic system. 
Catherine Tatum CLT LMT
My entire professional life has been one of service. My passion in life is to help people understand how their body functions and how they can heal themselves. Knowledge is power. We should all be empowered with the ability to heal ourselves.
I have been helping people with their health for 30 years. I worked 13 years as a back office medical assistant working closely with physicians and 17 years as a massage therapist. Seven of those years I worked as the lead massage therapist in the oncology and lymphatic fields at Cancer Treatment Centers Of America, Goodyear AZ.
Since 2013 I have been treating and educating clients about their lymphatic system, I have been in private practice since 2016, and I am now branching out to help more people take control of their health.

How To Know If The Class Is Right For You...
Are you recovering from a serious illness?
Are you experiencing long haul symptoms?
Are you constantly getting sick?
Do you have a compromised immune system?
Do you feel bloated and blah?
Are you tired of waking up feeling swollen and puffy?
Do you battle fatigue?
Can you not lose weight?

If you are recovering from the virus and experiencing long haul effects.
Some people are experiencing longer than expected residual symptoms from getting and recovering from the virus that is making their life a challenge, coining the term, Long Hauler. On the flip side, some people are experiencing residual symptoms from receiving the vaccine.

When our body is exposed to external forces such as a virus or an injection of something into our system, our body's response is to remove the antagonist, and create healing. This healing process creates inflammation, and inflammation can create more illness. It can be a vicious cycle.

Self Manual Lymphatic Drainage can not heal the body of these residual symptoms, however, it can help remove the inflammation, toxins, and antagonists to allow the immune system to heal the body. My in-person clients are seeing a relief of their symptoms and with this program I know you can too.

You are looking to improve your health and the infection-fighting ability of your immune system.
Let's be real, if you don't have a vibrant immune system, you don't have good health. If the last couple of years have shown us anything, it has shown us that the difference between health and sickness, life and death, is the ability of our immune system to fight off deadly pathogens (viruses, bacteria, cancer). Our immune system is responsible for defending the body.

The lymphatic system is the body system that primarily supports and creates the immune system. It is the first line of defense as it transports a multitude of harmful substances out of the body. When the lymphatic system is sluggish, our immune system can become compromised, leaving us open to disease.

You want your detox program to work better.
The big word that everyone talks about is detoxification. It is a very important concept when promoting health. Toxins can compromise many bodily systems, and they can create inflammation all over the body. Toxins can be responsible for weight gain, or the inability to lose weight. They can lead to premature aging, a reduction of energy production, and lower your protection against oxidative stress. Failure of these body functions can increase your risk of diseases, like Cancer.

Choosing to engage in a detox protocol is a smart thing. However, if your lymphatic system is sluggish, it is harder for the body to expel the toxins in an efficient, timely manner. The lymphatic system is the primary toxin neutralizer of the body. The more efficient the lymphatic system moves, the quicker those toxins can find a way out of your body, and the quicker you will restore better health to all your body systems.

You have lymphedema, either from a primary or secondary cause.
Lymphedema is a disorder of the lymphatic system. When the lymphatic system is disrupted as when someone has lymph nodes removed due to surgical intervention such as cancer, or from organic dysfunction, lymphatic fluid can become stagnant and create swelling of the tissues. When not addressed, this fluid can get out of control, create distress in the tissues which can lead to loss of mobility in the area of the lymphedema, and skin infections that if not treated can result in debilitating illness.

Manual lymphatic drainage is a great tool for managing this condition. Although most insurance companies will reimburse for lymphatic services, therapists in hospitals and rehab facilities have started opting out of doing Manual Lymphatic Drainage to save time, to make their quotas for the month. But if asked, they would admit that they leave a huge piece of the puzzle out, by not doing a full treatment. Using this self protocol could be the difference in having a complete treatment session.

You have lipedema.
Lipedema is an actual fat disorder. Most doctors are not aware of this disorder and therefore diagnose their clients wrongly. Lipedema affects 11% of the female population and it is hereditary. It is also a hormone-driven condition that can start at puberty, get worse at childbirth, and at menopause. Women who have this disorder are characterized by having a thinner upper body and being disproportionately larger in the butt, hips, and legs.

You ask how lipedema is associated with the lymphatic system? Well, the superficial lymphatic system lays within the adipose (fat) tissue. The fat tissue can and does stress out the lymphatic system not allowing fluid to exit the tissues creating swelling (lymphedema). Manual Lymphatic drainage supports and helps the disorder, to support the legs.

You suffer from an autoimmune disorder and are looking for a way to manage it.
There are over 80 recognized autoimmune disorders. They attack many different body parts and systems, but the one main thing that they have in common is the nastiness of inflammation. There are two types of inflammation, acute and chronic. Acute inflammation is the kind you get when you injure yourself, like a sprained ankle. When we injure ourselves, the body responds with extra fluids and nutrients to feed the cells and heal the body. That is a good thing. The problem lies with chronic inflammation. The body needs oxygen to heal and thrive. When there is chronic inflammation, an overabundance of fluid, the cells can not breathe and heal.

I have found in my private practice that when I work with clients that have autoimmune disorders, relieving that extra fluid helps with their symptoms. They feel lighter, their pain resolves, they sleep better, they have better digestion, etc. Manual lymphatic drainage does not cure their disorder, however, life is easier when the symptoms are kept at bay.

You have systemic inflammation from chronic venous insufficiency.
When the vein valves in the legs improperly function it can cause a backup of fluid in the legs. Technically this is not lymphedema, however, Manual Lymphatic Drainage can greatly improve fluid retention. This is a condition that if not managed, can get out of hand causing skin changes, and possibly skin ulcers and cellulitis.

You are facing or have had a surgical procedure.
Having any surgical procedure done puts the body in a state of acute inflammation. Manual Lymphatic Drainage helps move the fluid out of the tissues so healing can happen quicker.
Manual lymphatic drainage for post-cosmetic surgery (lipo, fat transfer, etc) can help with pressure, pain, bruising, scar healing, and an overall feeling of lightness. Many knee replacement patients find that using MLD helps with the common leg swelling that happens right after the surgery, and long after healing has happened.

You are looking for an additional tool to help exercise recovery and cellulite reduction.
We all know the discomfort that comes with a heavy workout. The discomfort of the lactic acid can make you walk funny, retain fluid, and feel sluggish, which is not a lot of fun. But recent studies have shown that manual lymphatic drainage can reduce the lactic acid that builds up in the muscles. It can reduce post-workout swelling, and can improve the regenerative process.
Manual lymphatic drainage can also help with the appearance of cellulite by releasing trapped fluid in the areas underneath the skin.

You don't have access to an in-person lymphatic therapist or seeing one is cost-prohibitive.
Certified Lymphatic Therapists are getting a bit easier to find, but are still a rare breed of therapist. In most states, insurance will not pay for lymphatic drainage, or general lymphatic care unless there is a diagnosis of lymphedema. As I eluded to above, manual lymphatic drainage is a low priority for therapists that work at hospitals and rehab centers. If these therapy places would even see you for general lymphatic detox, which they won't, their cash price would be so high, that not many people could afford it.

More and more licensed massage therapists are taking advanced classes to help fill in the gaps between what hospitals charge and what insurance will pay for. However, I have seen private therapists charge from $70 for a half-hour to $125 for an hour. That can still be a lot of money for some people, considering that to get the body started, multiple sessions are recommended. Again, most likely cheaper than paying cash at the rehab facilities, but still too much for many people. Having a solid SelfMLD protocol to follow just makes sense.

Your health is your greatest asset. 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 their 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 and it becomes more and more important to learn how to heal ourselves.

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