"When we practice the basic strokes over and over again, our palpation skills deepen and we become aware of more and more under our hands. At a time where knowledge is highly promoted we don't want to forget the significance of what our hands can do and that building manual skills takes repetition and time." Sara Nelson, DPT, Kennewick, WA, 2013
"As a nurse, I thought my clinical training had prepared me well for entering into the world of lymph...I was mistaken. The deep dive we take into the lymphatic system with the Vodder program exceeded my nursing knowledge of what was known about the lymphatic system. This was especially true during the level II and III courses in which we were instructed by a physician to navigate further into the pathophysiology of lymphedema. I am very impressed with the level of education and most importantly the post certification/graduation support! You have truly been a wonderful resource! When I chose to do MLD and make my academic investment with the Vodder School I knew I was going to the "gold standard" program. However the ongoing support that you have given to me and my fellow classmates has been exceptional. It's so comforting to know that our support system is still available after we graduate!" Jeannine Capria,RN, MSN/IH, CHES, CLT, CT, 2012

Katie Hughes, MA, OTR/L, CLT-LANA, CKTP, Scottsdale, AZ
"My practice has gone from 5-10% MLD to 85% plus MLD in two short years being Vodder-certified. It is by far the most rewarding work I've ever done and what I feel confident 'bringing to the table' for these deserving ladies in need!"
Jet Dahlgren, LMT, Phoenix, AZ
