This training is now part of our Advanced Practitioner Equine Integrative Support Therapies professional career course.

It is also included in Equine Kinesio Taping Part 2 CPD course.


EMLD is a light, skin-stretching massage that helps promote the movement of lymphatic fluid out of swollen areas with a specific focus on the lymph vessels to help the flow of lymphatic fluid.

Therapy is applied to the unaffected areas first, making it possible for the fluid to move out of the affected area, or “decongest” the region. It helps open the remaining functioning lymph collectors and move protein and fluid into them, as well as to help speed up lymph fluid flow through the lymphatics.

It is a gentle but powerful modality that helps to:

  • Promote the optimum functioning of the lymphatic vessels that lead to the circulatory system

  • Facilitate the removal of metabolic wastes, excess water, toxins and bacteria.

  • Reduce pain

  • Enhance activity of the immune system

  • Improve energy and increases cellular oxygenation and nourishment

With horses we can use EMLD on a number of conditions such as:

  • Prone to allergies

  • Swelling in the lower limbs

  • Swollen glands

  • Fungal / bacterial  infection

  • Acidity/gastric ulcers

  • Virus

  • Bites / stings

  • Toxicity

  • Laminitis

  • Lymphedema

  • Lymphangitis

  • Strangles

  • Lymphosarcoma

  • Box rest (as lymph flow is naturally stimulated by exercise)
