Throughout this essay I will be looking to discuss and explain massage and the lymphatic system and how I feel they link well together as a specific treatment or therapy. I will begin by discussing a general overview of what massage itself entails and the different types of movements which can be used to create the wanted outcome. I will also look at how the lymphatic system works within the body and what the main uses of it are. By linking massage and the lymphatic system together a body therapy has been created which provides the client with many different effects and benefits. This form of massage is used in lots of different ways from relaxation to medical treatment and is beneficial to many types of client.
