Your lymphatice system is your immune system

One of the clinically proven facts about massage therapy is it’s effect on enhancing the immune system. In a study by the University of Miami School of Medicine (Natural killer cells and lymphocytes increase in women with breast cancer following massage therapy by Hernandez-Reif, et al.) research showed conclusively that massage therapy increases the amount of natural killer cells and lymphocytes in the body. These cells are a key part of the body’s immune system.
