    I really think there is something to massage therapy. Last night, Mrs. Mo went to bed around midnight, and I came to bed around 1:30. When I got in the room, it was completely dark, and she goes, "I'm still awake." That is my cue to massage her to sleep. Even though I have these catcher-mitt size hands, massaging people actually really wears out my hands. But it works for her every time, so you gotta do what you gotta do....

    I love massage. My husband has great hands for it too. I'll pay now again for a pro, but really, he is better than some of them.

    Well aside from the fact that touch of any kind has healing energy, the pushing on the muscles during massage brings blood flow to the injured area, which helps in healing.

    I read something interesting, too, about massage and smoothing your skin. Basically, lymph glands can build up fluid that contributes to the cellulite look. When you massage skin and muscles vigorously, you can promote the drainage of the lymph fluid. Below is an article along those lines:

    Yes, the lymphatic system doesn't have it's own pump. Muscle contractions help drain lymph. That doesn't necessarily mean formal exercise/weight training. Reciprocal arm swing when we walk pumps the lymph nodes in the arm pit area. Our legs moving when we walk pumps the nodes in the groin area.
