Milady's Guide to Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Ramona Moody French
1401824722
July 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Lymph drainage massage is a technique utilized by estheticians and massage therapists to provide relief from edema, an accumulation of fluids in the tissues that causes swelling. This book provides a scientifically accurate explanation of the lymphatic system, the theory behind lymph drainage massage, and explains when it should be performed. The book also explains the application of lymph drainage massage to the needs of well clients, rather than focusing on pathology, since most massage therapists and estheticians will not be treating lymph edema disease in their work.

Book Description
Beginning with an exploration of the chemicals and cells of the lymphatic system, this volume of the Encyclopedia of the Human Body discusses the various components of the lymphatic system and how they work together to initiate the immune response, act as a secondary circulatory system, and transport select nutrients from the digestive system to the circulatory system. The lymph system, including lymph nodes and lymphatic circulation are explored and lymphatic functions of the spleen, appendix, and tonsils are discussed. The history of the research on the lymphatic system is presented and the future of research in this field is considered. Current controversies and dilemmas of scientists performing this research are explored. Lymphatic system disorders and diseases, and their symptoms and treatments are explored,...

Review
"The rapidly growing popularity of complementary therapies has created a vital need for the book you have in your hands. This volume will become a classic, for it breaks new ground in treatment, integrating basic research with clinical practice, and the reporting of new observations. Margaret McCarthy has thoroughly succeeded in her goal of writing for anyone, patient, physician, complementary therapist, or medical researcher. Case studies are fascinating documentaries of real people facing difficult health problems, struggling to find relief. McCarthy describes her cases with a clear and engaging style, referencing and integrating relevant data from published science. Anatomic terms are thoroughly described and a glossary makes it an easy read for anyone. Her clinical discoveries can help all of us understand ourselves."...

Dressed To Kill: The Link between Breast Cancer and Bras
Sydney Ross Singer, Soma Grismaijer
1930858051
March 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Singer and Grismaijer have collected striking (but preliminary) evidence that bra-wearing may be a major risk factor associated with breast cancer: women who wear tight-fitting bras 24 hours a day are 125 times more likely to have breast cancer than women who do not wear bras at all. Their interpretation is that tight clothing inhibits the proper functioning of the lymphatic system (an internal network of vessels and nodes that flushes wastes from the body) and leads to a buildup of carcinogenic compounds in the constricted areas. Although it must be emphasized that their studies are preliminary, still controversial, and definitely need to be followed up with detailed analyses of correlative factors (do these women have higher rates of smoking? do they have less-healthy diets?), this book should be read by anyone...

Normal Lymph Node Topography
W. Bohndorf (Foreword), et al
3540208577
August 17, 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The topography of the normal lymphatic pathways is comprehensively presented here in axial CT scans. Schematic figures corresponding to each scan make it easy to understand the topography. The main chapters cover the head and neck, the thorax, the abdomen and the pelvis. A short introduction to the lymphatic drainage system is also given. The additional description of the lymphatic nodes for every organ enables the reader to analyze CT scans systematically for enlarged lymph nodes. This atlas contains information vital for radiographers, who must determine how normal and pathologically enlarged lymph nodes are connected with certain lymph node groups in order to correctly stage tumors and their metastases. For radiotherapists, knowledge of the exact topography of a lymphatic drainage region will help to determine the...
