Manual lymphatic drainage is a common technique among many bodywork modalities, among them specific forms of Shiatsu (Seitai Shiatsu) and Swedish massage. By stimulating the lymph fluid towards the lymph nodes in the neck, armpits, and inguinal creases, a therapist can dramatically boost a persons immune system. These techniques usually only last about 25 minutes because the focus is about simply moving lymph fluid towards the lymph nodes. Although the technique can feel ticklish, the results are usually an immediate boost in energy and well being. Many practitioners will integrate some manual lymphatic drainage into their sessions, especially if the patient is starting to feel lymphatic drainage the effects of a cold or flu. Of all the therapeutic modalities, lymphatic drainage is perhaps the easiest, and fastest to learn. Its so easy that practitioners will sometimes train their clients so that they can preemptively  perform it on their children or elderly family members in order to quickly boost the immune system during the onset of a cold before it becomes a full blown sickness. This technique can also be performed on oneself daily, especially during cold and flu season. Occasionally, this form of bodywork is coupled with special liquid diet restrictions and performed three or more times daily by family members trained by a therapist. However, this is generally only in extreme cancer or other immune deficiancy cases where the patient has exhausted all allopathic treatments, including chemotherapy. The addition of a liquid diet, instead of solid food, frees up energy normally used in the digestive process for use by the immune system, but increases available nutrients, especially when a patient's diet isn't as healthy as it could be. Multiple daily sessions keep the lymphatic part of the immune system constantly  moving and draining, which helps the body fight harder and recover more quickly.
