I had a conversation with a masseuse yesterday. He mentioned how most of his clients have compromised lymphatic movement, and the first thing he teaches them is therapeutic breathing. So I asked him about breathing, specifically.  We know about breathing in through the nose, out through the mouth, getting a good tummy breath, right?  What he added was the importance of a full abdominal tightening/crunch which includes the butt and a kegel squeeze at the end of the exhale. Then the inhale is started by abdominal relaxation, then filling the lungs. I found it to be helpful.  - kcshreve
