I believe I've heard of this special kind of "massage".

"To administer a lymphatic drainage massage, the individual is positioned so that maximum exposure is given to the target area. Several slaps with the open palm are applied to the area for about two minutes, with occasional pauses to rub the area in a circular motion. The resulting heat, along with the vibration of the skin and rhythmic contractions of the gluteus muscles stimulates the draw of fluid into the capillaries. The absorption of fatty acids and subsequent transport of fat causes the "orange peel" roughness to the skin to disappear. This may take several sessions to accomplish. The massage can be effective not only with Grade 3 cellulite but can be used pro-actively for Grade 1 and 2. However, these treatments have no proven results, and may only create short lasting effects."

    The phrase "...while yelling 'Hyah, mule! Hyah!" belongs in there somewhere.

    That is, not surprisingly, one of the worst Wikipedia articles I've ever read.
