Massage, a technique that involves the manual manipulation of the muscles and joints, has been used to ease aches and pains, promote relaxation, and improve mood for millennia. Oncology massage is a more recent form of this ancient therapy, used for the treatment of people living with cancer. If you or a loved one is living with cancer and interested in receiving massage therapy, make sure to find a therapist trained in oncology massage.
Massage during cancer or cancer recovery has many benefits, including
Treatment of neuropathy
Strengthened immune system
Your oncology massage therapist will conduct a thorough medical review prior to your first session, accommodating any related issues such as surgeries, side effects of treatment, blood cell counts and medical devices. Every oncology massage – and patient – is unique.
