Oncology (cancer) massage

Oncology massage aims to ease pain, nausea, fatigue, anxiety and depression. Swedish, foot and light-touch massage are common modalities for alleviating the pain of patients with cancer.

How is Oncology Massage different from a "regular massage?"

Betty Shields (Sioux Falls, SD) on Sep 5, 2012
Oncology Massage is genital and very soothing and caring. You have to be very thoughtful of the pain they are going though and respect their comfort. Where as a regular massage you also have to be respectful with their comfort but you dont have to be as careful with them. But with a regular massage you also have to know what that person is going though too.
