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?"

Oncology Massage does not focus on the movement of fluid it uses gentle pressures to make connections with the tissue. Most types of massage focus on the movement of blood and fluids and this is contraindicated for these types of massage. Thank you.
