Oncology massage is a massage therapy modality based in both specialized massage techniques and compassion. It's intended to help you manage your experiences during and following cancer treatment.
Massage therapy is known to provide numerous health benefits; however, for someone dealing with cancer, special training is required to meet the highly-individualized needs associated with the impact of cancer treatments, as well as dealing with the cancer itself. In oncology massage, modifications to traditional massage therapy techniques are used in order to safely work with potential complications of cancer and cancer treatment. Oncology massage can benefit anyone who has ever received cancer treatment, including those in active treatment, those in recovery, and Survivors.
Benefits of Oncology Massage:
Helps improve quality of life
Increase mental clarity
Increased immune function
Improved sleep patterns
Nurturing and support
Respite from the stress and worry of cancer treatment
