Oncology Massage

Oncology massage is a specialized form of massage therapy that takes into consideration the physical & emotional needs of those living with cancer. It involves modified techniques to ensure safety, comfort, & relaxation for people going through cancer treatments or who are in recovery from it. Oncology massage can provide many benefits, including reducing stress & anxiety, improving sleep quality, relieving muscle tension & pain, enhancing circulation, improving self-image & promoting relaxation.

One of the most important aspects of oncology massage is that it is tailored specifically to each person’s individual needs. Taking into account any medications or treatments they have had as well as other physical changes caused by cancer itself (such as neuropathy) & making adjustments based on those needs. The therapist will also consider any emotional concerns the person may have & adjust their massage accordingly.

Oncology massage can help to reduce pain, improve the body’s ability to heal, relax tense muscles, stimulate circulation & lymphatic flow, help with fatigue & reduce stress hormones in the body. It also helps to provide emotional support by allowing people to connect with another human being who understands what they are going through.

This type of therapeutic approach has been shown to be beneficial for many patients going through cancer treatments, including chemotherapy or radiation therapy. It can provide a much-needed reprieve from these difficult treatments & allow people to feel more relaxed & at ease during this challenging time.
