Cure your cancer with oncology massage therapy!
What is an Oncology Massage?
An oncology massage is a customized massage treatment to meet the needs of patients who are in treatment for cancer or have a history of cancer treatment.
An oncology massage therapist uses massage techniques strategically based on your needs. In many cancer centers, oncology massage is now available as a complementary treatment for cancer. In this sense, massage is used to help with cancer symptoms and treatment side effects rather than as a cancer treatment in and of itself (as chemotherapy or surgery would be).
Is an Oncology Massage Safe for Patients?
No matter what stage you are in your cancer treatment journey, an oncology massage therapist knows what methods and techniques benefit your fast recovery. Indeed, oncology massage is safe for patients. Massage therapy has been shown in studies to be beneficial for cancer patients both during and after treatment. Massage therapy can help patients cope with many of the negative physical and emotional symptoms of cancer and the side effects of cancer treatment.
