Oncology Massage is a comfort-orientated massage which is tailored for each individual from cancer patients in active treatment to those in recovery or survivorship. It is administered by Massage Therapists who have been specifically trained and have the awareness and expertise to modify and adjust conventional massage and to identify contraindications to treatment based on the person’s history, tumour sites and associated lymph nodes. It is a gentle, safe and mindful treatment that is designed to elicit the relaxation response in clients and to help with fatigue, stress and anxiety.
Massage Therapy can be beneficial to your mind, body and spirit during cancer treatment. It is a form of non-invasive, compassionate touch that helps the body to relax and to help people feel less like patients and more like people again.
