ONCOLOGY MASSAGE

WHAT IS ONCOLOGY MASSAGE?

Oncology Massage Therapy is a specialized form of massage therapy that will address the unique and various needs of someone currently undergoing cancer treatment or with a history of cancer. Unlike traditional forms of massage, Oncology Massage gently supports blood flow, relaxation of physical tension, and emotional release.

Oncology Massage Therapists can adapt and deal safely with the many and varied side effects that may arise during the illness and its treatment including Lymphedema, lowered blood counts, fatigue, nausea, anxiety, wound sites, and surgical devices such as catheters, ports, and colostomy bags.

WHO IS THE TREATMENT SUITABLE FOR?

Oncology massage is recommended for cancer patients who are weak or with reduced energy levels due to the side effects of their cancer treatments. This massage technique uses gentle, slow strokes, and induces deep relaxation in the body that also helps to calm the mind. It is also a safe and complementary therapy for clients undergoing other allopathic treatments for their health issues.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BENEFITS?

  • Oncology Massage is deeply relaxing because of the gentle and slow strokes. The pace of the massage causes the mind to slow down and the client will often feel more present awareness and calm because of this.

  • Endorphins are produced during a massage, which can reduce pain in the body. Clients often report a feeling of well-being and reduction or cessation of pain. Endorphins use the same receptor sites as opioids - having a morphine-like effect on the body.

  • The production of serotonin and endorphins affects the health of a cell positively, as the "good stuff" is let into the cell. Massage causes the relaxation response that encourages these beneficial effects. These hormones have a natural analgesic (pain-reduction) effect on your body.

  • In various medical research studies, Oncology massage is effective for side-effects of cancer and cancer treatment such as pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, fatigue, and nausea.
