Oncology Massage is designed to improve the quality of life for people in cancer treatment, post treatment, and living long-term with cancer as a chronic condition. It aims to relieve common symptoms of cancer and side effects of treatment.
Benefits of Oncology Massage: Research suggests that oncology massage therapy can help ease pain, fatigue, nausea, anxiety and even depression. Clients tell us that it helps them slow down and rest, and improves sleep. It may also help reduce feelings of isolation, helping people feel better emotionally as well as physically. Oncology massage therapy provides a “vacation” from cancer and caner treatment, helping the body to rest and restore itself
