I am delighted to add oncology massage to my work.
Oncology massage is an approach to massage therapy based in both compassion and specialised massage treatments to help people manage their experience with cancer.
Oncology massage helps improve quality of life. Benefits include improved relaxation, sleep, and immune function as well as relieving anxiety, pain, fatigue and nausea.
As a trained oncology massage therapists I am able to create a highly individualised massage treatment to comfort, nurture and support people suffering from cancer and family members. Treatments are modified according to the full spectrum of cancer-related issues: the physical, psycho-social and emotional consequences of cancer. In addition, the person's individual goals are considered and aspects of the disease and cancer treatment side effects. Personal goals for receiving oncology massage can include the desire for a respite -- a relaxing pleasurable experience in the midst of everything that is going on
