Oncology Massage is a specialist therapy for cancer patients provided by certified therapists to provide varying expert massage techniques in a light, gentle and deeply relaxing manner. A comprehensive history is taken of the your past and current stage of treatment. Massage techniques are altered depending on stage of cancer, touch tolerance, energy levels and medication the client may be on.
Therapy can be provided at all stages of the journey to allow for reduction in medication and treatment side-effect symptoms, to reduce muscular pain and help with muscle tone. Massage can help to increase appetite and stimulate correct function of the digestive system, boost energy levels and to regain control over your body whilst being taken into a deeply relaxed state.
I will work at your pace and we will discuss what you wish to gain from the session before treatment takes place. Oncology massage is a hugely successful and empowering treatment through the use off palpation, massage, stretching, rocking and mobilising.
