Oncology Massage

Oncology Massage is a gentle and nurturing massage that is performed in a safe and effective way. The techniques used are gentle and slow and are used to induce a deep relaxation in the body, leading to also calming the mind.

This style, obviously, benefits people with cancer patient. However, it is also a great treatment for people with other degenerative illnesses, the elderly, or for anyone who have any health issues that reduce your energy levels.

As a trained Oncology Massage Therapist, I have been taught to understand the science and pay attention to your physical, emotional and psychological needs. This treatment can be performed at any stage – during diagnosis, treatment, recovery, survivorship or palliative care.

Each treatment can have different issues we need to address depending on what stage you are at, and how you are feeling on that particular day. Each treatment we will make adjustments according to site, position and pressure. Most importantly, we ensure that we cause no harm.

Oncology Massage is shown to reduce the side effects experienced from conventional treatments of cancer and the symptoms of the disease process itself (Cassileth and Vickers, 2004)

We only offer this as a 60 minute treatment. And this includes discussion pre and post. Dependant on you, and where you are at, we will only ever do as much hands on as you can cope with.

 

How often should you get an Oncology Massage?

Again, this will all depend on you. What stage you are at and the reasons for coming in the first place. All this will be discussed in your first treatment.
