Coming to terms with a cancer diagnosis, whether it's you or a loved one, is a difficult time in anyone's life. Suddenly you're spending a lot of time in hospital, there are blood tests and scans and some pretty horrible treatments that can really take it out of you.
Increasingly massage is something that is being recommended by doctors as a way for people who are dealing with cancer to relax.
Oncology Massage is incredibly gentle. It is generally shorter in duration (around 30 minutes per session) and takes into account the areas of your body affected by cancer plus any side-affects of tests and treatments you are having such as surgery scars, radiation burns, lymph node removal, ports, catheters etc.
If you're curious about cancer massage for yourself or know someone who you think would benefit from this treatment, feel free to get in touch or share this page with them.
