Cancer Patients Massage
Clients who are having cancer treatments are very often avoided by massage therapists, they’re not generally trained to treat patients with cancer, however, I’ve undertaken additional courses to understand the physical, mental and emotional needs of people with cancer.
Research has shown that massage of muscle and soft tissue does not spread cancer cells. Gentle massage can be used to relax and relieve muscle tension, it can help to lift mood, and some people find that it improves their sleep pattern.
Scientific studies have looked at the effects of various body-based practices on people having cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and surgery. These studies have shown that massage may reduce pain, fatigue, nausea, anxiety and depression.
As well as improving physical symptoms, some people with cancer say that having a massage:
Helps them to feel whole again
Restores a sense of self
Helps to ease muscle tightness caused by physical, mental or emotional stress
Improves circulation to extremities
Relieves feelings of nausea
Relieves oedema by improving the flow of lymph
Aids in reducing fatigue
Mental clarity and alertness
