What is Massage Therapy for Cancer Patients?
A growing number of healthcare professionals recognize massage as an effective non-invasive treatment to combine with conventional medical care. The American Cancer Society recommends massage therapy for patients with cancer to improve quality of life and to bring them comfort. Massage therapy is a powerful healing modality with many benefits for people with cancer.
The professional massage therapist offers cancer patients skilled touch and caring at an isolating time of their lives. Some healthcare professionals recommend massage as a complementary thearpy in cancer treatment.
In any disease, the massage therapist uses different massage techniques for different clinical situations. There is no “one size fits all” approach. The same is true when working with clients with cancer.
Always consult your physician before scheduling a massage if you have been diagnosed with cancer or are currently receiving treatments for cancer.
