At Balance Massage and Wellness, we treat a variety of conditions. We are very excited to start offering oncology massages for our clients affected by cancer. We believe that everyone deserves the chance to feel relaxed and healthy. There are several types of benefits of oncology massages, here are just four examples
- General Benefits
Massage therapy can help with a lot of conditions, some that cancer patients could especially benefit from. These things include deep relaxation, reduced stress, improved sleep, eased constipation, increased alertness and mental clarity, reduced anxiety, less nausea, and reduced pain.
- Following Surgery
After a surgery, there are a whole other world of conditions that massage therapy can address. Some examples are: easier recovery from anesthesia, reduced post-surgical pain, improved mobility and appearance of surgical scars, reduced swelling, improved range of motion, and easier adaptation to implants and expanders.
- Following Radiation or Chemotherapy
For patients that receive these treatments, massages can reduce anxiety in advance of and during treatment, reduce post-treatment fatigue, improve appetite, and improve peripheral neuropathy.
- Emotional Benefits
Massages can help anyone on an emotional level, but cancer patients in particular can receive extra benefits from oncology massage. They can experience decreased anxiety, decreased depression, improved body self-image, restored hope, and satisfaction in actively participating in a part of the healing process.
