Oncology massage is a gentle, specialized modality of massage therapy that helps people manage their experience with cancer.
My oncology clients have reported a variety of benefits of massage such as a significant reduction of the pain and numbness associated with neuropathy. They also report better digestion, improved sleep patterns, and reduced depression and anxiety. Other advantages of oncology massage are reduced aches and weakness in muscles, less fatigue, more energy and increased relaxation.
What People Are Saying
I underwent 6 years of heavy-duty chemo, and Sheila’s excellent massages greatly reduced painful side effects, such as neuropathy. I currently get a massage every 2 weeks to counteract the aches and pains and fatigue from proton therapy. Sheila has been a Godsend. I wouldn’t want to fight this battle without her help.
