The power of nurturing touch has been well researched for many years. The Touch Research Institute or Miami has conducted over 100 studies on the positive effects of massage therapy. In these studies it has been shown that massage therapy alleviates symptoms of depression, reduces pain, reduces stress hormones and improves immune function.
Oncology massage is a specialised therapy which support people experiencing cancer. Sessions are modified, taking into account the physical and emotional consequences of cancer and highly individualised to support, comfort and nurture wherever the client is in their cancer treatment.
The therapy intend to help relieve the symptoms of the cancers or the side effects of the treatment prescribed by the clients’ consultant, such as pain, nausea and stress and is in no way a treatment or remedy for the cancer itself. It is my intention to work with your consultant and pain management team to ensure the best possible outcome.
