Oncology massage Basildon – What you need to know

Oncology massage is often used in hospitals, hospices, and at support groups as part of palliative care for cancer patients. The gentle, soothing, and supportive touch of oncology massage can help to:

  • Relax the mind and body
  • Relieve stress and tension
  • Improve the flow (lymph) in the lymphatic system
  • Enhance your mood

Scientific research also backs up the reported benefits of oncology massage, with the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre in New York finding that it can provide:

  • 7 per cent improvement in pain levels
  • 42 per cent improvement in fatigue levels
  • 59 per cent improvement in anxiety levels
  • 51 per cent improvement in nausea
  • 48 per cent improvements in reports of depression
  • 48 per cent improvements in problems such as shortness of breath, memory problems, dry mouth, and disturbed sleep

Maypole Health’s oncology massage therapist Lucy Littlewood qualified in September 2016 and has been providing quality treatment ever since. She’ll only use massage techniques that are suited to your personal situation and circumstances.

To identify the right treatment, Lucy may ask about your cancer history, tumour site or metastasis, compromised blood cell counts, lymph node involvement, medications, vital organ involvement, blood clot risk, fragile or unstable tissue, use of medical devices, fatigue, neuropathy, changes in sensation, and late effects of treatment.

To find out more, get in touch with Maypole Health today.
