Oncology message Chelmsford – What to expect
Oncology massage adapts existing massage therapy techniques in order to safely work with cancer patients.
However, it should only be administered by a trained oncology massage therapist, who knows the impact cancer can have on the human body and the side effects of medication, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and other forms of treatment.
At Maypole Health, our oncology massage therapist is Lucy Littlewood, who qualified in September 2016. She has the ability to modify massage techniques according to the type of cancer you have experienced and its adverse side effects.
To best serve your needs, Lucy may ask you questions regarding your cancer treatment 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.
