Reasons for oncology massage

- Relax the mind and body
- Relieve stress and tension
- Improve the flow (lymph) in the lymphatic system
- Enhance your mood
Research from the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre in New York even found that oncology massage has the potential to provide:
- 47 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
Oncology message Colchester – What you need to know
Although similar to a regular massage, oncology massage will adapt certain therapy techniques for a more comfortable experience.
For this reason, it needs to be administered by a trained professional who knows how cancer and associated treatments including medication, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation affect the human body.
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.
Therefore, she may require you to answer questions about 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.
