Oncology massage information and advantages
Seeing as oncology massage can play a major role in palliative care for cancer patients, it is commonplace in many hospitals, hospices, and support groups. It can help:
- Relax the mind and body
- Relieve stress and tension
- Improve the flow (lymph) in the lymphatic system
- Enhance your mood
There has even been compelling research conducted by the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre in New York that suggested oncology massage may result in:
- 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 massage Essex – About our treatments
In order to provide safe and suitable treatment, oncology massage will adapt existing techniques with an emphasis on soothing, supportive therapy.
However, this can only be administered by a qualified oncology massage therapist who understands the impact cancer and its many treatments including medication, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation have on the human body.
Here at Maypole Health, we put our faith in Lucy Littlewood, who qualified as an oncology massage therapist in September 2016. She knows exactly what to do when treating cancer patients and those who are suffering from the adverse side effects of treatment.
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.
