Oncology massage – Reasons to pursue treatment
Oncology massage frequently plays a role in palliative care at hospitals, hospices, and support groups for cancer patients. This is chiefly because it has been known to help:
- Relax the mind and body
- Relieve stress and tension
- Improve the flow (lymph) in the lymphatic system
- Enhance your mood
In fact, research from the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre in New York proved that oncology massage has a wide range of far-reaching benefits, including:
- 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 – Maldon-based Maypole Health’s approach
Here at Maypole Health, we administer a number of alternative therapies to help with various issues and ailments. However, oncology massage requires a unique approach in order to provide safe and suitable treatment.
Our oncology massage therapist Lucy Littlewood, who qualified in 2016, will carefully adapt existing techniques according to your form of cancer and the side effects you’ve been suffering from.
In order to tailor her treatment, Lucy may ask questions about 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.
