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.
For this reason, she may ask you 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.
