Why choose oncology massage?
Oncology massage is often used in hospitals, hospices, and at support groups as part of palliative care for cancer patients. The gentle, soothing, and supportive touch of oncology massage can help to:
- Relax the mind and body
- Relieve stress and tension
- Improve the flow (lymph) in the lymphatic system
- Enhance your mood
Scientific research also backs up the reported benefits of oncology massage, with the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre in New York finding that it can provide:
- 7 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 Witham – About our approach
In order to work safely with cancer patients, oncology massage therapists will adapt existing techniques. As you can imagine, this requires extensive, in-depth knowledge of what to do and what not to do.
Our oncology massage therapist at Maypole Health is the fully qualified Lucy Littlewood. She’ll only use massage therapy techniques that are appropriate for you.
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.
