Therapeutic massage has been proven to decrease pain and anxiety and can be an excellent therapy for a variety of conditions. For athletes, massage can be a beneficial part of training to reduce injury and improve recovery after long runs or hard workouts.
Oncology massage is Swedish relaxation massage that is modified for gentle pressure and comfortable positioning. This type of massage, when delivered by a trained therapist, is safe for any cancer patient at any stage of treatment.
