An Oncology Massage therapist has specialist training to understand the impacts of cancer treatments on the body.
Therapists adjust the massage according to the client's symptoms.
Oncology Massage is a complementary therapy used alongside cancer treatment and is proven to reduce both common side-effects of treatment and the quality of life.
This is a very gentle style of massage with the client's comfort being the most important consideration.
Training in this area of specialisation varies, so be sure to ask your therapist about their knowledge and experience in this area.
