Oncology massage provides both physical and emotional support to people dealing with cancer. Here at Spawell, we approach clients with a cancer history with careful consideration, follow specific guidelines, and make all necessary adjustments and modifications to ensure your visit is as pleasant and relaxing as possible.
Benefits of Oncology Massage
Benefits of massage for persons with cancer include pain control and relief from depression. Massage has been effective in reducing nausea, eliminating insomnia, promoting relaxation, reducing anxiety, increasing body awareness, and helping to restore a positive body image. Massage provides relief from muscle tension, spasms, and fatigue. Further effects of massage include improved lymph movement, reduced edema and swelling, better digestion and elimination, better flexibility, an improved outlook on life, and enhanced self-esteem.
