MEDICAL THERAPY

If you are undergoing chemo or other biological therapies, massage can help the medicines travel throughout your body more quickly and effectively. After a day in the doctor’s office, a gentle massage can ease the stress of procedures, helping you to sleep more easily and soundly, thus allowing you to feel better one treatment to the next.

The soothing and aromatic oils will relieve the dryness of skin in areas one cannot easily reach, creating a better feeling of well-being. Even the digestion can be improved with an abdominal massage.

Studies show that manipulation of the body’s muscles and other soft tissues can reduce nausea, pain, fatigue and anxiety associated with cancer and its treatments. Other research has found that people who receive massage after surgery experience fewer symptoms of depression. Some common ailments that also benefit from massage therapy are sciatica, fibromyalgia and migraine headaches.

Check with your doctor to see if this is right for you.
