Oncology massage for cancer patients

Oncology massage for cancer patients

Life with cancer is a rollercoaster ride – both physically and emotionally. Forever Young Massage is here to alleviate some of the tension and stress with a specialised oncology massage for cancer patients, helping you relax during this difficult time.

What is oncology massage?

Oncology massage is suitable for clients in treatment, post-treatment and for those in remission. Treatments should be carried out by a fully trained professional – a general massage must be adapted to take account of the complications of cancer or treatment.

I completed my oncology massage course at Manchester’s specialised cancer treatment centre the Christie, so you can rest assured you’ll be in safe, qualified hands when you visit me for an oncology massage.

Before your massage I will carry out an assessment to find out more about your treatment history, any risks of clotting or compromised blood cell count, neuropathy, fragile tissue, medical devices and more – this is to ensure that I am aware of any techniques or areas to avoid, and to maximise your comfort.

What are the benefits of oncology massage?

Massage for cancer patients is associated with a range of benefits, both for physical health and mental wellbeing, including:

  • Helps alleviate anxiety
  • Promotes deep relaxation
  • Reduces depression
  • Minimises post-treatment fatigue
