Quality of life & cancer
Cancer diagnosis is a shock, cancer treatment is a challenge, life after cancer is like an endurance test. We support you at each steps of the journey and particularly the latter when medical presence and emergency is fading away.
We offer Oncology massage, a specialized form of massage that ensures your safety and comfort. It works gently on the fascia, providing deep relaxation of the entire body. This experience may assist you at any stage of your cancer journey with:
– The opportunity to experience a peaceful feeling that affects your nervous system, immunity and sense of wellbeing
– The possibility of lessening the effects of cancer or treatment you may experience like pain, fatigue, anxiety, nausea, depression or disturbed sleep
– The potential of decreasing long term effects of treatment such as fatigue, depression, peripheral neuropathy.
Oncology Massage also provides benefits for carers or anyone suffering from chronic illness or looking for a gentle massage.
After a thorough health history, an individual treatment plan adapted to your current state of health will be discuss with you prior to the session. Your cancer treatment / history, energy and level of pain will be fully appreciated.
Does massage spread cancer? Research has shown that cancer is not spread by massage or body stimulation. The travel of cancer cells through the body (called metastasis) is rather a complex biochemical process. The circulation of lymph – from massage or other movement – does not cause cancer to spread – From Cancer Council NSW
“Happiness is not a destination, but a journey.
Dealing with cancer is both destination and journey.
Medicine focuses on the quality of the destination.
Oncology Massage focuses on the quality of the journey.”
