Massage for Cancer Patients

Oncology Massage is a specialized form of bodywork geared toward addressing the complex needs of cancer patients.

“The oncology massage therapist will closely examine the cancer history and treatment the patient has undergone in order to fully customize a massage session that will enhance the healing process using a compassionate touch and precise massage guidelines based on the client’s needs,” says Ilene Lopez, massage therapist. “In some cases having a clear communication line with the patient’s doctor paves the way for a safe yet specific plan of action that will promote their well-being and ease their cancer symptoms.”
