This form of massage combines specialized massage treatments and compassionate care to help clients manage the effects of cancer treatment.
Some of the benefits of massage include:
- Improved relaxation
- Better sleep

- Relief of anxiety
- Pain relief and management
- Relief of fatigue
- Relief of nausea
Many people do not realize that mental, physical, and emotional health are all interconnected. Massage helps to treat the physical symptoms of discomfort such as pain, tensions, and aches, but also helps the body to produce substances which decrease stress and anxiety, assist with better sleep, promote relaxation, fight depression, and can help to bolster or restore the immune system. All of this contributes to clients feeling better all around.
