The American Cancer Society says…….
According to the American Cancer Society, “massage conducted
by a trained, licensed professional is considered safe, as is
myotherapy. However, pressure that is improperly applied to
muscles or applied in the wrong places may increase pain.” Dr. Lisa
Corbin, University of Colorado Health Sciences, The Center for
Integrative Medicine states, “massage therapy should be accepted
and condoned as a potentially beneficial intervention for
symptomatic relief in patients with cancer, and it can be safely
incorporated into conventional care of cancer patients.”
The side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatment can be
fatigue, pain and anxiety. A safe and appropriate massage should
cause none of those situations, but create a time to feel
comfortable and calm. With proper training in the precautions and
contraindications of massage for the patient living with cancer, a
safe and effective therapy session can relieve pain, decrease
muscle tension, decrease anxiety before treatments. Receiving a
massage during chemotherapy or after radiation treatment can give
a general feeling of well-being and feeling cared for.
Communication between the physician, patient and trained
Massage Therapist gives the best opportunity for the patient to
have the safest massage for their type of cancer.
