Oncology Rehabilitation for Survivors
In addition to our other amazing treatments and programs, working with survivors is one of the many pieces to our life's work. This is why we are a center for Natural, Restorative Therapies.
An article from the cancer center at MD Anderson shared "Oncology massage is an approach to massage therapy based in both compassion and specialized massage treatments to help people manage their experience with cancer."
Studies also show that oncology massage helps improve quality of life in survivors. "Benefits include improved relaxation, sleep, and immune function as well as relieving anxiety, pain, fatigue and nausea." Writes Sat-Siri Sumler and Lorenzo Cohen, PH.D. "Oncology massage therapists are trained to meet people where they are in their experience with cancer and apply a highly individualized massage treatment to comfort, nurture and support them in their process."
They include "treatments are modified according to the full spectrum of cancer-related issues: the physical, psycho-social and emotional consequences of cancer. In addition, the person's individual goals are considered and aspects of the disease and cancer treatment side effects."
Schedule an appointment for Oncology Rehab under the Lymphedema Management and Oncology option on the "booking" tab.
I can't wait to meet you!
