What is massage?

Massage is one of the oldest therapies that exist and there are many types available. Not all types are suitable for those with cancer, in general gentle massage (therapeutic massage) appears to offer most benefit to those with a cancer diagnosis. We generally seek permission from your treating doctor before commencing massage.


Massage helps relieve muscle soreness, stiffness and spasms and also aids relaxation. It can improve sleep and may help to reduce stress in cancer patients.
