Oncology Massage

Because of its known benefits of  decreasing stress, pain, anxiety, depression and fatigue, massage can be of great benefit to those living with cancer. Well Within offers Oncology Massage with practitioners who have a special certification in working with cancer patients. They are trained specifically to make appropriate adaptations in massage sessions according to treatment type, stage and other applicable factors. Clients who receive Oncology Massage enjoy a safe, nurturing, and compassionate session with a customized focus on either relaxation, relief from muscle pain or tension, or some combination. Some studies show patients have also experienced improved sleep and immune function, as well as nausea relief (Sat-Siri Sumler and Lorenzo Cohen, Ph.D.) As stated by the Society of Oncology Massage, this specialized work is considered an “adaptation of massage to safely nurture body, mind and spirit of anyone who is dealing with cancer. [It] can benefit cancer patients at all stages of cancer, during and after treatment, in remission, cure or at the end of life.”
