“Breast cancer is not just a disease that strikes at women. It strikes at the very heart of who we are as women: how others perceive us, how we perceive ourselves, how we live, work and raise our families-or whether we do these things at all.”
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Each year, 1 in 8 women is diagnosed with breast cancer. More and more people are turning to massage therapy as a complimentary treatment to ease some of the symptoms of this disease.
Oncology massage can aid in curbing some of the emotional and physical side effects associated with cancer, improving the person’s quality of life. Therapists that practice oncology massage focus on pain and anxiety relief. The main goals of treatment are to help the client achieve more restful sleep, decrease pain levels, and improve overall mood and daily living.
