The following article is everything you need to know about investing in and receiving this massage.
What is an Oncology Massage?
Some people fighting cancer invest in an oncology massage. An oncology massage is not a typical massage. A massage therapist undergoes special training in order to serve those individuals with compromised immune systems. Here at Therapeutic Medical Massage, our massage therapist Aruna specializes and has professional experience working with cancer patients and providing oncology massages. When working with a cancer patient, she provides service with slow, gentle, and mindful hands, with the intention to bring relaxation and well-being. Further, Aruna cares deeply for her clients and ensures that they will have a relaxing and enjoyable massage experience.
Oncology Massage Benefits
Information gathered from research studies indicates that massage incorporated into the care of cancer patients helps reduce anxiety, stress and pain, and promotes a relaxation response. Further, individuals going through cancer treatments feel nurtured, loved and reconnected with themselves. Massage helps not only physically, but emotionally as well. The oncology massage promotes a relaxation response and reduces stress, anxiety, insomnia, pain, fatigue and psychological distress. Lastly, the massage boosts the immune system, restores energy and soothes depression.
Oncology Massage from Therapeutic Medical Massage
Aruna specializes in providing oncology massage services. She learned Healing Touch and served Bethesda North Hospital patients as a volunteer. This experience helped her significantly when she was asked to provide hand massages to oncology patients at the hospital. Further, this experience helped her build relationships with the nurses and physicians. She learned that people diagnosed with cancer get poked, prodded, injected, and burnt by radiation. Therefore, when she entered cancer patients’ rooms, she made sure to provide a gentle, compassionate massage. The patients appreciate the compassionate touch and feel reconnected to their body, mind and spirit. That experience gave Aruna so much satisfaction knowing that she got to make a tiny difference in their life in a positive manner. She feels blessed to be in this profession serving these individuals.
