According to research conducted at the Stanford University Cancer Center, short periods of massage can provide physical and emotional benefits for cancer patients. Massage therapy can provide relief of muscle tension, low back pain, chronic fatigue, anxiety and depression.
Research conducted at the Fox Chase Cancer Center proved that massage therapy bolsters immune function in people fighting cancer.
An initial consultation can help you find the right massage therapy for you.
Healing touch (energy balancing)
Reflexology hand or feet massage is a type of massage therapy that opens meridian pathways on hands and feet, allowing the release of toxins in the body. This results in the body re-balancing and addressing physical and emotional issues that can be caused by a patient's treatment.
