Cancer Massage Therapy
A Complementary Therapy
While massage doesn’t treat the cancer itself, it may help reduce the side effects caused by conventional treatments and improve quality of life and wellbeing.
As well as improving physical symptoms, some people with cancer say that having a massage:
makes them feel whole again
helps them to relax
helps them share feelings in an informal setting
makes them feel more positive about their body
Research shows that massage of muscle and soft tissue does not spread cancer cells.
A Time of Calm
A good relaxation massage relieves stress and tension in your muscles and will leave you oozing with a sense of wellbeing. It achieves this because of the general benefits of massage: it improves your circulation; it moves fluid through your lymphatic system and can aid the release of toxins.
You will have a long, luxurious massage which will use all kinds of techniques including long strokes, gentle kneading and rolling of skin and muscle.
With my Sports Massage therapy, I hope to make you feel relaxed and renewed after each session. I tailor your session to work on your specific goals and needs. I love showing my patients how just a few treatments can make an enormous difference to their health and how they feel.
The purpose of a sports massage is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, deep tissue massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Above all, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement.
Reconfiguring Soft Tissue
SCARWORK is the brainchild of Sharon Wheeler of Seattle, U.S.A. She has developed a unique approach to working with scars.
ScarWork is an approach to reconfiguring the soft tissues, normally reducing the adhesions left by the scarring and improving the scar’s appearance. Adhesions connect structures that should not be connected; this can restrict mobility and organ function, and create pain. ScarWork is a gentle therapy, easy on the therapist and the client, employing the lightest of touch.
