Oncology Massage

Oncology Massage is a specialized form of massage developed specifically for cancer patients. The focus is on enhancing healing while “doing no harm“. Historically most doctors recommended that cancer patients abstain from massage as it could potentially break up cancerous tumours and cause them to spread in the body. Oncology Massage was created to provide massage for cancer patients giving them the health benefits without making their conditions worse.
