With hugely positive effects on your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, our oncology massages will prove massively beneficial to anyone who has been diagnosed or is undergoing cancer treatments. The gruelling impacts of said treatments can be greatly eased with our non-invasive, deeply relaxing massages which help to emulate a sense of deep relaxation – both physically and mentally.
When undergoing cancer treatments, whether it be chemotherapy; stem cell therapy; radiation therapy; surgery or any others, your body (more specifically, your central nervous system) is put on high-alert which disrupts your ability to relax and unwind. It’s the process of relaxation that provides a substantial, natural boost to your body’s ability to heal and recover. With the assistance of a well-conducted oncology massage (which we provide to a professional-standard), your body is able to refamiliarise itself with the healing process and can provide a significant part of the aforementioned natural boost.
As well as mental and physical relaxation – the benefits of an oncology massage include higher quality, more restful sleep, boosted immune functions and the relief of depression, anxiety, pain, fatigue and nausea. Each one of these problems can be a result of chemotherapy, especially nausea, depression, anxiety and disruptive sleep; meaning that an oncology massage, in a way, mildly counteracts (or at least takes the edge off) the tolling side-effects of chemotherapy.
Depending on the type of cancer or part of the body most affected by said cancer, special precautions may have to be taken with your oncology massage – or whatever service you’re receiving. Hence why it’s always best to consult your GP before you receive an oncology massage. However, since we perform at an expert, professional-level here at NT Sports Therapy, the massage you receive will be tailored to your specific needs and any special requirements will be tended to as you see fit. Any information that we need about your situation, we’ll be aware of once we’ve given you a thorough assessment.
An oncology massage is designed to work hand-in-hand with whatever type of cancer treatment you’re undergoing, whether that’s a type of radiation therapy or simple medication. It absolutely isn’t a replacement or a substitute for your treatment and should be treated as a complementary form of therapy. It is also important to note that an oncology massage doesn’t assist with fighting cancer itself, it simply mitigates the tolling effects of cancer treatments and helps the body fight back naturally.
