Oncology Massage

Pain relief through massage

 

Oncology massage is an approach to massage therapy based in both compassion and specialized massage treatments to help people manage their experience with cancer.

 

The treatments are modified according to the full spectrum of cancer-related issues: the physical, psycho-social and emotional consequences of cancer. In addition, the person's individual goals are considered and aspects of the disease and cancer treatment side effects.

 

Personal goals for receiving oncology massage can include the desire for a respite, a relaxing pleasurable experience in the midst of everything that is going on. And, relieving nausea or other symptoms such as pain or peripheral neuropathy and helping them get though the remainder of their cancer treatments.

The benefits of oncology massage:

  • Valuable 'me time'
  • Reassurance
  • Relaxation
  • De-stressing

Testimonials

J STANFORD Management Consultant

I have been having regular massages for over 30 years. I have worked with dozens of masseurs and Janet Pitcher is without doubt the best. Each time I see Janet she varies what she does to meet my body's needs at that time - there is no set routine completed without much thought. She has 'listening hands'. She can tell quickly what is wrong and what your body needs. She has more anatomical and medical knowledge than any masseur I have ever met. She can also suggest stretches and exercises to alleviate complaints. I would recommend Janet without hesitation to anyone - whether they need to reduce the stress in their body, have a sports injury or wish to learn more about their own body.

You can also book appointments with me at any time from The Cherry Tree Therapy Centre 2 Station Parade, Cherry Tree Rise, Buckhurst Hill, Essex, IG9 6EU, or from my home in Stondon Massey, CM15 OEE
