Massage and Breast Cancer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Did you know that massage can be helpful before, during and post-treatment? Light massage at any stage of breast cancer can be beneficial. Smooth gliding strokes can help alleviate symptoms of pain, nausea, fatigue, edema, scar tissue and even the emotional toll that often comes with chemotherapy, radiation and surgery treatments. From diagnosis to recovery, a caring touch from a licensed massage therapist trained in working with oncology patients is not only safe, but can help a patient through their most personal journey.
