Massage for Cancer Survivors and in Remission

As a cancer survivor, you have a “new normal”. It takes at least a year after the end of treatment to settle into a new relationship with your body. So much has changed that you used to take for granted, such as hair texture, body mass, skin elasticity and surgical scars and implants. The level of pressure is up to you, and we can adjust positions to side-lying if it’s uncomfortable to lay face down.

There is so much more to you than the site of your surgery. You are a whole person, and as trained Oncology Massage Therapists, we understand what you’ve been through, and that you want to move on.

Yes, cancer survivors can have deep tissue massage as long as it is adapted slightly. Even if it’s been years since your treatment, and you are in complete remission, there are still some considerations you need to know about. Keeping you safe means knowing what NOT to do. Did you know that a “deep tissue” massage is NOT appropriate for an area where lymph nodes were removed, no matter how long ago? Deep Tissue Massage in affected areas can interrupt lymphatic flow and could trigger onset of Lymphedema swelling . Our therapists are trained to adapt massage pressure, avoiding the techniques that cause the most risk, yet still getting into the tissue to relieve your muscle tension. The areas not affected by lymph node removal can have deep tissue massage without concern.
