Massage therapy and cancer: rest and restore

Cancer has a way of taking over your life.

From the first inkling that something isn’t right to diagnosis to the long journey that includes digesting masses of information and embarking on a treatment plan, cancer becomes a full-time, very stressful job.

 Massage therapy can be integrated into the your cancer care,
    providing a time to rest and restore.

A stressed body works less efficiently than it should.  Tight muscles, stiff joints, shallow breathing and poor sleep are all hallmarks of a body under duress.  Massage therapy provides a time to stop, allowing your body to restore some of its’ natural energy.

Improved energy is invaluable when making decisions, recovering from a round of chemotherapy and getting back into the social and recreational activities you love.

Rest is not a luxury, it is a necessity for your body and mind to function optimally.

Be well.
