Massage Therapy and Cancer/Oncology massage

Janet Penny, RMT has received advanced training in massage and cancer care.

Massage therapy can be an integral part of your care as you go through treatment for cancer. Skilled touch and careful listening can ensure a safe and effective massage as you experience surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. Massage therapy is effective in addressing:

  • pre-surgery anxiety and fear
  • post-surgical swelling and mobility-limiting scar restrictions
  • radiation induced thickening of the skin, fascia and muscles that limit movement and can contribute to edema
  • Chemotherapy effects such as nausea, fatigue and peripheral neuropathy
