Oncology Massage Therapy is the practice of skilled massage in all stages of cancer care. Therapists use techniques that ease symptoms and provide support. Training in oncology massage covers appropriate bodywork modalities for cancer clients, includes precautions for radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery, and covers physiology and pathology. Massage is adapted to specific cancer treatments and side effects. After cancer treatment is complete, skilled massage can continue to support movement and exercise, healing, positive mood and well-being.
