Can massage treat cancer?
No evidence exists to suggest that massage cures cancer. Lymphatic drainage (a form of massage) can be employed however to relieve physical discomfort and improve the quality of life of cancer patients.
Doctor’s clearance must be obtained before commencing treatment. Orthodox medicine has theorised that massage may cause some types of cancers to spread, however this theory has been dispelled and the evidence now suggests that massage assists and improves a patients quality of life during oncology treatment.
Lymphatic Drainage is often used during cancer treatment, as it is a gentle whole body treatment that relaxes the nervous system and aids in the healing of the body’s immune system. Lymphatic drainage involves a range of specialised and gentle rhythmic pumping techniques that moves excessive fluid in the correct direction of the lymph flow and into the network of lymph vessels and lymph nodes for filtration. This technique assists the body to naturally eliminate excess toxins, dead cells, viruses, bacteria and chemicals quicker for a faster recovery. The other benefits of lymphatic drainage are: relieving fluid congestion, promoting wound healing and relieving stress and anxiety in patients.
