In the skilled hands of the massage therapist, manipulation of the skin and soft tissue structures of the body encourages muscles to relax, stimulates circulation creating a feeling of warmth and often provides relief from pain.
In the context of massage for those with cancer and other chronic illnesses, generally only a light and non-invasive form of massage is used to sooth the superficial muscles. However, the therapist will work with you to ensure that the pressure, fluidity and speed of manipulation are ideal for you.
In addition to general (Swedish) massage, we offer Aromatherapy Massage, Bowen Massage and Indian Head Massage. Please see the Treatments page for more information.
