What is Oncology Massage Therapy?

Debra Roller-Patient
“They're telling me now I am cancer free. Yeah!”
Debra Roller-Patient
“This gives me a chance to get out and be around people and get the actual human contact and knowing that I'm in safe hands and that I'm just going to have an hour where I don't even have to think about the cancer or think about the the grandkids or anything it's my hour and it's for me.”

Rachel Gee- Massage Therapist
Oncology massage therapy focuses on the needs of our patients. Their ever changing needs of our patients being from initial diagnosis to treatment to end of life.”

Debra Roller-Patient
“It just helped me feel better and it gave me courage and strength to get up and get dressed whereas you know all I wanted to do is lay around the house and do nothing.”

Rachel Gee- Massage Therapist
Some of the benefits of massage is massage provides comfort and is relaxing. It can reduce the severity and symptoms of side effects and it can improve sleep and it can reduce a sense of isolation. Massage therapy offers an emotional support with positive touch and massage therapy creates peace of mind and a source of well-being.”

Debra Roller-Patient
I can definitely tell the difference between a spa massage and the light touch massage that I get here. Their main focus is my comfort level and that has just been the most awesome part.”

Rachel Gee- Massage Therapist
“The adjustments that we make for our patients are positioning. We allow them to be in whatever position they're able to. As far as pressure, we want to stay in a range that is comfortable for them. As far as positioning goes, if the patient had just had surgery, we may prop them up or they may want to lie on their side. Whatever is comfortable for them that day.”
