Therapeutic massage can be helpful in relieving stress and anxiety as well as easing muscle tension. Our massage therapists provide modified, gentle massage techniques in order to work safely with the effects of breast cancer and cancer treatment. The goal is to provide relaxation and stress management to help our patients reconnect body and mind through a caring and supportive touch. Sessions may be provided before, during, or after already scheduled appointments. Sessions are approximately 10 to 30 minutes.
Massage benefits can include reduced pain and fatigue, decreased anxiety, less nausea, improved sleep, enhanced body image, and a greater sense of well-being.
