Introduction to Cancer and Massage

It is said that happiness is a not the destination, but the journey.  Recovery from cancer is both destination and journey.  Medicine is primarily concerned with the quality of the destination.  Massage is primarily concerned with the quality of the journey. 

For many cancer patients the recovery journey never ends - most cancer survivors remain at perpetually increased risk.  Modern medicine increasingly appreciates that the quality of the cancer journey bears directly on the quality of the cancer destination.  

Extensive physical and emotional support during recovery add to both quality and quantity of life. Among the complementary therapies, massage provides a unique combination of effects on both sides of the mind-body connection.   Massage soothes the body, easing mind and spirit.  Mind and spirit in turn remind the body of its God given power to self-heal.
