Deep Tissue Massage
Some cancer patients use Deep Tissue Massage to reduce symptoms, improve healing, enhance their mood and lower their anxiety. This therapy can offer many short-term benefits in terms of psychological well being and reduction of some symptoms through indications for various types of therapeutic massages.
In addition, therapists and patients feel a closer connection as well as stimulate the reciprocal relationship between the patient’s body and mind.
Deep Tissue Massage is a very humane and important part of integrative cancer treatments, because it mainly focuses on well-being and comfort, which is important to patients who are going through the harsh reality of their situation.
This method helps in increasing circulation and blood flow. It also increases metabolism, which pushes more blood into the massaged area.
How Does It Work?
When chemotherapy is administered, the white blood cells get wiped out and the Deep Tissue Massage helps balance things out.
Plain chemotherapy is a conventional cancer treatment, however, to manage its harsh side effects, Deep Tissue Massage is introduced.
The Deep Tissue Massage also helps in restoring a balanced upright posture, decreasing symptoms of pain, breaking down scar tissue or muscle adhesion and improving one’s range of motion. It is a massage technique that works on the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
The massage is administered using fingertips, knuckles, hands, elbows, and forearms during the Deep Tissue Massage. The pressure is generally stronger than a regular massage, with the strokes being slower.
