THE BENEFITS OF THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE FOR CANCER PATIENTS

Massage therapy for cancer treatment works by using stroking, kneading and pressing the soft tissue of the body. The aim is to have you mentally and physically relaxed. Massage for cancer patients may concentrate on the muscles, the soft tissue or the acupuncture points. The massage technique is soft and gentle and with the combined energy or crystals and the therapeutic benefits of aromatherapy essential oils, which bring balance, harmony and well-being, have an effect on the patients nerve endings and help release endorphins which help provide relief for cancer symptoms such as pain, nausea, anxiety. You will be left feeling deeply relaxed.
Cancer Patients who have had massages have reported a wide range of positive outcomes such as improved
Quality of life
Mental clarity and alertness
Range of movement

DID YOU KNOW …..?
….that massage, acupressure and the balance of our bodies energy flow have been practiced and perfected around the globe for at least 5000 years? These ancient treatments have stood the test of time for a reason – they work!
In simple terms, it was discovered that the kneading, pressing, stroking and/or careful manipulation of muscles and meridian energy points could alleviate not only pain but many diseases throughout the body. (ref. Face-the-World.co.uk)
Benefits of Massage:
Helps beat PMS
Helps sufferers of soft tissue pain
Helps treat side effects of cancer
Helps cut down on migraines
Helps reduce pain from exercise
Helps make you look younger (ref. Readers Digest)
Balance negative energy and flow of chi
Improve sleep and feeling of well-being
Ease stress and feelings of anxiety
Improve skin oxygen levels and lymphatic flow (ref.Face-the-World.co.uk)
BENEFITS OF A FACIAL MASSAGE
In the same way you would massage a tender shoulder or achy back, your face muscles need the same TLC. Just as the rest of your body requires regular exercise to keep looking younger, so too does your facial muscles – which work just as hard as the rest of the muscles in your body. Face Massage relieves tension in the muscles of the face so helps prevent wrinkles from forming. Face Massage increases blood and oxygen flow to the soft lines around the mouth, eyes and brow, which have anti-aging benefits, leaving skin looking fresher and younger.
Face Massage will take you to a blissful state of relaxation. As well as boosting circulation Face Massage will stimulate the lymphatic vessels to aid in elimination of toxins from the facial area so nutrients can travel in and add vitality to a dull complexion and leave your skin glowing. Your skin tone and muscle tone will improve and you will feel relief from stress, neck tension and headache.
Face Massage decreases anxiety and helps improve negative moods (according to a study conducted by the USER SCIENCE INSTITUTE) A therapeutic Face Massage can help relieve allergy symptoms such as sinus congestion, resulting in puffiness and headaches, by helping improve drainage.
Face Massage is incorporated in FACE THE WORLD Facials. Also consider a FACE REJUVENATION MASSAGE.
THERAPIES – Why you deserve a regular Therapeutic treatment
Life can be tough!
We, as a generalisation, don’t allow ourselves enough time to relax and unwind and as a result can become run-down or unwell. My aim and intention, in all the therapies I do, is to relax, de-stress and help my clients feel good about themselves.
An Aromatherapy massage, using essential oils personally selected and blended to suit each individuals needs, is for anyone needing some personal time, are over-stressed, who may be recovering from an illness or may be frail. Aromatherapy may be for you.
Reflexology is a wonderful therapy which will restore balance to the body so improve the clients general well-being.
Beauty Therapies, from a FTW facial (Face The World), using pure and simple FTW products which don’t contain any known ‘nasties’, which will cleanse, nourish and enrich your skin, plus you will receive a face massage and a choice of a head or hand or foot massage to complete a relaxing, de-stressing treatment, to a Manicure or Pedicure both of which will condition and nourish your hands or feet and include a relaxing massage.
All these treatments and therapies are designed for the clients to have a moment to ‘step off the tread-mill’ and take time out for themselves to enjoy, relax and un-wind.
REFLEXOLOGY – HOW DOES IT WORK?
There are ten energy zones that run the length of the body from head to toe – five on each side of the body, ending in each foot and running down the arms into the tips of the fingers. The zones run length wise and pass through the body, so the zones located on the front of the body can also be reached from behind. All the organs and parts of the body lie along one or more of these zones. Each zone can be considered a channel for life energy. By stimulating or ‘working’ any zone in the foot, by applying pressure with the thumbs and fingers, affects the entire zone throughout the body. For example, working a zone on the foot along which the kidneys lie, will release vital energy that may be blocked somewhere else in that zone, such as the eyes. Working the kidney reflex area on the foot will therefore revitalize and balance the entire zone and improve functioning of the organ.
Good health depends on balance. Excessive stress disrupts this balance.
Reflexology alleviates the effects of stress by inducing deep relaxation, allowing the nervous system to calm down and function more normally so aiding a sense of well-being on all levels.
Energy pathways are opened up. Order and harmony are restored. The body is normalized as the 7 centres – known in Eastern medicine as chakras, are unblocked. The body returns to its natural rhythms. Energy flows. The body, mind and spirit are brought back into balance.

AROMATHERAPY – ESSENTIAL OILS
We are not at the start of the summer holiday season which is also the time of year when there are biting insects around. Preventing being bitten is fairly straightforward and a far better option than trying to ‘cure’ the ‘bite’. Use lemongrass or citronella – used in a diffuser inside, or outside burn a candle infused with either of these oils, to keep insects away. Alternatively, fill a small container with hot water, put a couple of drops of lemongrass, citronella, lavender, thyme, or peppermint on the surface of the water and place by the window or where the insects may enter your room.
To deter insects from landing on your skin, as a general rule, use lavender. – Mix 2 drops of lavender in 1 dessertspoon of vegetable oil such as almond oil, and smooth onto skin, for a body rub or simply add a drop of neat lavender to any lotion or cream you may have. Use before going out in the evening or before bed, on all the exposed parts of your skin.
Overnight try putting 2 drops of essential oil on a cotton bud or tissue and leave somewhere near your bed.
Avoid perfume as this often attracts unwanted biting insects.
Happy Summer to you all !!
One of the wonderful things about using essential oils, both cosmetically and medically, is that they enter and leave the body leaving no toxins behind The most effective way to use essential oils is by external application via massage using oil, compresses, baths and lotions, or inhalation by steam, room sprays etc.
REFLEXOLOGY LYMPH DRAINAGE
RLD aims to stimulate the function of the Lymphatic System and drain excess lymph from the damaged area – where surgery has been performed. RLD is an award winning reflexology technique which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. The aim is to cause an effect on the lymphatic system in the body. It is a unique sequence that has been researched and developed by Sally Kay BSc(Hon), whilst working in Cancer Care. The results appear to support the theory of reflexology.
REFLEXOLOGY LYMPH DRAINAGE.
Reflexology is based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, top and sides of the feet correspond to different areas of the body. In this way the feet can be seen as a ‘map’ of the body. By applying a specialised massage technique to specific reflex points – using thumbs, fingers and knuckles – the aim of a reflexology treatment is to help restore balance to the body naturally and improve the clients general well-being. Reflexology Lymph Drainage works specifically on the lymphatic reflex points aiming to stimulate the function of the Lymphatic System and drain excess lymph, thereby reducing swollen areas of the body where the lymph has collected, such as fingers, wrists, arms, legs and ankles.
MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE – MLD – is used to treat many conditions and Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) may be used similarly.
MLD and RLD may be useful with the following conditions:
Aches and pains Eczema
Chronic Fatigue Fibromyalgia
Muscle Tension Migraine
Headaches Sinus Problems
Pre Menstrual Syndrome
WAYS TO CLEANSE YOUR LYMPHATIC SYSTEM – Our Lymphatic system is our bodies waste collecting and waste disposal system. Because the Lymphatic system does not have a pump like the heart, it relies on physical movement of the body. There are several ways we can help activate our Lymphatic system.
- Dry rough sponge or brushing the skin, every day to stimulate the skin and generate movement of the lymph through the lymphatic system.
- Exercise is the most direct way to move and clean the Lymphatic system and rebounding is one of the best exercises to activate the Lymphatic system,
- Alternate the water from hot to cold in your daily shower. One minute warm and one minute cold for a total of five minutes ending with cold. This generates pumping of the lymph through the Lymphatic system.
MANUAL LYMPH DRAINAGE – MLD – is a very gentle technique which, by moving the skin and pumping rhythmically in the direction of the lymph flow, helps the lymph to flow and collect on its journey, waste products and reduce fluid retention and lymphoedema. It has been sited as beneficial for those with chronic fatigue syndrome (ME); pre and post surgery including Vaso Lipo; breast masectomy; fibromyalgia; recurring illness; infections and stress.
WAXING HAIR REMOVAL – Using Lycon Wax, formulated with the finest natural resins, bees wax and sensuous aromatherapy, delivering superior results, removing stubborn hair as short as 1 mm, like no other. Lycon wax is used at low temperature, is pliable and gentle and provides a nurturing and skin conditioning treatment for extra client comfort, even on the most sensitive skin.

REFLEXOLOGY TO REMOVE STRESS – We live with stress in our every day lives. In itself, stress is neither good nor bad, but becomes a problem when we fail to manage it well and the body’s defenses break down and we become susceptible to illness and disease. It is estimated that 75% plus of all illness is related to stress. Reflexology reduces stress by generating deep, tranquil relaxation, that helps the body balance itself and allow healing energy to flow gently and smoothly throughout.
REFLEXOLOGY is a method for activating the healing powers of the body. Touching our feet is not something we ordinarily do, other than when washing or dressing. Most of us live busy lives that have very little time for just relaxing and ‘being’. Reflexology can provide a quiet island in the course of each day where we can stop and renew ourselves before returning to our busy worlds with renewed energy and enthusiasm. Reflexology can be the first step in discovering other ways to live a happier, healthier life. So, take the first step to discover a new way to relax, destress and unwind and renew your energy and enthusiasm.
AROMATHERAPY uses the natural aromatic essences or oil extracted from many parts of wild or cultivated plants, including the root, bark, flowers or leaves. Oils come from spices and seeds too. Fruit such as lemon and vegetables such as carrot and celery also produce essential oils, and some oils, such as bergamot, myrrh and frankincense are oils distilled from tree resins. Each oil consists of many organic constituents which unite to produce a wide range of therapeutic qualities.
Aromatherapy may be thought of as a mere beauty massage treatment but, in actual fact the use of plants to cure disease is as old as the human race. Combining essential oils with a carrier oil such as grapeseed or almond oil and massaging into the skin, will activate the nerve endings and stimulate the circulation of the blood to the surface of the skin and thereby aid in absorption of the oils into the body.
We all deserve some pampering and a lovely way to do this is with a group of friends, to celebrate a birthday, Christmas, a Hen-Do, or just to celebrate friendship. Get a group together – between two and four is good to ensure your chosen treatments can all be fitted in. Choose which treatments you would all like and give me a call to arrange an appointment for me to come to you.
Please call me with any queries about treatments and timing.
There is evidence following research that adapted massage for cancer patients has many benefits. Some of the benefits include reduced anxiety and stress levels, reduced depression, pain and nausea; improved sleep quality and quality of life.
Every client receiving an oncology massage will have the treatment adapted to suit their needs.
