Massage For Breast Cancer Patients
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which aims to educate the public about breast cancer prevention and treatment. This campaign was co-founded by the American Cancer Society and a breast-cancer drug company in 1985. Since that founding, massage therapy for breast cancer survivors and patients has been adopted as a relaxing, pain-relieving complement to Western care.
MASSAGE Magazine presents this article on the benefits of massage therapy for breast cancer patients and survivors, written by oncology massage expert Cheryl Chapman, R.N., H.N.-B.C., L.M.T., on behalf of the Society for Oncology Massage.
