Neuromuscular Massage Provides Restorative Care for Cancer Patients

Neuromuscular Massage Therapy manipulates the muscles, tendons and connective tissue to help balance the central nervous system. By increasing blood flow, massage can help clear any cellular waste that is causing the receptors in the tissue to become more sensitive and therefore more painful. Massage releases endorphins, the body’s own pain killers, while enhancing the ability of joints to move freely.

Massage can Help Patients Being Treated for Cancer

One benefit of massage is that it brings a feeling of well-being and relaxation which can help with the stress, anxiety or even depression associated with dealing with cancer treatment. Massage increases the body’s production of endorphins which elevate mood and flushes the waste product, lactic acid, out of muscles.

Massage also relieves pain and stiffness, increases mobility and reduces pain.

The National Cancer Institute found that more than half of their cancer centers offer massage as an adjunct to traditional treatment especially for those patients who suffer from fatigue.
