From the day a person learns they have cancer, their world is never the same again. The innocence of thinking: “it won’t happen to me” is replaced with a myriad of emotions including fear, grief, sadness and a feeling that you’ve lost control of your world.
Then add the physical symptoms of the disease, and then the affects of treatment. It all adds up and can leave a person thinking that their life is not theirs anymore.
Oncology Massage is much more than a tool to relieve the physical symptoms of cancer and cancer treatments, it’s a way of helping people reconnect with their bodies and feel like themselves again. It gives people time and emotional space to get to know their changing body, giving them a chance to re-establish some mindful control of who they are.
Geelong Natural Therapy’s Oncology Massage Therapists Shayne Sullivan and Michelle Rademaker see their role in a person’s treatment and recovery as fluid – people can choose to use their Geelong oncology massage to help lessen the physical symptoms of experiencing cancer and treatments, or they can use their massage to assist them cope emotionally – whether they’re looking for strength, calm or to simply feel like themselves again.
