What is Oncology Massage

Oncology massage is a specialised form of massage treatment for clients who have a cancer diagnosis (current or past).


Oncology massage aims to activate the parasymphatic nervous system through techniques such as fascial mobilisation, fascial holds in specific body sequences which allows for the activation of a relaxation response by providing a nurturing, caring and gentle environment for the patient.
