Massage relieves muscle tension and discomfort, reduces pain and swelling, and stimulates healing. It can also decrease stress, and fatigue, assist the body in achieving greater flexibility and increases circulation. Massage involves the use of gentle pressure on your skin.
Our practitioner is a licensed massage therapist with special training in treating patients with cancer. Currently, the massage therapist is available in the Outpatient Infusion Center.
Visits are free, but please check with your medical team before you begin massage therapy.
