Being diagnosed with cancer is the beginning of what can be a long, overwhelming and frightening journey for patients. Traveling to new medical facilities, engaging with doctors and trying to absorb a host of new information is mentally stressful. Experiencing medical testing, treatment, and the side effects of treatment is physically taxing. For patients, and for their caregivers, the cancer experience is likely one of the most stressful events of their lives. Massage can help patients and their families deal with the stress and anxiety associated with cancer.
