If you’re a cancer patient, you might be dealing with a wide range of symptoms, physical, emotional, and spiritual. Some of the benefits that skilled hands-on therapy can bring to cancer patients and survivors include:
- pain relief and reduced need for pain medication
- improvement in fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite
- decreased anxiety and depression
As a therapist with specialized oncology training, I’ve worked with clients having
- chemo pumps in place
- brain shunts post-surgery
- Stage IV liver cancer
- Stage IV pancreatic cancer
These days more and more physicians are recommending bodywork for their patients in treatment for or recovery from cancer. Bodywork can relieve stress, bring some ease to the process of treatment, and help to rebuild health once treatment is completed. Of course you need a therapist who is trained to observe necessary precautions.
If you’d like to explore what bodywork could accomplish for yourself or someone you care for, please get in touch with me via the contact page, or call me at 610-202-4778 and we can talk.
