With the Wash Park Relay for Life coming up this weekend, we are reminded to continue our fight against cancer by doing everything we can to promote wellness and support for those who are fighting the battle against cancer. Incorporating massage therapy into the oncology treatment plan is an important piece of the healing process. There are many massage modalities that can be helpful during any stage of cancer treatment. Often times the lymphatic system of oncology patients has been compromised, constricting one of the body’s natural methods of fighting illness. Lymphatic obstruction may cause swelling due to a blockage of lymph fluid. In these cases Manual Lymph Drainage Massage (MLD) is very beneficial to the client.
The lymphatic system is located just under the skin and can be stimulated with pressure as light as the weight of a penny. Manual Lymph Drainage Massage is a light pressure massage which opens up the lymph nodes and redirects the flow of lymph fluid through the system. Once the lymph nodes have been stimulated and the lymph flow redirected, the system is able to drain the excess fluid.
Due to the light nature of Oncology massage clients are able to receive manual lymph drainage massage during times that deep tissue would be contraindicated; during radiation, chemotherapy and after surgery. Manual Lymph drainage helps move chemotherapy drugs through the body more quickly, which initially can cause sickness, and will help the body recover more quickly. Healthy lymph flow will help distribute immune cells to areas of the body they are most needed.
Other massage modalities that are beneficial to oncology treatment are Swedish and Reflexology massage. It’s also important for caretakers and family of oncology patients to maintain health and wellness with regular massage.
