Cancer and Massage Benefits

Breast Cancer and Massage Benefits

One in eight women in the United States will get breast cancer.  October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month—a chance to raise awareness about one of the deadliest diseases among women today.  The good news is that women are surviving breast cancer more than ever—if it’s found and treated early.

Recent studies have found that massage offers many health benefits for women with breast cancer.  Massage, in general, is helpful for varying ailments, including:

  • anxiety
  • immune function
  • fatigue
  • pain

The Soma Institute’s mission is to promote massage therapy education and clinical practice to those with a dream of providing health care to others.  Soma is dedicated to preparing our students to become successful massage practitioners and therapists.  Massage Therapy is more than just a job—it is a lifelong community service to the wellbeing of others.
