Massage Therapy And Breast Cancer

Massage Therapy And Breast Cancer

It’s time to spread the word! Join The Soma Institute in Chicago to spread the word about Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases among women today. Fortunately, many women are surviving breast cancer more than ever due to early detection and treatment.

Massage therapy has shown to offer many benefits for breast cancer patients. Performed by a trained, qualified therapist, the benefits of massage therapy include:

  • Reduced stress & anxiety
  • Reduce inflammation & stimulating oxygenation of tissues
  • Increased urinary dopamine & serotonin values
  • Healing of connective tissues or damaged muscles

In general, massage can also enhance one's feeling of well-being by stimulating nerve endings in the skin and releasing endorphins. Additionally, some studies say breast cancer patients have improved immune functions following massage therapy treatment.
