Decongestive Lymphatic Therapy
Treatment for client with Lymphatic issues (Lymphoedema, Lipoedema,.. includes Manual Lymphatic Drainage
For many years, massage was believed to be contraindicated for people with cancer, as people believed that massage (which encourages movement of lymph fluid) might cause cancer to spread. Cancer develops and spreads because of genetic mutations and/or changes in other processes in the body. Cancer can also spread through the lymphatic system or stay in the lymphatic system. However, the circulation of lymph from massage or other movements does not cause cancer to spread (Cancer Council NSW).
Oncology massage is a complementary therapy that reduces the side effects caused by conventional treatment of cancer (Cassileth and Vickers, 2004), including pain, anxiety and fatigue. This study also showed reduction in nausea and depression. People that have had massages during cancer treatment have also reported improvements in sleep, scar tissue, quality of life, mental clarity/alertness and range of movement (Cancer Council NSW).
However, depending on your cancer treatment, not all massage techniques will be appropriate for you, and incorrectly performed massage may worsen treatment-associated side effects, even after your cancer treatment is over. It’s important to ensure your massage therapist is specially-trained in oncology massage, to make sure they have the awareness and expertise to modify their conventional massage for the client with a history or diagnosis of cancer, while also being mindful of any contraindications for massage.
