Informed massage therapists can support the body to promote overall wellness as well as identify the underlying secondary effects of cancer treatment that contribute to physical dysfunction. Oncology Massage: An Integrative Approach to Cancer Care provides massage therapists with essential information for:Treatment planning based on the physiology of cancer and cancer treatmentsCritical, thoughtful treatment decision makingConsideration of the psychosocial effects of cancerEnhancing therapist self-awareness and building a therapeutic relationship. The information is presented in a clear and simple format with plentiful use of illustrations and information boxes which allows it to be used both as a learning tool for those new to the field of oncology massage and as a resource for quick referral when working with new patients.
