How is ‘Oncology Massage’ Different from ‘Normal Massage?’

by Tracy Walton

 

She called me about getting massage for her brother. He was in treatment for advanced cancer, and he felt too sick to arrange massage for himself. “What is different about massage for people with cancer?” she asked me. And “How is it different from ‘normal’ massage?”

I hear this question often. It always deserves a thoughtful answer.
