Cancer and Neoplasia


Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, by Salvo and Anderson. Within the course of Dr. Johnson.

While reading Chapter 12, I learned about Cancer and Neoplasia. A person with cancer can benefit greatly from massage. Massage can help to relax and improve the quality of life for a cancer patient because these clients have a huge amount of stress while dealing with a life threatening disease. During treatment the body can really take a beating, so massage can help relax the muscles, and relieve stress. In the beginning cancer was totally contraindicated, but now with more study and understanding of the disease it is allowed and greatly suggested by doctors. It can also help family members of someone with cancer, to relive the stress and relax them.
