What is Soft Tissue Therapy
Soft tissue therapy is made of different techniques that all work to realign, strengthen, relax or switch on fibres in the muscle that is being targeted. This also has an effect on the fascia that entwines every fibre in our being and is the connection for mobility, nutrition and glide in the moving muscles.
Massage is an extremely useful tool in treating clients in any oncology phase, from diagnosis to surgery. Targeting the nervous systems, soft massage can be used as a calming effect on the body and mind, and sometimes a form of pain relief which is useful when traditional pain relief isn't an option due to conflicting drugs. It is always recommended you speak with your oncologist for confirmation of massage as every situation differs, and collaboration of all aspects of your care should be encouraged.
