MASSAGE CARE DURING CANCER TREATMENT
Laura has additional training in massage therapy during radiation and chemotherapy treatment. Research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre states that, "...massage therapy helps reduce pain, mood disturbance,and fatigue in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. It can reduce psychological and neurological complications and provide comfort to patients undergoing bone marrow transplantation.
