Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Research shows therapeutic massage is an effective complement to traditional medical care for women undergoing lumpectomy, mastectomy or breast reconstruction.

In a study performed by the University of Miami School of Medicine, breast cancer patients who were massaged three times a week reported lower levels of depression, anxiety and anger.

Benefits of massage after breast cancer treatment also include boosting the immune system and helping women reconnect with their bodies.
