Massage therapist

Massage therapy is a patient-therapist interaction that uses touch to improve overall well-being.

A sensitive, caring touch merges with the personality and needs of the person with cancer throughout every stage of the disease — whether it be at diagnosis, the onset of treatment, in case of recurrence, during palliative care or even at end of life. 

Massage, as patient support, is characterized by a health-giving touch and sensitive presence of the therapist thus providing a positive biopsychosocial impact on the struggle against the disease.
