For Those Experiencing Cancer
Recent studies have shown that, for patients who have added therapeutic massage and/or Reiki to their treatment regimens, results impressively confirmed the value of massage. Anxiety levels decreased by 52%, pain by 40%, fatigue by 41%, depression by 32% and nausea by 21%.
Oncology massage is a patient-specific, customized massage session designed to meet the needs of someone in treatment for cancer. We are proud to have been chosen by the Mama Mare Breast Cancer Foundation and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick because we have been trained in the specifics of oncology as it relates to wellness.
The Complimentary Oncology Massage Program covering inpatient massage is generously funded by the Mama Mare Breast Cancer Foundation. Through the program, we provide free massage and palliative care to oncology patients.
To arrange for inpatient therapy:
By request of the patient or the patient's family, and with physician approval, the oncology massage session will take place in the patient's room. Massage is provided on Wednesdays beginning at 12:00 PM on the BMTU Unit, 4N, 5N, and 6N Oncology floors.
