Did you know that the next time you lie down on the bed (or table) for a wonderfully refreshing session of gay massage, you’re enjoying a therapy that benefits such a wide reach, they can help cancer patients? It may seem extraordinary that the simple power of touch can help people with grave, potentially terminal illnesses, but it’s true. We tend to think of cancer treatments as consisting of the heavily invasive, sick-making measures such as chemotherapy. Now, however, complementary therapies, including massage, acupuncture and nutrition/dietary supplements are making their mark, as reported by Massage Magazine earlier this year.
Recent analysis of American cancer centres indicates that among the popular integrative treatments being offered is massage, which can help to diminish the physical pain and emotional anxiety from which cancer patients often suffer. And not only are such therapies widely used, they’re on the increase and have been steadily growing in popularity over the last twelve years. While you may be in the fortunate position of only needing gay massage London for general pleasure, relaxation and wellbeing, for others, it could be a matter of life and death. Oncology massage is offered to around 70 per cent of cancer sufferers in the United States, with the UK sure to follow in the coming years.
The authors of the “Growth Of Integrative Medicine at Leading Cancer Centers Between 2009 and 2016”, have also found a rise in the use of hypnosis, dance therapy, healing touch, Qi gong and yoga as cancer-treating therapies. But just why is massage becoming a more prevalent cancer treatment? Well, part of it is simple and obvious. Touch will almost always feel healing and comforting during times of increased stress and fear, and part of treating any grave condition should be making the patient feel optimistic and calm at a time when their system is under attack. Comforting touch is a basic human need that can be criminally overlooked at the moment when it’s most needed.
Of course, there is more precise and detailed research, demonstrating the hormonal benefits of massage, and then there are also knock-on benefits. A happier patient will be more amenable with nursing staff and doctors, making it easier for them to manage their respective work-loads, which in turn will make wards and hospitals run more efficiently. So it’s a winner, whichever way you look at it.
