      I see the article is from Cleveland Clinic which is a very well respected organization. I would just like to warn people that, from what I have been told, massages and cancer do not always go together. So, before you go lay on a massage table, please verify with your oncologist that it is okay to do.

      I was very surprised when I first heard that massage wasn't necessarily a good thing to do when fighting cancer. Somehow, it apparently may help spread the malignant cells or something....

      Here's an article by MD Anderson about massage therapy and cancer patients. https://www.mdanderson.org/publications/cancerwise/2010/07/the-benefits-of-oncology-massage-1.html or https://bit.ly/1Uj2eHF

      I didn't realize that massage was not good for all cancers as it was recommended by my first oncologist as a means of stress reduction an pain relief. Instead I chose hypnotism. I probably will never chose massage for myself because it is too touchy feelly and I am not a touchy-feelly person.
