For those concerned about massage potentially spreading cancer cells, there is no evidence of this.
Macmillian have published the following advice, as have Cancer Research UK:
“Some people worry that massage could cause cancer cells to spread to other parts of their body. Research has not found any evidence of this.”
“Some people worry that having a massage when you have cancer may make the cancer cells travel to other parts of the body. No research has proved this to be true.”

Here at The Lymington Chiropractic Clinic, we understand that having a massage may seem like a daunting process when dealing with cancer. Rest assured, you will have time to ask questions and raise any concerns you may have, including areas of the body you want to avoid.
This will be discussed during each consultation before the massage. There are also many adaptions we can cater for including seated massage and fully clothed.
If you would like to discuss anything about massage for cancer patients – please do not hesitate to contact the clinic for more information.
