The Truth About Cancer
The latest on cancer fighting news
Mesothelioma is a deadly disease that afflicts 3,000 people each year and that number is expected to grow in conjunction with the widespread use of asbestos throughout the last century. If you or a loved one is dealing with mesothelioma, your prognosis doesn't have to be impossible.
Massage Therapy as a Treatment: Those victimized by the pain of mesothelioma, a form of lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure, are ideal candidates for massage treatment. Many authorities in rehabilitation and medicine describe massage as being akin to (or a part of) the practice of alternative medicine: while it is not a cure by itself, it most definitely assists more conventional cancer treatments. When combined in such a way, massage and cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or tumor removal have been proven very effective at expediting recovery while decreasing pain.
