6 Techniques for Cancer Patients | Reflexology

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1IAinBB Watch more How to Do Reflexology videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/501563-6-Techniques-for-Cancer-Patients-Reflexology So, reflexology and cancer. There is so much research that's been done over the years. And certainly research that's being done right now. So if you're curious about reflexology and cancer, I so encourage you to look into the studies. There's a major one being done right now with the National Cancer Institute in this country, the United States, with the NIH. The National Institutes of Health. It's Michigan State University and they are doing incredible work on breast cancer patients and reflexology. This is their second grant and it's really astonishing work. So just research it if you like. Branch Reflexology. Barbara Bower. There's some wonderful people doing that. So it's out there. With cancer, it really depends on the person you're with. If they have cancer, it's really important that you're communicating with them the whole time. If they're undergoing some kind of chemotherapy, they might be really, really sensitive in their feet. So you might want to focus more on relaxation techniques. So we'll start with those. Some of the ones you can use might be the lung press for example. With the lung press you're going to go ahead and make a fist and you're going to with your thumb go ahead and insert it there. And then this hand will support the foot. So this part of the hand will be on the ball of their foot. So we bring it right there and we're just going to support with these fingers. Then to do the lung press we go ahead and press forward and then we kind of wave their foot towards us back. And we go front and back. We're going to do this bilaterally. So it means we're going to be doing it on both feet. We could do it the other direction too. You'll do the other foot as well. Some of the other things you could do could be the metatarsal mover. Just with your thumbs moving the metatarsal heads ever so gently. Again it's really important sometimes the just gentlest of touch for someone who's going through cancer is really, really special. So I encourage you to look into how to be present with your friend or family member and even just holding the feet can be really valuable. You can also work on the foot, in general, as a whole. So you could do all the reflexology techniques. You could do the thumb walking, the finger walking, in particular for the entire body. So we can for instance to the whole arch or belly of the foot. You could do the thumb walking up. You're passing through all of these wonderful vital organ reflexes. Certainly get your maps and look at what you're passing through. You might want to give a little more or less attention to something depending on the kind of cancer your person has. In addition you also can do thumb walking on the heels. You could do it on the ball of the foot. The whole lymphatic system falls through here and across here. So certainly you could do everything, but the relaxation techniques tend to be very popular amongst cancer patients.

A Massage Therapist Shares Her Experience Working with Cancer Patients
When Jennifer Ashton was in massage school, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. During her treatment she received bodywork twice a day day for 16 months, and this experience not only transformed her healing process, it also changed how she thought about her future life's work. Ashton spent time doing palliative care massage and bedside massage before turning her focus entirely to cancer patients when she became the massage program coordinator at Mount Sinai’s Dubin Breast Center in New York City. To date Ashton and her team has provided over 6,200 massages to patients. Listen as Sonia Jones, founder of Sonima.com, talks with Ashton about this innovative program and the ways in which she stays centered and balanced while doing this good work.

The Role of Massage Therapy in Cancer Treatment
Sitting in the hospital waiting room can be incredibly stressful. People await treatment, either for themselves or loved ones, surrounded by others at various stages of their own treatment or recovery process. This experience can be anxiety-inducing, tedious, and painful. Certainly this is neither the intention nor the desire of the doctors and therapists at Mount Sinai's Dubin Breast Center, however in many instances it has become somewhat unavoidable. Since 2011 the Dubin Breast Center, with the help of Jennifer Ashton and a team of highly skilled therapists, has implemented an unorthodox approach to a traditional hospital visit. Through massage, support, guided meditation and breathing exercises they have aimed to put their patients in the right state prior to, and throughout their visits. [recommended_posts] In this video, join Sonima’s founder, Sonia Jones, and Jennifer Ashton as they discuss the important role massage therapy plays in maintaining the well-being of patients.

Debra Roller-Patient “They're telling me now I am cancer free. Yeah!” Debra Roller-Patient “This gives me a chance to get out and be around people and get the actual human contact and knowing that I'm in safe hands and that I'm just going to have an hour where I don't even have to think about the cancer or think about the the grandkids or anything it's my hour and it's for me.” Rachel Gee- Massage Therapist Oncology massage therapy focuses on the needs of our patients. Their ever changing needs of our patients being from initial diagnosis to treatment to end of life.” Debra Roller-Patient “It just helped me feel better and it gave me courage and strength to get up and get dressed whereas you know all I wanted to do is lay around the house and do nothing.” Rachel Gee- Massage Therapist Some of the benefits of massage is massage provides comfort and is relaxing. It can reduce the severity and symptoms of side effects and it can improve sleep and it can reduce a sense of isolation. Massage therapy offers an emotional support with positive touch and massage therapy creates peace of mind and a source of well-being.” Debra Roller-Patient I can definitely tell the difference between a spa massage and the light touch massage that I get here. Their main focus is my comfort level and that has just been the most awesome part.” Rachel Gee- Massage Therapist “The adjustments that we make for our patients are positioning. We allow them to be in whatever position they're able to. As far as pressure, we want to stay in a range that is comfortable for them. As far as positioning goes, if the patient had just had surgery, we may prop them up or they may want to lie on their side. Whatever is comfortable for them that day.”

Massage Therapy for Cancer Patients
For the healthy customer, it offers relaxation. For a patient with cancer, massages can be used to help them through their treatment. “They know that their body is different and that their body has changed, but usually after a massage, they tend to feel relaxed and happy,” said massage therapist Gloria Moreira. Moreira helps patients at the Regional Cancer Center relax and work through some of the pain and symptoms caused by cancer treatment. “I’m happy that massages are helping patients, especially those who do suffer neuropathy,” she says. Depending on the patient’s diagnosis and treatment, the massage may feel different than it would for a patient without cancer. “There are specific things you can’t do. There’s heat you can’t use in specific places depending on what kind of cancer they have. With chemotherapy, a lot of clients get really sensitive, so I know not to use a lot of pressure,” said Moreira. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause the patient to be very sensitive to touch in certain areas—almost like a sunburn. Massage therapists can work lightly around the sensitive areas to offer some relief. “If they’ve had a double mastectomy and they have the scarring, I know never to go down the arms. It’s always a downward motion, and then through the chest. That’s because there have been lymph nodes that have been removed and of course I don’t want to irritate that,” said Moreira. Depending on their symptoms, the massages can help patients with neuropathy, pain, fatigue, nausea, and depression. Massages can be beneficial to patients with cancer, as long as the massage therapist is trained in massaging patients with different diagnosis.

August 2017 Heart of MD Anderson
Massage therapist Sat Siri Sumler has been helping ease cancer patients’ minds and bodies at the Integrative Medicine Center since 2000. The philosophy behind her work practice is simple: Be completely present for each and every client. Sat Siri Sumler has been a licensed massage therapist for more than 30 years, and after joining MD Anderson in 2000, she finally found her niche in a hospital setting. “Working with cancer patients is extremely fulfilling,” she says. “It gives me a sense of both connection and purpose.” Sumler’s dedication to serving our patients through the Integrative Medicine Center has earned her the Heart of MD Anderson Award for August 2017. Being completely present for each patient Sumler first studied massage therapy as a part of her yoga practice, before state certification was required. She subsequently completed formal training and has specialized in oncology massage since 1991. Many of the clients she saw in private practice were also patients at MD Anderson, making the move here a natural transition. “My approach is not just about the manual technique,” she said. “It’s about being completely present: honoring the person I’m working with and holding the space for their experience.” Sometimes, honoring someone means making adjustments to their massage treatment — or even gently refusing to work on a patient that day. “For years, there was a myth that massage causes cancer to spread,” she says. “And while that’s not true, there are factors to consider when working with cancer patients, including low blood values, anticoagulation, bone involvement, deep vein thrombosis, and treatments. Massage can also trigger lymphedema in some patients, so I have to modify pressure and technique.” To share her knowledge, Sumler co-developed an oncology massage training program for other licensed therapists in 2003. She also helped create a Patient Education flier in 2016. Today, Sumler has a loyal following of patients, many of whom request her personally. One dubbed her a “massage artist.” Another said that thanks to Sumler, he no longer needs acupuncture for pain relief. Many tell Sumler that their initial sessions with her are the first time since diagnosis that they’ve felt like themselves. “That’s why I’m here,” Sumler says humbly. “My purpose is to do my part and help those I can. Massage therapy may seem pretty simple, but it can make a big difference.”

Cancer and Massage with Susan Salvo - Live Interview (64 Minutes)
http://www.lamassageschool.com http://www.massagenerd.tv http://www.massagenerd.com More than likely, you know someone who has or has had cancer. It is the leading cause of death in individuals 35-64 years of age and the second leading cause of death in individuals 65 and older (the first being heart disease in this age category). The American Cancer Society recommends massage therapy to bring comfort and to improve the quality of life for cancer patients, although not to specifically treat cancer. In the recent past, cancer was viewed as a contraindication for massage. This incorrect perception prevented people living with cancer from receiving treatments. The prevailing thought was that massage therapy increased the circulation of blood and lymph. Since most malignancies spread via these routes, it must increase the chance of spreading the cancer throughout the client's body. No medical evidence supports this claim. Currently, new and accurate information is available for massage therapists who want to work with cancer patients. Since cancer and cancer treatments affect the entire body, leaving the person in a fragile condition, it is vital for the massage therapist to be informed. Here are a few important guidelines to help massage therapist when working with cancer patients. Obtain medical clearance for massage from the client's healthcare provider. Use a side lying position and/or special propping to increase client comfort if he or she is unable to lay prone due to central lines on the upper chest wall, radiation burns, or surgical wounds. Avoid massage over or near IV's, catheters, surgical wounds over known cancer sites, radiation burns, or known tumors sites. Adjust the treatment to the client's stamina. Suggest that the client receive massage on high-energy days and times. Massage received on low energy days and times may actually feel depleting to the client. Massage may be contraindicated if the client's has spread to the bones. If medical clearance has been obtained, pressure, traction, and joint mobilizations may be contraindicated or only cautiously used. If the client is experiencing nausea due to cancer treatments, avoid pressure and speed that rocks the client. This includes joint mobilizations, stretches, and jostling. About the author: Susan G.

The Benefits of Integrative Care for Cancer Patients
Cancer doesn't just happen to the body. It also affects the mind and the spirit. While cancer treatments are solely focused on fighting the disease on a cellular level, integrative medicine can additionally help patients rebuild their energy and morale while strengthening their resolve to get better, too, which are all crucial for recovery. At the Mount Sinai’s Dubin Breast Center in New York City, the psychological department offers a myriad of ways to approach this next-level mental and physical care with programs ranging from hypnosis, family therapy, and couples therapy to yoga, meditation, massage and crafts. “We can improve quality of life. Symptoms and side effects of the cancer treatment don't have to be as bad. You might be able to speed up your recovery a bit. You don't have to be as distressed as you go through the different steps,” says Guy Montgomery, the director of Psychological Services at the Dubin Breast Center. “We want to help people get to a place where they want to be,” he adds. In this video interview with Sonima.com founder, Sonia Jones, Montgomery further explains the important role integrative care can play in a patient's treatment and recovery.
