I read an article recently in Massage Magazine (masagemag.com) that talks about how touch can help people battling cancer. It says:

“Pain associated with advanced cancer can cause physical and emotional stress, leading to decreased functional ability and quality of life.”  Massage helps by inducing a relaxation response in the body; increasing the circulation of lymph and blood; having analgesic effects; decreasing inflammation and edema; releasing muscle spasms; increasing endogenous endorphon release; and “competing sensory stimuli that override pain signals.”

I have had the opportunity to help two cancer patients with their pain.  I was so grateful to be able to do something to help. It was, truly, my honor to serve them.  Bless you both.  You know who you are.
