Some men with prostate cancer find it beneficial to work with health and wellness providers such as local registered massage therapists, registered dietitians and acupuncturists. If you have prostate cancer, you will work with a local family physician, urologist and oncologist, who is a doctor that focuses on treating patients with cancer. A local registered massage therapist is a health provider who treats people who have injuries or disorders of the soft tissues of the body, such as back pain or sciatica. However, you don’t need to be injured or have an illness to benefit from seeing a local registered massage therapist. Different registered massage therapists use different techniques to treat patients, from lymphatic drainage to craniosacral release. Men with prostate cancer may find that a local registered massage therapist can help reduce pain and decrease nausea from chemotherapy and reduce depression symptoms. Seeing a local registered massage therapist can also help you manage the anxiety that can come with having cancer. If you’d like to learn more about how a local registered massage therapist can help you, start by talking to your local oncologist, urologist or family physician.
