- to treat the side effects of cancer, such as lymphoedema
What to Expect with a Remedial Massage session
Before the massage begins, your therapist will talk to you about your health and lifestyle.
They will ask you to lie on a table and will cover you with towels to protect your privacy and to keep you warm.
They will use oils to help them massage your skin smoothly, working into your muscles and relieving aches and pains.
