Frequently Asked Questions

Do massages spread cancer cells?

No, massage does not spread cancer cells. Cancer can move to different parts of the body but the mechanism is a genetic mutation, not touch.

However, many are concerned that touch can spread cancer, the cancer council of Australia explain,

‘Some people worry that massage can spread cancer cells throughout the body via ……a network of vessels, organs and nodes through which lymphatic fluid (lymph) flows Lymphatic circulation occurs naturally as we move.

Cancer may spread (metastasise) into the lymphatic system via the lymph nodes, or it may start in the lymphatic system itself. However, the circulation of lymph – from massage or other movement – does not cause cancer to spread. Researchers have shown that cancer develops and spreads because of changes to a cell’s DNA (genetic mutations) and other processes in the body.’

Why do some spa's turn away cancer patients

Oncology massage and other touch treatments for cancer patients are not covered by entry-level spa-therapy training. Anyone completing a beauty or holistic qualification will be taught not to touch anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer.

Therapists require specialist qualifications to be able to deliver touch treatments to those living with and beyond cancer.

A spa which turns away a cancer patient, or clients who have received a cancer diagnosis in the past, has not provided specialist training to their therapists.

As a result, the therapists will not have an awareness of the challenges faced following a diagnosis, nor will they know how to adapt their treatments accordingly.

What about reflexology treatments, manicures and pedicures

All treatments and therapies for those affected by cancer requires a specialist qualification. There are steps which must be taken during a session with someone in treatment which, whilst good practice for all, are not as significant to others.

For example, many cancer patients have compromised immunity, making them more vulnerable to infection than others. Manicures and pedicures are relatively invasive procedures and robust infection control is vital. Reflexology, manicures and pedicures are wonderful therapies for those affected by cancer, but only when delivered by an expert, specially qualified therapist.
