Studies have shown that massage and other alternative therapies are very effective in reducing the pain and discomfort of cancer treatments-as well as in helping patients (and caregivers) feel more positive and energized. We recommend you go for the spa services, but choose a place that uses organic, toxin-free products.
Hospital and Alternative Spas
It is essential to address the physical and emotional symptoms associated with cancer and its treatment; alternative therapies are often a great tool in managing these symptoms. Hospital spas and alternative therapy centers provide cancer patients with complimentary services to help manage pain and nausea as well as other side effects of treatment.
If you’re going through cancer treatment and expect hair loss, you’ll want to find the best wig you can. Going online is one option, but it robs you of the chance to try before you buy, and can leave you unhappy with your purchase. We recommend you find a wig salon near you and make a day of it. Take a friend and a camera, try on several wigs, and buy only when you feel it’s right for you.
