Our massage therapists

Certified by the Fédération québécoise des massothérapeutes, our massage therapists have special training in massage in the field of oncology. Compassionate, respectful and ready to listen, these professionals can adapt to the physical condition of the patient in order to bring relaxation which will enable the person to devote more energy to getting well.

The benefits

Due to its effects, both physiological and psychological, massage therapy can help reduce several of the symptoms brought on by cancer and its treatments, such as: nausea, pain, fatigue, anxiety, stress and depression. It can also increase the feeling of relaxation, sleep quality and the reaction of the immune system, at the same time bringing significant improvement to the mood of patients.
