Massage Beneficial for Kids Suffering from Cancer

We all know how beneficial massage can be for all people–including children. But what about children with cancer or blood diseases? Yep, they can benefit too, says a recent study published in the International Journal of Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork.

Children with cancer or blood disease who received regular massage showed significant physical and psychological improvement versus a group of sick children who did not receive massage. The study looked at 30 children with cancer and blood disease, ages 6 months to 17 years old.
