Massage has even been used as a supplement to modern medicine for people suffering from cancer. It can promote relaxation and reduce the symptoms of cancer, as well as the side effects of treatment including nausea, fatigue, and depression along with pain and swelling. A massage can improve the function of the immune system, making it the ideal complement to certain treatments for people with cancer. Not only can massage reduce physical pain within the body, but it has also been proven to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. This has been proven in a review of more than 12 studies. The studies showed that massage actually “lowered levels of cortisol by up to 50%,” while increasing levels of neurotransmitters that assist in reducing depression.
