Whether it is mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer, or some other malignancy, most cancer patients suffer not only from the pain of the disease itself, but more often from the side effects and discomfort brought on by chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Several studies have been conducted over the past several years that demonstrated the palliative effects of massage therapy on cancer patients in helping them to deal with the above mentioned symptoms.

What’s the problem?
In the realm of alternative therapies for mesothelioma treatment, massage has always been popular. While massage certainly does not offer a cure for mesothelioma or any cancer, it has been shown to have positive effects on those that are suffering from the pain and distress of cancer and other serious diseases.
Massage therapy can help reduce pain, control stress, and improve quality of life for those dealing with mesothelioma. Massage can also help relieve the nausea that many patients suffer when undergoing chemotherapy. Massage therapy takes many forms – from relaxing to therapeutic. Seek the type that best suits your symptoms and personal preferences.
Before you try treating your mesothelioma with an alternative therapy, you should discuss its possible benefits and side effects with your doctor. If you are using any alternative mesothelioma treatment, you should tell your doctors about it. These alternative treatments should never be used instead of medical treatment. Be aware that these therapies may be expensive; some are not paid for by health insurance. You should consider asking the therapist for evidence of how the therapy has helped others, possibly by giving you references.
