Oncology Scar Massage Therapy

EL Beauty is excited to announce the introduction of a new treatment: Oncology Scar Massage

This innovative therapeutic technique focuses on helping individuals who have undergone cancer treatments by alleviating scar tissue discomfort and promoting healing. Headed up by skilled beauty therapist Emma Louth, EL Beauty is proud to offer this specialised service.



What is Oncology Scar Massage?

Oncology Scar Massage is a gentle, non-invasive massage therapy specifically designed to address the unique needs of cancer survivors. It involves a series of specialised techniques aimed at reducing pain, discomfort, and restrictions caused by surgical scars, radiation, or other cancer-related interventions. The treatment focuses on improving circulation, promoting lymphatic drainage, and softening scar tissue to enhance mobility and restore physical and emotional well-being.

Who can benefit from Oncology Scar Massage?

This specialised massage therapy is suitable for individuals who have undergone cancer treatments such as surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy. Whether the scars are a result of mastectomy, lumpectomy, lymph node removal, or reconstructive surgery, Oncology Scar Massage offers a healing touch. The treatment is tailored to accommodate the specific needs and limitations of each patient, ensuring a safe and effective healing experience.

Benefits of Oncology Scar Massage:

  • Pain Relief: By using gentle massage techniques, Oncology Scar Massage can help alleviate discomfort associated with scar tissue, reducing pain and tightness.
  • Improved Range of Motion: The therapeutic touch of an experienced therapist can help soften scar tissue, improve flexibility, and restore normal range of motion.
  • Emotional Healing: Cancer treatments can leave individuals with emotional scars. Oncology Scar Massage provides a nurturing environment that promotes relaxation, reduces anxiety, and supports emotional well-being.
  • Enhanced Self-Confidence: By improving the appearance and texture of scars, this treatment helps patients regain self-confidence and embrace their bodies post-treatment.
  • Overall Well-being: The therapeutic benefits of Oncology Scar Massage extend beyond the physical. Patients often experience improved sleep, reduced stress, and an increased sense of overall well-being.

At EL Beauty, the introduction of Oncology Scar Massage represents a significant step forward in the field of cancer survivorship care. This specialised treatment offers individuals who have undergone cancer treatments a gentle and effective path towards physical and emotional healing. Beauty continues to provide innovative services that empower and support those on their journey to recovery.

Met Emma through breast cancer navigators. What can I say, I am seeing Emma for Scar therapy and issues with lymph node surgery. After 2 visits there is a massive difference in the movement of my arm and the sensitivity from surgery. I don’t know what she does with her hands but she works wonders. I count the days to my next appointment.
