    Abstract

    Massage, as a complementary therapy is no longer controversial in many settings, such as palliative care. Within the field of haematological oncology however, there is still major concern regarding its safety. The aims of this study were firstly to show that massage with and without essential oils can be given to isolated haematology patients safely and that physiological and psychological benefits are evident following such therapy. Secondly to demonstrate that such benefits are manifest following single sessions of massage.
