Hands on HealthCare Massage Therapy and Wellness Day Spa Massage Therapists and Estheticians Volunteer Their Time for National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

(PRWEB) August 31, 2013

Hands On HealthCare Massage Therapy and Wellness Day Spa recognizes that September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Hands On will be raising money for Embrace Kids Foundation and The Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation and Avery a 3-year-old child who is currently battling Neuroblastoma, a type of childhood cancer. Avery is the daughter of Shara, who worked at HOHCMT for about a decade before moving to New Jersey with her husband Seth.

Most of the massage therapists and estheticians at Hands On will be donating their time in order to raise awareness of Childhood Cancer and hopefully raise donations as well. They will incorporate the “In Honor Of Avery Ear Massage", a five-minute ear massage that is designed to nurture and pamper. A donation is optional. The techniques used for this massage are so simple yet so effective that Hands On has released their protocol to the public in hopes that this massage can be offered to the masses.

The therapists that have already committed to participating are Jolie, Carlos, Andrea, Carrie, Ann Marie, Jody, Brenda, Carol, Maureen, Sue, Claudia, Katie, Monica, Michelle and Elaine. Marla Kaplan-Pelle, Director states, "I am thrilled that most of the staff is excited to be able to participate in this event! The staff is looking forward to raising funds for these terrific causes!"

Ear Massage is not new. Ear reflexology has been around for thousands of years. However, you certainly don’t need an understanding of ear reflexology to receive all the soothing, relaxing and well-being benefits of an ear massage. It is common knowledge that Massage therapy often helps mitigate pain, anxiety, depression and other side effects often related to cancer and/or chemo therapy effect. Ear massage is simple and easy.

People often say that cancer “doesn't hurt” But cancer very often can and does hurt and when it comes to children and childhood cancers. There are many causes of pain. Traditionally, the ears are neglected when giving a massage. However, the ears can often be massaged when everything else hurts. Rubbing a child’s ears can send happy feelings into the body by triggering the release of brain endorphins.

Young children often can not verbalize the level of pain nor any fear or anxiety. Parent and caregivers can be at a loss as to how they can participate in their child’s healthcare and make them more comfortable. Ear Massage can often be play in important role in pain and stress relief. Ear massage is an excellent relaxation technique and can part of the pain-relief arsenal often necessary with childhood cancer.
