Abstract
Massage therapy is a complementary therapy that is used by children and
adults with cancer. This presentation will describe the types of studies that
have been conducted to date and how these have informed the
development of a program of research. The research program includes a
variety of studies involving children diagnosed with cancer and their family
across the trajectory of the illness as well as massage therapists. The goal of
this program of research is to understand how massage therapy contributes
to comfort and symptom management as well as its limitations.
