Children's Cancer Woes Eases With Massage

Montreal-based massage therapist Lyse Lussier works on children with cancer in the hospital and and their home. She is program director for a non-profit children's cancer center called Leucan.

Massage as non-verbal communication is especially valuable for children because it tells them the person touching them isn't troubled in the least by their mangled bodies or the tubes running into and out of them, she added.

"Massage allows contact with the body that tells the person this body contains more than pain, that dreams also reside there and that healing can take place."
