Statistics Canada reported that in 2014 an estimated 24,400 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 5,000 will die from it. In addition, 1 in 9 women is expected to develop breast cancer at some point during her lifetime (after age 20) and that 1 in 29 will die from it.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian women and while its cause is unknown, early detection is vital - followed by proper medical treatment.

Massage therapy has been shown to offer a number of benefits for breast cancer patients. The therapists at Academy Massage are both skilled and qualified to perform procedures that have proven helpful.
