Caregivers using the techniques achieved significant reductions in stress/anxiety, pain, fatigue, depression, nausea, and an assortment of miscellaneous symptoms.

You have in your heart and hands the ability to reduce suffering in a loved one with cancer.  Give them the gift of touch, and both of you will be rewarded.
