Oncology massage (small)

Massage therapy for individuals with cancer used to be contraindicated. Nowadays with the right training and experience, massage therapists can safely use skilled touch to help soothe pain, discomfort, insomnia, anxiety, and much more! In this one day, fast-paced, comprehensive course, we focus on what we CAN DO for those living with cancer or are in early remission using safe techniques to not only touch someone physically, but spiritually and emotionally as well. Cancer massage research, myths and facts, precautions, contraindications, considerations, safety for the therapist and the client, medication guidelines, and how the mind-body connection is so important in this work are taught in this fast-paced, interactive class. Safe techniques for lymphedema, neuropathy, and touch for the medically frail, as well as draping and positioning, are demonstrated. This is a lecture class only – with some demo and no hands-on practice.
