Massage Therapy for people living with cancer has become a recognized treatment by medical professionals.  Many hospitals now incorporate Integrative Medicine into their cancer programs and treatment centers. With the proper training and experience, massage therapists can safely use skilled touch to help manage pain, discomfort, insomnia, anxiety and more. In this three-day comprehensive course, we focus on what we CAN DO for those living with cancer or who are in early remission, and safe techniques used to not only touch someone physically, but spiritually and emotionally as well. Also taught in this class are precautions, contraindications, considerations, safety for the therapist and the client, medication guidelines, and how the mind-body connection is so important in this work. Safe techniques for lymphedema, neuropathy, scar tissue release and touch for the medically frail, as well as draping and positioning are demonstrated and practiced. Self-awareness exercises, short videos and readings, guest speakers and discussions about personal experiences with cancer round out this three day S4OM foundational course. Must be a licensed message therapist and carry insurance to attend this training. Please bring writing materials, a set of sheets, shorts, and a tee shirt or tank top and your favorite massage cream or lotion to class. No massage table or equipment is needed.  Class size is limited.

Practicum:  On the third day of class students will have the opportunity to practice what they’ve learned on individuals with a cancer diagnosis or who are in early remission.

After students have successfully completed the 3 day, 24 CE course, they will receive a certificate of completion (not a certification) from S4OM, and be placed on their Preferred Providers list on their website..
