This class welcomes both Massage Therapists and Estheticians!

Massage for people living with cancer is now recognized by many health care professionals as a safe and recommended therapy for relaxation, stress and pain management, and so much more.  Many health care facilities now incorporate integrative medicine into their cancer programs, treatment and infusion centers. With proper training, skilled touch and confidence, massage therapists and estheticians can safely help a client manage discomfort, while working within their SOP, roles and boundaries of their profession. In this three-day comprehensive course, the focus is 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. Current information, precautions, contraindications, safety for the therapist, esthetician, and client, as well as medication guidelines are just some of the important considerations taught in this class. Techniques for lymphedema, neuropathy, scar tissue and gentle touch for the medically frail, as well as draping and positioning are demonstrated and practiced. Self-awareness exercises, ideas for self-care, guest speakers and discussions about personal experiences with cancer as well as demos and hands-on practice on each other round out this three day S4OM foundational course. Must be a licensed massage therapist or esthetician and carry current massage insurance to attend this training. Please bring writing materials, a set of sheets, shorts, or capris and a tee shirt or tank top and your favorite massage cream or lotion to class.  Class size is limited.
