Oncology Massage
Client-specific customized session designed to meet the unique and changing needs of someone in treatment for cancer or with a history of cancer treatment. Lets develop a SAFE massage plan revolving around side effects (both short and long-term) from chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
Why is it important for a massage therapist to have oncology massage training?
There is a profound difference from going to an oncology-trained Massage therapist than the local Foot-Spa to save a buck. "Knowing what to do, when to do it and why."

Research from the Medical Field on Oncology Massage Effects:
"Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City is a national leader in cancer treatment.  Researchers recently surveyed patients who had therapeutic massage added to their treatment regimens.  Over a three year period, results impressively confirmed the value of massage.  Anxiety levels decreased by 52%, pain by 40%, fatigue by 41%, depression by 32%, and nausea by 21%.  Researchers concluded that massage is a "markedly effective, uncommonly noninvasive and inexpensive way" to control symptoms for cancer patients."
