Oncology massage is a unique approach to massage therapy based in compassion and specialized massage to help you manage your experience with the various side effects of cancer including fatigue, anxiety/depression, stress, muscle/joint pain, neuropathy, hot flashes, diabetes, and arthritis. Oncology massage is a compassionate touch that uses light, slow, steady movements, working with the central nervous system to help the body relax. Deep tissue massage is never a good idea when going through cancer.
If you are currently receiving treatment or have ever received treatment for cancer in your life the safest way for you to get massage is to have a massage therapist who has had appropriate training in the specifics of cancer and cancer treatment and how to use a knowledge of those specifics to provide safely adapted massage therapy for all stages of your cancer journey to help you relax and focus on getting your body, mind and spirit back into balance.
I work with all types of cancer including Breast, Lung, Prostate, Colon, Leukemia, Melanoma, Lymphoma, and Neuroendocrine cancers. I also work with those that have Diabetes, Fibromyalgia.
