We understand that the diagnosis of cancer and its treatment takes a large toll on the mind, body and spirit. The goal of oncology massage is to provide comfort-oriented massage or touch, in an effort to soothe, nurture, and piece the body together.
Our massage therapists licensed in oncology massage are aware of the needs of those who have gone through cancer treatment, such as adjusting for the risk of lymphedema, fatigue, bruising, immunosuppression, and the side effects of trauma to the body and spirit. The key to safety and comfort for our clients is in the adjustment of pressure, length of session, positioning, and avoidance of affected areas of body.
All people with cancer or recovering from its treatment – regardless of the severity of their condition – can receive comfort-oriented touch therapies including Swedish massage, Shiatsu, Reiki, and fascial release techniques.
Bodywork treatment during treatment and immediate recovery is undemanding, supportive and soothing. As the client returns, massage sessions can be part of improving function through range of motion techniques or scar release, or re-establish body image.
Physician approval is required.
