  • Massage for Cancer Care

    About this course:

    Massage in Cancer Care – Oncology Massage Training.   When training in an entry level massage course most (if not all) massage therapists were taught that massage would move cancer cells around the body or massage for anyone with cancer was completely contraindicated.  This is not true and this course is designed to give you confidence to know what massage is appropriate and when.  Nearly all cancer treatments leave some imprint in the body and massage therapists need to know how to adjust for that lingering imprint so massage can be safely, effectively and enjoyably offered to EVERY PERSON who has received treatment for cancer.
