Oncology Massage

Massage for the cancer patient can be a concern. There can be so many questions to be answered.

  • Can I get a massage while I am getting chemotherapy or radiation?
  • Can I get a massage if I have metastatic bone cancer?
  • Can I get a massage if I can't lay on my stomach comfortably?
  • What are my options if I have drains? An ostomy? Catheters?
  • Will a therapist understand my blood counts?

These are all valid concerns. The answer to these questions is YES. Helping thousands of patients while massaging full time in the oncology setting for the last 6 years, I am very familiar with the needs of someone going through cancer treatment. I understand the challenges and the anxiety that comes with seeking massage outside of a clinical environment. Rest assured I know all the correct questions to ask and the precautions to take to support your cancer journey whether it is conventional or alternative.

Swedish Massage

I have found in my 12+ years of treating patients that less can be more. I have developed through the years a massage technique that promotes deep relaxation, relief to tight aching muscles and calm to the nervous system. I do not believe in "no pain, no gain" to the point of my clients feeling sore for multiple days after their session.  I have developed a wide array of massage techniques that I draw from to create a treatment session that is created individually for each client I treat.
