We have specifically designed this course for working massage therapists who would like to continue treating their clients diagnosed with cancer with confidence. The course is designed to educate the therapist with the knowledge needed to work safely with clients during and after their cancer treatment. 

Oncology Massage is a form of light touch, non-invasive massage with slow and steady movements to help your client’s body relax. It’s a holistic based therapy based on compassion, care, and specialised massage treatments to help the clients manage both their physical and emotional reactions to cancer. 

Much of the evidence around oncology massage indicates that it helps clients feel good and promotes a natural way to help them relax and cope with:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Headaches/Pain
  • Improved relaxation/sleep
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea

Generally, massage therapy can help lift their mood, improve their sleep and enhance their well-being.

Oncology Massage Therapists are trained to help understand that clients have their own personal experience with cancer. By the end of this course, you’ll have some great techniques to be able to offer an individualised massage treatment, to comfort, nurture and support clients in their own healing journey.
