This 3-day course provides therapists with the essential skills and knowledge to be prepared to treat a variety of clients who are affected by cancer.

 

Oncology Massage 101 is ideal as a starting place not only for therapists who want to specialize with this population, but also for those who simply want to know what they don’t know so they can make appropriate referrals and also have the confidence to work with clients affected by cancer for those times when these clients unexpectedly show up on their tables.

 

The class will conclude with a supervised, full-body, one-hour, client-centered oncology massage session with a client affected by cancer treatment.
