Certified oncology massage

Certified oncology massage is a client-specific, customized massage session delivered by a Certified oncology massage therapist designed to meet the unique and changing needs of someone in treatment for cancer or with a history of cancer treatment. A safe massage plan generally revolves around the side effects (both short- and long-term) of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.

Your Certified Oncology Massage Therapist should be able to:

  • Understand the primary considerations in providing bodywork for people in or with a history of cancer treatment.
  • Evaluate bodywork site, positioning and pressure modifications that pertain to medical devices, surgical procedures and drug treatment related side effects.
  • Review current clinical research about massage in the oncology setting.
  • Identify acupressure points useful in addressing some common cancer treatment related side effects.
  • Provide a therapeutic oncology massage on the third workshop day for someone in or with a history of cancer treatment.
