The focus of an oncology massage session is to inspire relaxation and address whatever issues you may have in a supportive and nurturing way. My highly specialized training allows me a level of understanding of what it means to have a cancer diagnosis at any time in your life.
It is not a type of massage therapy, but an in-depth education allowing me to take considerations and adjustments due to any treatment or issues you may have. Oncology Massage is the adaptation of massage techniques to safely support anyone affected by cancer or its treatments at any time in your life.
Whether you are newly diagnosed, in treatment, or in remission. These gentle sessions, which focus on comfort and relaxation, can help you get through the stress of cancer treatment as well as provide relief from the many and varied side effects of chemotherapy and radiation and hormonal therapies.
Oncology Massage benefits include:
- Decreased stress and anxiety
- Reduced pain, muscle aches and fatigue
- Less nausea
- Improved sleep
- Decrease neuropathy due to chemotherapy
- Scar tissue release post surgery, mastectomy, radiation and reconstruction
- Eased isolation
- Enhanced body image
- Greater sense of well-being
- Increase range of motion
I have had many years of training in Oncology Massage and worked with thousands of clients. My goal is to create a session perfectly suited to your individual situation and needs.
Whether you were just diagnosed and awaiting surgery, going through treatment like chemo, radiation, hormonal therapies or you are many years down the road, I offer you the comfort of a safe, effective and deeply relaxing session.

- tumor sites or metastasis
- radiation site
- blood clots
- lymph node removal
- bone fragility due to radiation
- peripheral neuropathy
- low blood cell counts
- reconstruction sites
- medical devices such as expanders, ports, drains
- Lymphedema and lymphedema risk
