A place of caring through healing touch ~ Oncology massage is a safe, gentle, complementary touch therapy based in both compassion and specialized massage treatments.
Oncology massage is a safe, gentle, complementary touch therapy based in both compassion and specialized massage treatments. Massage can help you feel better during your treatment and helps improve your sense of well-being by easing pain and discomfort, depression, fatigue and other symptoms from cancer and its treatments. Benefits can include improved relaxation, sleep and immune function as well as relieving anxiety and pain and can bring a sense of calm.
Oncology massage is unique in that the massage techniques are modified and adapted to safely support people living with cancer in all stages of treatment, recovery, healing and continued wellbeing. With a training in Oncology Massage by Tracey Walton I bring an understanding of the effects of treatments, medications, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. With gained knowledge and discussion with client prior to appointment, I am able to create a safe and healing experience which can bring comfort and nurtures and supports you in your healing journey.
Extra time is taken to create comfortable and supportive body positioning, and the touch is gentle, with light flowing strokes and supportive holding. If you are actively undergoing chemotherapy, please book your massage for 2 days BEFORE treatment. If you have any questions please reach out to talk about your massage needs. I look forward to supporting you in your massage wellness. In a abundance of Gratitude and Grace ~ Pamela
