Do you need support through cancer or know someone who does? Light touch massage may just be the perfect blend of relaxation & nurturing.
Oncology Massage Therapy (OMT) can be performed prior to/during &/or after cancer treatment. OMT is appropriate for the frail, elderly, unwell, palliative care, those with chronic and complex disease and those with poor immunity and auto inflammatory conditions.
OMT Light Touch massage allow the client a safe and nurturing touch to relax and rejuvenate the body (enhance relaxation so to let the body do what it need to do.) The goal is to take the client to relaxation response. The work is gentle and light. It is also appropriate for the frail, elderly, unwell, palliative care, those with chronic and complex disease and those with poor immunity and auto inflammatory conditions. The massage can we performed anywhere and in various positions. Oil may or may not be used and clothes can be kept on if needed. The benefits of the relaxation response from light massage techniques can be amazing.
ALL our therapists are fully trained & understand all the precautions & guidelines. We can also make adjustments for clients as needed. Clients often fall asleep during treatment. This is a positive thing.
