The Oncology Massage Foundation is the first phase in learning about providing massage to people with cancer. Topics covered will include the primary treatments for cancer of surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy and the side effects of those treatments. The student will learn the massage modifications needed to provide a safe and therapeutic massage based upon clinical data and critical thinking. This three-day course will also offer the student the opportunity to learn about the disease process of cancer, various types of cancer, and how to modify massage for people with lymphedema or risk of lymphedema. During hands-on practice, the student will demonstrate proper positioning, pace and adjustments for pressure based on the information given in written and verbal intake. On the third day, the student will have the opportunity to put into practice everything learned by providing oncology massage during two client clinics with cancer survivors.
