Cancer Care 
Oncology massage may be performed throughout an individual's treatment and beyond, according to physician's recommendation and approval.  This therapy can play a vital role in relieving common side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments.  During an immensely stressful time in one's life, the patient and their family members can look forward to therapy that feels good with positive memories.  Everyone deserves the opportunity to feel like a nurtured individual and not just a medical patient!  The goal of every session is to provide an increase in overall comfort while he or she may be undergoing more invasive treatments.  Massage and nurturing touch for persons with cancer (or recently undergone cancer therapy) can help relieve pain, nausea, fatigue while helping to boost immunity.  *Please see my Cancer Care page for more information.
