Cancer Care 
Oncology massage may be indicated for anyone who has either received cancer treatments in the past or presently undergoing. This gentle 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. The goal of every session is to provide an increase in overall comfort while he or she may be undergoing more invasive treatments.  Oncology Massage can help relieve pain, nausea and fatigue while helping to boost patient's immunity. Special precautions are taken with medical devices, surgical sites, scars, and lymph node removals.
