Introduction to Oncology Massage: Practical Approaches to Working with a Client with Cancer
Instructor: Colleen Wolfe, LMT
NCBTMB AP#1377
7/20 9am-5pm
7 CE Credits | $140

This course has been developed to provide massage therapists with basic information regarding working with clients who are active oncology patients. We will discuss the clinical definition of cancer, most common types of cancer, oncology treatments and their side effects, patient/client challenges, practitioner challenges, application of various bodywork modalities.

The purpose of this course is to expel the myth that massage can spread cancer and therefore cancer patients should not receive bodywork. This course also aims to give bodywork practitioners an understanding of what a client with cancer may be experiencing physically and psychologically from initial diagnosis through treatment and into survivor-ship. This course is not a certification program and should not be perceived or advertised as such.
