Everyone is unique....different body types, issues, and medical history...so your massage treatment should be unique too. I use a blend of techniques (Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, myofascial release, passive range of motion) to create a customized session for your specific needs that day. Therapeutic massage has been scientifically proven to decrease pain and anxiety. It can be an excellent therapy for a variety of conditions such as tension headaches, chronic pain, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel, and PTSD to name a few.
Oncology massage is Swedish relaxation massage that is modified for gentle pressure and comfortable positioning. This type of massage, when delivered by a trained therapist (me!), is safe for any cancer patient at any stage of treatment or cancer history. Massage has been proven to reduce pain and reduce anxiety and may also provide relief from the variety of side effects of cancer treatment such as: nausea, insomnia, neuropothy, depression, muscle aches, and fatigue.
