Description:

The intention of this 24-hour course is to give you the basic knowledge and experience to begin to work safely and effectively with clients who are dealing with, or who have gone through cancer treatment. You will gain a sound basis for therapy decisions and begin to develop the facility to communicate with and educate your clients about the reasons for your decisions. Gaining comfort in these areas will improve the quality of your work and allow for the rewarding experience of working with clients during these stressful times and assist in improving their quality of life.

There are many different types of client presentations in massage therapy that we take in every day and decide how best to help our clients live more comfortably in their bodies. When a client presents with a cancer diagnosis, is in cancer treatment, or is a cancer survivor, the situation becomes more complex. It can bring up our own fears and questions about what to do, or what not to do. We want to offer help and we want to do no harm. If we are unsure of ourselves, that affects the quality of our work, and we potentially risk doing harm to our clients. The remedy for this complex situation is knowledge and experience.
