of Oncology Massage, Reiki, Lymph Drainage & Yoga –
Oncology massage is the adaptation of massage techniques to safely nurture the body of someone affected by cancer or its treatments.
Oncology massage benefits can include:
Reduced anxiety, pain, nausea, and fatigue
Improved sleep, and enhanced body image
Essential aspects of an oncology massage therapist’s skill set are an informed understanding of the pathophysiology of cancer; the side effects of cancer treatments, such as medications, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation; and the ability to modify massage techniques in order to adapt for these side effects, as well as for the disease. The goal is to support the immune response, increase relaxation and decrease stress to the body.

- MLD uses light, rhythmic, precise movement, pressure, and sequences to move the lymph.
- MLD helps the body heal more quickly from injuries, surgeries, chronic conditions, edema, and lymphedema.
- MLD is indicated for : pre-surgery preparation and post-surgical swelling, pre/post cosmetic surgery, sinusitis, sprains/strains, whiplash, migraines, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, lyme disease, rheumatoid arthritis,
CranioSacral Therapy – What is it?
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) honors the body’s self healing abilities. CST is a light hands on approach that helps release restrictions that are causing dysfunction. It supports healing of all the body’s systems. It was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger
- The CranioSacral System is comprised of the membrane layers and fluid that surround, protect, nourish, and cleanse the brain and spinal cord. It is interconnected with the entire body through the fascia.
- CranioSacral Therapy works by finding areas in the body that are not moving well and then using gentle techniques to help the body increase balanced motion. In Dr. Upledger words “motion is health and stasis is disease”.
- CranioSacral Therapy releases restrictions in the connective tissue web to improve form and function of the
CNS. CranioSacral work is recommended for: migraines and headaches, concussions, chronic neck and back pain, chronic fatigue, scoliosis, TMJ, stress, motor-coordination impairments, and CNS disorders. – Often symptoms you experience in one area of your body are caused by restrictions elsewhere that seem unrelated.
