Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic form of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as gentle stroking, kneading, and sometimes specific muscle treatments to help the body improve movement and circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress, and greater flexibility. Hydrotherapy and muscle movement techniques are also often employed; and if requested, aromatherapy is also provided .
People experiencing cancer and treatments for cancer have unique needs which must be addressed to make sure that a massage session is beneficial to their health. Oncology Massage is a modified form of massage therapy that accomodates those with specific situations created by cancer or its treatments. I focus my attention on creating a gentle, nurturing environment that is meant to support mind and body during this time for you or your loved one.
Please know that this type of massage therapy is appropriate for someone with cancer in their health history, as cancer treatment and its effects can last a lifetime.
I provide gentle nurturing massage therapy to those in later years to help increase movement and elevate mood. Because of body changes that naturally happen over life, my massage therapy sessions accomodate specific needs due to aging, lack of movement or illness. These sessions are offered to you while sitting in a chair, wheelchair, massage table or hospital bed.
