Oncology Massage

Karina is a fully qualified Oncology Massage therapist that can provide a specific gentle, non invasive treatment for clients that are experiencing the challenges of cancer treatments, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and chronic illnesses whether they are in recovery or at end of life. 

Oncology massage does not treat the cancer but the side effects that often are associated from the conventional cancer treatments. Oncology massage can reduce:

  • Pain

  • Anxiety

  • Fatigue

  • Nausea

  • Depression

  • Insomnia

To deliver a safe Oncology Massage the therapist must first understand and comprehend the complexities of cancer treatments, the processes that the client is undergoing from the type of cancer and the treatment that follows after surgery such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy and medications.

Once this has been established the therapist will then be able to design the right treatment that is safe, gentle and soothing.

Oncology Massage therapists are trained to work safely with ports, catheters, stoma’s and wounds to ensure the treatment is comfortable and relaxing.

Home, hospital, nursing home and palliative visits are available.

Always consult your doctor before considering on any treatment program.

Karina has been a massage therapist for 20 years and has a deep love and compassion for all beings and understands the many levels of care when it comes to complex health issues.
