Welcome, and may you find what you are looking for.  My intent is to offer comfort and relief from the stresses and symptoms that follow you every day.
 
The information contained within these pages is meant to reassure, to educate, and to encourage you to seek out a therapist whom has had training in massage for someone currently coping with a diagnosis, or undergoing treatment for a life threatening or life altering condition.  There is reason to hope for relief of some of your most troubling symptoms.
 
If you are one of the many living with a life threatening or life altering disease such as cancer, most importantly, if you are seeking a massage therapist to help you, be sure to ask alot of questions!  Where were you trained? How long have you been doing this work?  What special adjustments will be made for me?  Better yet, seek out a therapist in your area, recognized by the Society for Oncology Massage by visiting their website.  Click on therapist locator at
 
 
You will also find a wealth of information about massage therapy and your disease.  Listed there you'll find many studies that have been conducted over the past 20 years.  The studies get better with time, and the results are promising.
 
 Massage and Cancer 
 
The use of complementary therapies during cancer treatment and recovery is becoming widely accepted by the medical community and patients in the United States.  Gentle, nurturing massage therapy, in particular, has been shown to reduce anxiety, ease pain and nausea and improve sleep among cancer patients.  When provided by a licensed, experienced and specially trained therapist, massage can be an important  component of your overall treatment and recovery plan.
