Almost 40% of Americans will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime and every one of us are affected by it.
While medical science continues to deliver amazing progress in fighting cancer, make no mistake that the disease still takes a devastating physical and emotional toll. A gentle massage isn’t capable of repairing the damage done by cancer, but it can give some measure of relief during this stressful time.
Our therapists and estheticians are specially certified to understand the complexities of what is appropriate for individuals with compromised lymphatic systems, ports, picc lines, as well as the other complications that go far beyond what a standard therapist is trained to handle. The personalizations that will be made to the treatment are typically related to session length, pressure, positioning and areas of specific compromise or concern.
These proven treatments are complementary to your medical therapies and are focused on your emotional well-being as much as your body. We strongly advise that you consult your oncologist before scheduling this treatment. We are happy to answer any questions you or your oncologist have about the protocols for an oncology massage or facial, just let us know.
We are able to provide couples massages where one person receives an oncology massage and the other receives any of our other massage services, allowing you to share this gift of relaxation with the one you love.
Our therapists are certified through the wonderful medical experts at Greet the Day, the Orange County-based pioneer in developing this specialized modality. We’re proud to support them and the amazing work they’re doing every day.
