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 is making 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 a 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 many other complications that go far beyond what a standard therapist is trained to handle. The personalizations that will be made to the massage 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 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; please let us know.
Our therapists are certified through the wonderful medical experts at Greet the Day, the Orange County-based pioneer in developing this specialized modality. We encourage you to support them and the amazing work they’re doing every day.
