Cancer and Massage


I am one of the therapists who use to be fearful of working with cancer clients. Since I took Dr. Johnson’s online course, I am no longer afraid. I realized other therapists, clients, family members, and healthcare professionals had a fear of cancer clients taking massage therapy.

I learned that massage actually benefits cancer client. We as therapist can teach family members some basic techniques and this helps them with their fears and assist them in providing compassion to their loved one.

We can also teach clients to feel better with self-massage.

Finally, a big shock to me was that we can teach healthcare professional about the benefits of massage. And thereby allow prescriptions for massage clients.

In our class, we used Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapist by Susan G. Salvo.
