One of our most popular weekend workshops, Oncology Massage, is coming up on the weekend of September 16th-17th, 2017. Our beloved instructor, Vickie Torrey, explains more about what Oncology Massage is and what to expect from the workshop below.

 

Vickie is from Savannah, Georgia. She teaches ethics, communication, psychology of touch, and oncology massage. Oncology massage is a beautiful mix of Eastern and Western modalities. It’s a little bit of Swedish, a little bit of Shiatsu, some Reflexology, Polarity Therapy, and some Esalen Massage all mixed up for this beautiful customized massage session.

 

Each day in my class you will explore the world of cancer, whether it’s cancer pathology or the deep emotions that impact the cancer journey. You will also learn hands on techniques (integrated therapies) that you can use to create a customized massage session for your patient or your loved one. This oncology massage training is open to anyone whose heart is open to attend. In this line of work–working with cancer patients or people who are experiencing life altering health conditions–it is EXTREMELY important that we take care of ourselves. So, each day we will have time for self-care, whether it’s walking along the beach or quiet time, whether it’s meditation or yoga. The beautiful thing about this compassionate light touch is that it is transferrable, so anyone who is experiencing Parkinson’s disease, MS, ALS, HIV/Aids, or any kind of life altering health condition can use this compassionate touch.
