*Students are strongly encouraged to have taken Oncology Massage 101 or other foundational course taught by a Society for Oncology Massage Recognized Education Provider, however, this is not required.

This 4-day course provides a unique opportunity to work directly with pediatric patients in the hospital setting. The first half of the course addresses pediatric-specific pathologies, and the essential considerations and communication strategies necessary for working with this population. Lauren and Lucille will then guide participants as they provide hands-on care to a variety of pediatric patients in the hospital.

Lauren Cates and Lucille Eddy have been working as massage therapists in the hospital setting since 2005. As the directors of Healwell’s hospital-based education and service programs they have spent thousands of hours providing continuing education and hands-on therapies with both pediatric and adult populations. They bring experience working with pediatric palliative care patients ranging from primary chromosomal abnormalities to advanced and complicated diseases like Tay-Sachs, sickle cell anemia, and cancer.  There is no patient that is too frail to be touched by a person with the right training.
