Oncology Massage 101
24 Continuing Education Units
Approved for Continuing Education: NCBTMB
Tuition: $475 until November 8th (increases to $500 on November 6th)
Prerequisites: Must be a practicing massage therapist.
This 3-day course provides therapists with the essential skills and knowledge to be prepared to treat a variety of clients who are affected by cancer. Oncology Massage 101 is ideal as a starting place not only for therapists who want to specialize with this population, but also for those who simply want to know what they don’t know so they can make appropriate referrals and also have the confidence to work with clients affected by cancer for those times when these clients unexpectedly show up on their tables. This course includes a hands-on clinic. (Practitioners who complete this course qualify to register as Preferred Practitioners with the Society for Oncology Massage.)
The class will conclude with a supervised, full-body, one-hour, client-centered oncology massage session with a client affected by cancer treatment.
