Practical Workshop & Online Course with sma member susan findlay

Here are some highlights about what you will take away from attending the cancer massage course:

This course leads to a fully accredited qualification as a Certified Oncology Massage Therapist.  It focuses on developing your understanding of common conditions of cancer and how this will influence your work. It will include how to modify your massage techniques along with learning some new ones specific to a variety of cancer conditions. Included in this field of work is home care advice that will have a positive impact and support your manual therapy.

You will be given the opportunity to put into practice what you have learnt on the cancer massage course within real life conditions, providing a massage session that takes your clients through the assessment, planning and application process along with suitable home care suggestions.

Here's how it works:

  • The Online-Only Oncology Massage course teaches you all the technical information and needs to be completed if you plan to go onto the following course days, but it is offered as a stand-alone course.
  • Day 1 Practical Oncology Massage -
    This will teach you how to modify your manual therapy based on real life case studies for common cancer conditions.
  • Day 2 Practical Oncology Massage -
