As with any good massage session, an oncology massage is different for each person. Our oncology massage training course which specifies the use of  Jennifer Young and Weleda products  is a client-specific, customized massage session designed to meet the unique and changing needs of someone journeying through cancer or with a past history of cancer. A safe massage plan generally revolves around the side effects (both short- and long-term) of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
Oncology massage training  and Oncology skincare treatments must only be provided by a therapist who has received training in the specifics of cancer and cancer treatment. When you are giving a massage designed for cancer patients, you are giving traditional, established massage therapy techniques that have been adapted to account for the individuals unique health situation in addition to using specific products designed with the cancer patient or former cancer patient in mind.
