Webinar #1 Course Description:
For decades, the massage profession was held back from
working with people with cancer by an old myth: that massage, by increasing
circulation, might contribute to cancer spread. In this first
webinar, we shine new light on this old belief, and look at new ways to
re-educate ourselves, the public, and the profession about this common concern.
Massage in Cancer Care Webinar Series
Massage therapy is a growing part of cancer care, and skilled touch is being
welcomed into hospitals, clinics, and the daily lives of people with
cancer. In this 6-part webinar series, share the excitement about
the growing specialty of oncology massage therapy, and learn about some
important principles and practices.
Tracy Walton provides an overview of the ways massage could benefit people with
cancer, and provides an update of research on this topic. You will
clear up some sticking points, take a fresh look at the old myth that massage
could spread cancer, and learn ways to re-educate and reassure people about
this common concern. Tracy highlights some of the safety essentials
followed in oncology massage, and the standards of practice in the field. She
introduces resources and recommendations for further training, research, and
information. At the end of each presentation, she will answer
questions submitted live by webinar participants.
