Webinar #2 Course Description:
Research and interest in massage
therapy are growing, and there is special interest in the role of massage in
cancer care. In this second webinar, we summarize the best research in
oncology massage, and take a good look at what it tells us and what it
doesn't. We will develop some clear, fair, and accurate claims about
massage and cancer symptom relief.
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.
