Limmanda Mikini Collins, LMT, AMTA
Having lost many friends and family to cancer, I have always wanted to work with patients battling this disease. This course gave me a better understanding about cancer and how I can expand my knowledge on the subject as it relates to massage therapy. I look forward to learning more ways I can help my clients recover emotionally and physcially.
E. diSpirito, NCTMB
I loved this course. My mother had cancer and I wished I had known then what I know now. Of course my prejudice was showing as I expected this course to only be about breast cancer. This was a good reminder that there are other diseases out there.
S. Dombrauskas, LMT, AMTA
This course enabled me to better understand the cancer process and that there are effective methods to help ease the client. It really opened my eyes and helped me to realize that cancer does not mean no massage. Thanks!!
Sharon Butler, RMT
These short articles are interesting and contain valuable information for safety precautions. They are a good starting point of inquiry for continuing education.
Tanya Muhleisen, LMT
With alternative and holistic healthcare services now being offered to cancer patients, and as an Oncology Massage therapist, I believe it is crucial to be informed in cancer massage treatments. This course was extremely valuable.
