TO TEACH US:
INTRO TO ONCOLOGY MASSAGE, 16 CEUS
COURSE DESCRIPTION: INTRODUCTION TO ONCOLOGY MASSAGE 16 CEUS
This course is for the practicing massage therapist to learn the basics of cancer, cancer treatment and the short and long-term side effects. It covers how to work safely and effectively with a client who has had a diagnosis of cancer. The class will cover a few ways to modify a massage to address safely and comfort concerns before, during and after treatment and will also provide information on when to refer a client to a specialist rather than risk harm. This class will be a combination of lecture, class participation, and hands-on practice. It covers much of the same material as the 24hr CE Oncology Massage Essentials class, but does not include a clinic with cancer survivors or provide sufficient hours or practice to quality as a Preferred Practitioner with the Society for Oncology Massage.
ITEMS NEEDED FOR CLASS:
*MASSAGE TABLE, *2 SETS OF SHEETS, *4 BATH TOWELS
Registration at 7:30am on Oct 5th, Class starts 8am.
