Oncology Massage (medical massage) is a specialised from of remedial massage that is very gentle and profoundly relaxing. It is individualised for every person, taking into account all the complexities of cancer treatment, with the therapist adjusting the massage treatments to take into account the unique needs of each client Research shows that Oncology Massage can reduce symptoms such as pain, fatigue and stress/anxiety by up to 50 percent in some people. Oncology Massage is being increasingly embraced in Australia and is now available in some hospitals, with Oncology Massage therapists now employed at the Olivia Newton John Cancer and Wellness Centre at the Austin Hospital in Melbourne. My specialised Relaxation Massage is also based on this style of massage, and combined with mindfulness practice during the massage, leads to a complete mind/body relaxation experience. My other passion is Mindfulness Meditation, the benefits of which can be quite remarkable in reducing stress, pain and anxiety. Mindfulness Meditation instruction is available for groups, workplaces and individuals. I will be commencing a weekly Mindfulness Meditation Group.
