I highly recommend the in-person Oncology Massage course offered by Seminars for Health (SFH) and taught by Janet Penny. Janet’s expertise and passion for the subject were evident throughout the course. She created a supportive learning environment, where questions were encouraged and individual perspectives valued. The comprehensive content covered physiological and psychological aspects of cancer, treatment side effects, contraindications, and appropriate massage techniques. Janet skillfully guided us through hands-on demonstrations, providing practical knowledge and boosting our confidence. The course materials provided by SFH were excellent and served as valuable resources. This course has greatly impacted my practice, equipping me to make a positive difference in the lives of oncology patients. If you’re a massage therapist looking to specialize in oncology massage, don’t miss this exceptional opportunity with Janet Penny and Seminars for Health.
