Safely treat people diagnosed with cancer by taking this 1 day Course!

Join us for Fundamentals of Oncology Massage Level 1.  This course is designed to take the fear and misunderstanding out of providing massage to individuals who are living with cancer or have been through cancer treatments.

After this course, you will have:

    • Knowledge of biomedical cancer treatments and the adaptations to pressure, site, duration, and position necessary to offer safe massage.
    • Enhanced critical thinking skills necessary to work with a client with cancer
    • A checklist of how to recognize lymphedema and when to refer out
    • Introductory knowledge of integrative cancer care.

Increasing rates of cancer and survivorship require knowledgeable and skilled health care practitioners who can safely work with people with cancer.  Fundamentals of Oncology Massage Level 1 will give you the foundation to confidently support oncology patients and cancer survivors.

This course is a prerequisite to the 3-day Oncology of Soft Tissue Manipulation Level 2 course.  Once both levels and the exam have been completed you will be an  SFH Oncology Certified therapist.

What will you accomplish and acquire from taking this course?

You will become confident in knowing more about what precautions and adaptations are required to carry out a safe treatment and when to refer out cancer patients.

Learn the enhanced knowledge of common oncology terminology, oncology treatment protocols, and side effects to enable effective communication with clients and other health care professionals.
