Lymphedema Management
Oncology Massage

Lymphedema is a chronic, but manageable condition involving protein-rich fluid accumulation in the tissues.  Lymphedema often develops as a result of treatment for cancer, Chronic Venous Insufficiency, obesity, trauma, or from an inborn genetic predisposition.  


Oncology Massage can be SAFE and THERAPEUTIC during and after cancer treatment.  Oncology Massage is the adaptation of massage techniques to safely nurture the body of anyone affected by cancer and its treatments.  MANY cancer treatments require subsequent LIFETIME massage modifications for the long-term safety of the oncology patient.  

Many patients undergoing a functional medicine approach to cancer treatment are advised by their providers to seek out properly trained oncology massage and manual lymphatic drainage sessions as part of their overall wellness strategy.

If  you are currently in, or have had a history of cancer treatment, seek a qualified oncology massage-trained therapist.
