I trained in many forms of massage, including Sports, visceral, remedial soft tissue therapies, alongside all my past skills to deliver an integrated approach. This is the basis from which I teach. I have been teaching since 1998, but I'm still very much actively learning, I believe in this profession there is a real depth of information that is essential in the delivery of our hands on skills.
I'm passionate about providing the very best quality of training and that goes beyond my teaching. I am involved in many aspects of the profession one which involves the GCMT, I volunteer my time to sit on the board of the General Council for Massage Therapies with the aim to elevate our profession within other communities.
It is important to have both the knowledge and hands on skills as an Oncology Massage Therapist, both will enable you to provide the right level of soft tissue therapy a cancer client needs.
The online portion of this course is very comprehensive and will give you an excellent knowledge base, it is a good place to start if you cannot do the practical days at this time.
Eventually you will need the hands on skills to ensure you are a well rounded therapist that can deliver the skills needed to specialise as a Certified Oncology Massage Therapist.
The course focuses on developing your understanding of common conditions of cancer and how this will influence your massage sessions. It will include how to modify your massage techniques along with learning some new ones specific to a variety of cancer conditions. Included in this field of work is home care advice that will have a positive impact and support your manual therapy. It is the sort of home care that clients will love to do!
The aim of this course is about developing your confidence to go out there and work competently as a COMT. In order to receive full certification you must complete the online course, all three practical days, coursework and online quizzes. The course is approved and accredited by CThA and CHP.
It is an exciting time to be a part of the ever increasing acceptance and growing demand for qualified oncology massage therapists.
I look forward to working with you.

Advanced hands-on skills with a focus on rehabilitation. You will learn how to work through clothing as well as how to modify your techniques when they are in a chair. We'll talk about the "six best Drs" of home care, the best forms of stretching, movement, and complementary therapies.

It is a stand-alone course and will definitely deliver what you need to know and immediately be able to apply the techniques in your massage sessions.
The practical day helps to develop your palpation and hands-on skills. My intention is to teach you a quality technique that your clients will love. Join me for a day that is both enjoyable and interactive, including messing around with 'cornstarch'.
Do you lack the confidence to work in this area? The intention of this course is to develop your understanding of what you are seeing and feeling, it might seem like a complex area in which to work but this course will help to make it simple and accessible.
I believe effective hands-on skills are those that are tissue led, applying sensitive techniques in response to what is felt.
With that in mind, one of the purposes of this course is to demonstrate how you can make changes globally by working with the jaw, neck, and chest. It can help to make your overall outcomes more effective.
