Day 2 Practical Oncology Massage
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.
We will further analyse case studies covering conditions such as testicular, kidney, lung, esophageal and brain cancers.
We will establish realistic goals based on a clients stage of health during all stages of cancer.
We will be working with a variety of tools, that include balls, 'the purple gloves' and nets to further help you with understanding the concept of global soft tissue work.
Day 3 Practical Oncology Massage
This day will bring it all together and further develop your hands on skills!
Using everything you've learnt, you will devise a treatment which includes home care suggestions, & rehabilitation principles. Ideally you will deliver a massage treatment in a real clinical setting if the current climate allows external clients.
At the end of the day you will have the opportunity to discuss the client sessions in full, reviewing what worked well and what you might have done differently.
If we are unable to run a live clinic, further case studies and advanced techniques will be covered.
The aim of this course is about developing your confidence to go out there and work competently as a COMT.
