Oncology Massage Course – More Details
This Oncology Massage training course taught at Brighton Holistics is comprehensive and practical. Oncology Massage has powerful cleansing, relaxing, pain-relieving and immunological effects. It is a gentle, flowing, rhythmic treatment; from a well-being aspect, it can be applied to a wide range of physical conditions to great effect.
The Oncology Massage techniques facilitate the removal of metabolic wastes, excess water, toxins, bacteria, large protein molecules, and foreign substances from tissue via the initial lymph vessels and the venous capillaries. It also relaxes the sympathetic nervous system, reduces pain, and enhances the activity of the immune system. Therefore, it can be applied as a standalone’ treatment.
It is effective in the treatment of a wide variety of problems including oedema, skin disorders, headache, sinus congestion, sprains and aches, stress, digestive disorders, and before and after surgery, to remove tissue congestion and minimise scar formation. It is particularly useful as part of post-mastectomy therapy, to reduce oedema and fibrosis, and to relieve pain and tension.
Please note that the Manual Lymphatic Drainage training course and Oncology Massage training course are the same courses.
During the course we will cover the following topics:
- What is Oncology Massage,
- How Oncology Massage works,
- Benefits of Oncology Massage,
- Contraindications to Oncology Massage,
- Oncology Massage movements,
- Oncology Massage routine,
- Lymphedema and Oncology Massage,
- Home care for clients, (via our online learners portal),
- Anatomy of the Lymphatic system, (via our online learners portal),
- Pathology of the Lymphatic system, (via our online learners portal),
- Cancer and Neoplasia. (via our online learners portal).
We are often asked why our course is a one day when at several other training schools, the oncology course is completed over two days. The reason for this is that we utilise our online learning portal for you to cover some of the theory at home out of the classroom environment, thus keeping the cost of the course down. This course is fully accredited by the Federation of Holistics Therapist (FHT).
