Oncology Rituals

Oncology specific massage and facials are the adaptation of massage techniques to safely nurture the body of someone affected by cancer: those in active treatment, those in recovery or survivorship, and individuals at the end of life.  Each session is planned around what YOU are experiencing and what YOUR needs are on the day of your massage.*

Oncology Massage

60/90 Minutes | $115/$150

I am specifically trained in oncology massage to provide safe and effective massage for anyone who is newly diagnosed, in treatment, or in remission.  These sessions, which focus on comfort and relaxation, can help get you through the stress of cancer treatment as well as provide relief from the many and varied side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, such as fatigue, nausea, neuropathy, insomnia, muscle aches, and more.

Oncology Support Facial

60 Minutes | $115

In this treatment, the gentlest of plants like Jojoba, Chia Seed, Raw Honey, and Calendula come together to focus on soothing and hydrating the skin, while simultaneously calming the nervous system.  This facial is ideal for those in cancer remission and recovery, those with heightened auto-immune activity, and for those who have a long list of allergens, including nuts while still developing their relationship with plants.

Treatment Enhancements

Pair one or more of the enhancements with your oncology ritual to increase your state of relaxation.  May only booked with a full service ritual.  

The CO2Lift Carboxytherapy Treatment is pure science and magically transformative. It acts as a topical “hyperbaric oxygen chamber” for the skin, delivering a rush of carbon dioxide to the application site.  When the gas is delivered through the gel to the skin, the body responds by rushing oxygen rich blood to the tissue leading to an induction of new collagen, tissue regeneration, and increased oxygenation and microcirculation. CO2Lift is ideal for those with dehydrated, aging, and inflamed skin. It is very calming, skin firming, deeply hydrating, it evens texture, and fantastic for wound healing. Those with rosacea and inflammatory skin conditions will benefit from this treatment.  It is great before an event. Zero downtime.  CO2Lift can be used immediately after any energy, laser, or ablative treatments, chemical peels, injectables, dermaplanning, microneedling, or surgical procedures, including radiotherapy to increase hydration, reduce downtime, and speed uphealing. Results are best if done in a series of 3 treatments, and then maintained with a one to two times a month treatment. $100

Massage Adaptations are Necessary for:
  • Low blood cell counts and blood clots

  • Bone metastases

  • Radiation and surgery

  • Fatigue

*Please note that oncology massage does not try to treat cancer, and unlike many massage modalities is not a series of massage techniques. It is the ability of the therapist to recognize and safely work within clinically established guidelines of each client.  Some of the benefits of oncology massage are: reduced pain and fatigue, decreased anxiety, lessened nausea, improved sleep, decreased sense of isolation, and increased feelings of well being.
