Since 2011, I have been a proud member of The Society for Oncology Massage; we are a group of professionals across the health care spectrum dedicated to providing safe massage to people living with cancer and cancer survivors. This mission is supporting by several massage schools, learning hospitals and people who are leaders in the field of oncology massage. I have held massage out-reaches at the Dignity-Dominican Health Katz Cancer Resource Center and presented a Fireside Chat on the topic of Chemotherapy Induced Neuropathy Relief.
The Society for Oncology Massage (S4OM) exists to support and educate massage therapists, consumers and health professionals about the value, specific considerations and applications of massage for oncology patients and survivors.
When it comes to oncology massage, we answer the questions “What is it?” “Why is it?” and “Where is it?”
The S4OM mission is to support the safe delivery of massage to people who have been diagnosed with cancer, to promote an oncology massage education standard and to collaborate in research.
We exist to ease the journey through cancer.
