Cancer is a nasty disease. Just the mere mention of the word can conjure up all kinds of feelings, none of which are positive. Most people think of cancer as a death sentence or battle that cannot be won. At the present time, however, more and more people are learning how to live with cancer and get the most out of their treatments. And many of these treatments involve massage and aromatherapy.

Being a cancer patient is stressful. Being in a family where there is cancer present is equally stressful. Treatments for the disease can be debilitating and humiliating. Yet, it has been proven time and again that people who are positive and comfortable have a better-than-average chance of beating the disease into remission. So, the question is asked: what can be done to make living with cancer more comfortable and positive?

That is where massage and bodywork comes into play. Working with cancer patients, their families and medical teams is a niche market. Some therapists are more than happy to include cancer patients in their regular practices. The fact is, however, that anyone who works with or on a cancer patient is now considered to be part of the medical team. If therapists concern themselves with six or seven patients, they are asked to collaborate with six or seven medical teams.

Massage therapy for cancer patients and their caregivers is one of the most important aspects of a comprehensive treatment program. This course discusses the role of the therapist within the medical team, how to enhance treatments and care through research-based modalities, and the importance of aromatherapy in calming the patient and clearing the area of foul odors.

For the therapist who wants to have a more medically-based practice and wants to make a total difference, this is the field to be in. It can be heart-wrenching, but the good that is being done for a patient far outweighs the sadness that sometimes accompanies the experience.

By the same token, people are beating the disease and living their lives; the probability that your services will be continued a very high. Are you ready to go change the world? Here’s your chance!
