Simply Massage is so excited to be launching this new service for our Fort Lauderdale community. In mid-October I will be traveling to Atlanta to train with Tracy Walton’s team to receive my certification in Oncology Massage.
Why the new venture? At least 80% of my clients are currently undergoing cancer treatment or are cancer survivors. All of them have found me organically. When I was presented with the opportunity to learn how to better care for this population, I couldn’t pass it up. As many of you know, I have a personal relationship with cancer. My husband underwent a liver transplant in 2016 for liver cancer. The journey of his transplant and recovery has spanned over ten years and I have been by his side as his caregiver every step of the way.
“So Erin, what will you learn?” The course provides training about metastasis and easing concerns of massage spreading cancer. It covers side effects of cancer treatments including chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation. It includes hands-on training and modifications in pressure and technique for cancer patients. It’s a lot of information and I’m ready to be the sponge and soak it ALL up!
You will be able to book oncology services with me beginning in October 2020. I look forward to bringing comfort and relief to our community of cancer warriors.
Appointments available beginning March 26, 2020
Currently available on a case-by-case basis. Expanded services available March 26, 2020
Massage during the final stages of life can provide comfort and ease anxiety, pain, and depression. Please contact our office to discuss the personal details of your loved one’s care.
You will not regret taking the time for a Self Care Day and put it in the hands of Erin.
There are many times Erin makes me feel human again and I don’t know what I’d do without her.
