This is the sixth webinar in the More about Cancer Care and Massage Series.  In this session Tracy Walton will discuss the award-winning DVD home instruction program, ?Touch, Caring, and Cancer: Simple Instruction for Family and Friends.? She will share exciting findings from an NIH-sponsored clinical trial that compared professional massage and massage by caregivers using home instruction.


Care partners of people with cancer report feeling helpless, uncertain, and afraid to touch their loved ones. People with cancer tell us they suffer stigma, poor body image, and a yearning for healing touch. By teaching caregivers simple techniques to use at home, massage therapists can help ease this painful experience.


In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How providing instruction in simple massage techniques to caregivers could help with symptom relief for people with cancer
  • Important differences between caregiver massage instruction and professional oncology massage practice
  • The value of massage therapists as touch educators as well as skilled touch providers

You will leave this webinar with an inspired view of massage therapy in cancer care and a new appreciation of the benefits of touch.


Note: This webinar series reinforces and expands upon some important concepts from the popular Massage in Cancer Care series. This series goes beyond general issues to focus on the two most common cancer types?breast and prostate?with vital information for the massage therapist.  Each webinar series stands alone, and the first cancer series is not required for participation in this series.
