Many manual therapists have clients with cancer. There are so many ways in which we can support these clients during their treatment, through the years following treatment and the period of remission.

This research based webinar looks at dispelling the myths around touch therapy and cancer. Tracey clarifies the position regarding informed consent, working with oncology clients and insurance requirements. She discusses the adaptations to treatment, facts, challenges, and joys of working with people who are living with cancer. You will learn the importance of therapist self-care, managing emotions, the language of cancer and will explore a practical technique that may be used for anyone who is unable to receive therapeutic touch.
