Wellness Spa at Home
Because we are sure that you will enjoy your experience with us, we have provided you with the opportunity to purchase many of the products used in our treatments, as well as other Wellness Spa and Boutique merchandise.
Gratuities are not included in the service fee and may be given at your discretion.
Please advise our team if you have any allergies, if you are pregnant, recovering from a recent surgery, taking medical treatments, or have any existing medical concerns. If you have a history or are currently in treatment for any type of cancer, please make our team aware of this in advance. Wellness Spa therapy treatments are highly recommended and encouraged for our clients at any stage of cancer. However, we will need a completed Physician's Permission Form for Oncology Massage allowing us to perform spa therapies on you. We will gladly discuss your goals, preferences, and answer any questions.
Give your therapist feedback as to your comfort. We are here to make this the most relaxing and beneficial treatment for you, so tell us what your needs are. If you would rather enjoy the treatment in silence, that is your choice, as well.
Oncology Massage is a form of bodywork that supports a person who has lived with or is undergoing therapies; the massage is designed to enhance the healing process throughout the various stages of cancer and recovery.
Oncology Massage respects the body's limits and the compromised conditions resulting from cancer and its treatments. Oncology Massage promotes and honors the healing process while strictly avoiding any re-traumatizing of the body.
The benefits of oncology massage echo the benefits of massage, but oncology massage offers the clear opportunity to honor the self during a challenging time. Through accepting self value, the person can become more available to other people and to the experience of living.
Oncology Massage can relieve a wide scope of symptoms including: aches and pains, fatigue, stress and exhaustion, scarring, nausea, diarrhea, and constipation, insomnia and lack of appetite, various other side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
Treatments have been reported to: relieve depression, reduce stress, strengthen compromised body organs and systems, enhance feelings of well being, support and boost the immune system.
Align Total Wellness Oncology Massage Therapies:
During the sessions, clients are positioned carefully to accommodate any surgical or radiation sites or devices such as ports for chemotherapy infusions. Each session is individually customized to specific needs on that day and at that moment, respecting specific healing processes and individuality.
In addition to on-site treatments, clients are educated in self-care techniques to be performed at home which are designed to enhance strength, flexibility, movement and postural awareness.
Depending on condition, needs, and preferences the frequency of Oncology Massage sessions may vary from monthly to one or more times per week.
