Touch, Caring, and Cancer

Discover how caregiver massage can supplement and support your professional massage when working with cancer patients. Tracy Walton reveals the findings of a study where researchers looked at the ways simple massage techniques could make a positive impact on the lives of people with cancer. She’ll broadcast parts of the video that was used to teach caregivers and will discuss how teaching caregivers to provide massage can ease their fears of doing harm and enhance their relationship while providing potential relief for the patients.
