Jin Shin Jyutsu

The gentle art of Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) can help the body detox from radiation and chemotherapy treatments as well as from anesthesia used during surgery. Sessions before treatments or surgeries can help to prepare the body, and sessions afterward can aid in quicker recovery. JSJ can also help to relieve many of the common side effects of these treatments, including pain, nausea, and fatigue. Because this art does not use any kind of pressure, it does not have the same contraindications or precautions as massage.


This is a gentler massage for those who have been diagnosed with cancer and are undergoing treatment, as well as cancer survivors. Massage in this case is designed for quiet relaxation. I work with you to develop an individualized massage plan based on your diagnosis and treatment history.

What makes Oncology Massage different?

Cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation can have significant impacts on the body which need to be taken into account. Deep pressure or any kind of muscle manipulation is contraindicated, so these massages consist of very light pressure - about as much pressure as you would use to apply lotion, or less - to provide comfort and stress relief. If lymphedema is a risk, or if it is already present, there are additional precautions to consider.
