    Oncology massage is highly individualized. Patti Corscaden, LMT, has special training in oncology massage, a unique combination of gentle hands-on therapies, which can enhance healing while it promotes relaxation and well-being at all stages of the cancer journey. As Patti explains: “I look at the client as a whole person so that I can fully understand how I can support that person’s health and healing at every stage of the cancer journey. ”Patti learns all she can about a client’s medical history, with detailed questions about diagnosis, medications, surgeries, and treatments. She often speaks with her clients’ doctors. Every session with a client includes time for conversation, so she can assess what the client needs that day and how she can provide the most help. During the massage, she receives further guidance from the body itself. Cancer massage supports and enhances conventional treatments, and provides a calming oasis of peace and wholeness that stay with a client long after a session has ended.

    Therapeutic Massage has been found helpful for patients with Lyme disease and Tickborne Illnesses. As a former Lyme Disease patient, Patti understands the complexities of the disease and co-infections. For more information, please visit Midcoast Lyme Disease Support and Education website at:
