Course Thai oncology massage

Ten day course Thai Massage and oncology

Roni  Gilboa (Israël) komt zomer 2020 naar Nederland om bij Thai Dee de specialisatie Thaise massage bij mensen met kanker te geven. Een veel minder bekende toepassing van de Thaise massage,  maar minstens net zo boeiend en waardevol.  Je kunt mensen tijdens deze vaak moeilijke fase in hun leven echt tot steun zijn. Helpen deze fase vanuit meer rust en vertrouwen te doorlopen. Hoe mooi  is dat.

Roni beschikt over meer dan 10 jaar praktijkervaring. Daarnaast deelt ze als docent haar kennis aan andere massagetherapeuten. Zowel binnen het holistische zorgcentrum waar ze werkt als daarbuiten. Onder andere bij de bekende Sunshine School in Thailand.

Warm hands on an aching body

This course  you will learn applied Massage Techniques for Oncology, Stress, Trauma, side effects of modern-day illness, Chronic anxiety, Chronic pain and more. 

While the massage techniques are deeply rooted in Traditional Thai Massage and Thai Acupressure, we will also explore the fascinating and intriguing opportunities that present themselves when these traditional techniques interact with other approaches like Shiatsu and Fascia Massage.

What to expect from the course massage and oncology

This course is dedicated to understanding and practicing integrated palliative care for people dealing with cancer through touch therapy.

We will talk honestly and without fear about issues that are characteristic to the oncology environment – What is cancer? what happens to the body when cancer strikes? What are the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects? What are the standard and innovative courses of treatment in conventional medicine? What are their side effects & what are the phases that cancer patients experience? What is palliative care?

Mostly the course is based on hands-on practice of touch therapy techniques that apply to the oncological environment; treating various side effects, trauma, pain management, lack of sleep, neuropathy, etc.
