Oncology Massage Healing Summit  | Bloomington / Minneapolis, MN

Friday, April 30, 2010 & Saturday, May 1, 2010  | Northwestern Health Sciences University

Tina Allen | World Masage ConferenceJoin Liddle Kidz Founder, Tina Allen, at the 2010 Oncology Healing Massage Summit for a special presentation on Massage for Children with Cancer.

To a child who has been diagnosed with Cancer, their symptoms are often accompanied by pain, anxiety, loneliness and fear, so, it makes sense that  many practitioners, and families, are turning to the nurturing touch of massage therapy to provide much needed care and comfort.   During this session participants will review the most common types of childhood Cancers and methods used to treat children with Cancer.   Research benefits of using massage therapy for pediatric clients will be discussed.  Additionally, participants will learn, and practice, a hands-on protocol to be used with pediatric oncology clients.

What is the Oncology Massage Healing Summit & Society for Oncology Massage?

The Society for Oncology Massage (S4OM) was conceived at the first national oncology massage  convention, the Oncology Massage Healing Summit, held in the spring of  2007.  Over 150 therapists and 20 faculty members attended two days packed with lectures, workshops, and fellowship.  One participant summed up the weekend by saying, " I find I am a blood member of a tribe I didn't know existed."

Tina Allen is a 2009 Massage Therapy Hall of Fame Inductee
