If this is your first appointment with Leah Slater Massage Therapies, there will be a 15 minute initial consultation and assessment (during which you will complete an intake form, and we will discuss your health history and current physical health status). This will incur an one-off $10 charge on top of the massage cost.
- Oncology Massage (1 hr $80*)
Oncology Massage is an ultra-light, soothing form of healing touch which is tailored for individuals diagnosed with cancer or who have a history of cancer. Unlike conventional massage which works on the musculoskeletal system, the slow and gentle touch of oncology massage targets the nervous system, eliciting a deep relaxation response which has been shown to aid pain reduction, relieve depression and anxiety and boost immune function. This is also fantastic for people who suffer from anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, PTSD. Contact me if you have any questions about oncology massage or other applications of this gentle modality.
*Duration of massage will depend on the client’s energy levels. Prices will be adjusted as necessary in consultation with client.
