We all know someone who has been touched by cancer, but for many diagnosed with the disease, that is where the human touch stops. Oncology massage brings us gentle human touch when we are feeling our most vulnerable, safely creating a longed-for sense of peace, wholeness and hope.
In this must-read book for any practitioner, carer or patient, Eleanor Oyston shares her story of bringing oncology massage to Australia.
After many years as a scientist, Eleanor went from diagnosing cancer in a lab to massaging clients with a variety of medical conditions. Very quickly, she witnessed the amazing benefits and knew she wanted to spread the word. This is Eleanor’s story of determination, passion, commitment and vision to give others the gift of compassionate, mindful touch.
