MFPLWC Workshop

"Massage for People Living with Cancer©" (MFPLWC) is a three-day, hands-on workshop developed by Gayle MacDonald. During this workshop you will learn how to adjust your massage techniques so they are supportive of clients living with cancer who may also be at risk for lymphedema.

The curriculum includes: opening the heart to those living with cancer, an overview on metastasis, side effects of chemotherapy, surgery, radiation and the risk for lymphedema, as well as how to adjust massage sessions to support the cancer client. There is significant practice time in class, which culminates in providing a comfort oriented session with a cancer client.
