Lowering Stress and Pain During Cancer
I recently had the honor and pleasure of helping a woman during her cancer treatments and one of the most difficult times of her life. She was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Frequently I have been asked, “Emmy, why did you stop offering full body massages?” So, I thought I’d put some thoughts down to share my response to why I deepened my healing practice from full body massages. First I’d like to share why I began providing massage therapy. You may know that I am an occupational therapist. Occupational therapists assist individuals to be as functionally independent as possible with physical activities, and cognitive and psycho-social abilities in all areas of their lives.
