WELCOME to PEREGRINE INSTITUTE of ONCOLOGY MASSAGE TRAINING
Santa Fe, New Mexico
Certification in Oncology Massage
If you are interested in making a difference in the lives of people living with cancer, we invite you to learn more about our programs.
Not long ago, most massage therapists thought it was contraindicated to work with cancer patients. We now know that is unfounded. In fact, massage can be very beneficial in many cases, and more and more oncologists are recommending massage therapy as an adjunctive intervention. But cancer is a complex disease, and massage therapists who wish to work safely and effectively with people living with cancer need specific training. In response to that need, we have designed our Oncology Massage Certification programs led by pioneers in the field, Sandy Canzone, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, and Gayle MacDonald, author of Medicine Hands: Massage Therapy for People with Cancer, and Massage for the Hospital Patient and Medically Frail Client.
