Massage Therapist

Oncology massage is a light-touch massage shown to improve the quality of life for people with a history or diagnosis of cancer. This massage reduces the side effects of conventional cancer treatments including pain, fatigue, anxiety, nausea and depression.

Oncology massage therapists who perform this work are formally trained, and hold a recognised qualification from Oncology Massage Training.

Kaori began working in the field of optometry in Japan and Australia before completing study to become a registered Remedial Massage Therapist. Kaori has since furthered her study in the fields of Oncology Massage and Caraniosacral Therapy. She has recently been accredited as a Lymphoedema practitioner.

Anne Peters (Taringa, QLD)
Exercise Physiologist

Exercise Oncology is a branch of exercise-therapy that is now considered a standard part of best practice cancer care. The Clinical Oncology Society of Australia promote exercise therapy for all people, of any age, with any stage of cancer; noting it to significantly help  people to recover and thrive from pre-treatment to well into survivorship.

Exercise oncology programs are designed to improve the effectiveness of cancer treatments including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery, hormonal therapy, immunotherapy and targeted therapy. By strengthening your heart, lungs, bones and muscles your body is better able to direct medications to tumour areas; reducing damage to your organs and reducing the severity of treatment side effects such as fatigue, pain, weight-changes, swelling, depression and reduced mobility. The importance of exercise therapy doesn’t end when your cancer treatment concludes; there are a number of longer term treatment side effects (like damage to the heart and skeletal muscles) that only exercise therapy can minimise.
