Have you ever been asked if you would perform Soft Tissue therapy on a cancer patient? This can be a question that is often scary and difficult to answer. There is also sometimes a misconception that Oncology massage is purely an intellectual exercise - this often does not give a complete picture of what skills it requires. Susan's course explores Soft Tissue therapy in Oncology massage and cancer care, based on experience and scientific research.

Susan’s first love is dance, sport, anything to do with the joy of movement. She trained as a nurse in Canada but soon left the profession when she came to the UK as she wanted a deeper connection with her clients. 

For many years she worked in both health and fitness, teaching 20+ classes a week and running GP referral schemes. She wanted to make better use of all her knowledge which led her to retrain as a Sports Massage and Remedial Soft Tissue Therapist. 

Currently she is the director of NLSSM and specialises in teaching Oncology Massage. She is the author of Sports Massage: Hands on Guide for Therapists and is the Sports Massage feature writer for Massage World. She volunteers her time as a board member of GCMT.
