OMA’s Pete Deckinga presented “Easing Chronic Pain with Massage” to the Neuropathy Alliance Texas October 9th, 2017. Thank you, Pete for spreading the word about how massage can help reduce pain and helping to support OMA and Neuropathy Alliance.
OMA massage therapists participated again this year in the Komen Race for the Cure event on Sunday, September 24th from at 6:00 am until 9:30 am. Our Therapists provided complimentary chair massages for survivors during the Race in the Survivor Tent. This year’s race started at south Congress (see below), by the Austin American Statesman offices, just south of the river.
All of our OMA massage therapists are additionally trained in oncology massage. We had so much fun and helped to raise money for breast cancer research!
The use of oncology massage in fighting cancer is featured in the recent publication of CURE magazine. The article written by Maria Prato follows the journey of cancer survivor, Shelly Bain and how tapping into oncology massage helps her. We also hear from OMA’s Geri Ruane on the value of this work for other individuals fighting cancer.
