“Compassionate and healing”
PhD, BCTMB, CMLDT, CHTP*
Lucy founded Oncology Massage in the Carolinas after seeing a need to match up oncology massage therapists with people with a history of cancer. While training people in massage, she has seen a passion in the therapists to be able to provide a safe, effective massage for cancer patients and survivors, but no good way to attract that clientele. While working in the Cancer Center, she sees people who want a safe massage, but do not want it in the same place they are being treated, and not knowing where to find a properly trained therapist. She sees this site as a way to connect the two. She has been a licensed massage therapist since 2005, and trained in oncology massage since 2008. A member of the Society for Oncology Massage since 2009, she brought massage to the Cancer Center at St. Francis in 2012 with the guidance of Greet the Day. She taught for Greet the Day/Institute for Integrative Oncology from 2015-17. She also continues to work directly with cancer patients at Bon Secours St. Francis Cancer Center. In addition to training in oncology massage, she has advanced education in working on scar tissue on post mastectomy patients, manual lymph drainage (from Klose), and 5 years’ experience working with Interim Hospice providing comfort massage to patients at home.
