Course Background

  • OML is committed to remaining at the forefront of world’s best practice. To maintain this commitment, we have updated our foundation Oncology Massage courses - OM1 and OM2.
  • Mini Tutorials are designed to bring Oncology Massage Therapists up to date with current Oncology Massage practice, and is being offered nationally with multiple dates to choose from…plenty of opportunities to review our SEVEN techniques with a focus on Leg Technique Two and Bone Marrow Support Sequence.
  • Consistency in Oncology Massage practice is essential for our clients’ wellbeing.  This is why we consider the Mini Tutorial to be an important course in which to enrol every 12-18 months.  What an excellent way to maintain your National Massage Therapist Listing!
