About the Author

Janet Penny RMT has extensive experience working with people living with cancer in both her private practice and at an integrative cancer centre.

Janet has developed a treatment approach that addresses the multi-faceted needs of oncology massage clients. Her approach focuses on pre- and post-surgical treatments, scar tissue, radiation fibrosis, neuropathy and pain within the complex context of the client's emotions that pervade and influence the body. Janet is forever amazed at the resiliency of the human body and all it goes through.
