Working daily with the unique experiences that Oncology Massage and Decongestive Lymphatic

knowledge base from upon which to draw. She has developed advanced rehabilitative techniques
based on this experience and, working holistically, uses them for the management of lymphoedema
and lipoedema, chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy, scar mobilisation, range of
movement difficulties and other issues that can arise from the treatment of cancer. Pre-existing
issues are also considered when deciding upon an appropriate course of massage therapy.
Tania provides education around self-care to empower and facilitate well-being, an important factor
in the therapeutic treatment process. To this end, she has co-created the LymphDIY resources:
Lymphatic Drainage self help books and DVDs for those who have had lymph nodes removed or radiated.
Whilst she focuses on those who are living with the effects from treatment for cancer, Tania also
offers her massage skills and services to family members and friends, as well as the Sunshine Coast
