It’s that simple. At Shine Therapy, we are dedicated to providing nurturing massage and lymphatic therapy designed specifically for cancer patients, especially those who are uninsured, underinsured or low income.
Free and Low-Cost Massages
Every new patient receives two free massages. Thereafter, we ask a donation according to income. You may receive 17 massages in a 12-month period with your physician’s medical release. For more information, visit the New Clients page.
In Good Hands
Our highly trained therapists are experts in body structure, cancer-related precautions and concerns, and integrated therapeutic techniques. We study your detailed medical history to create a safe and effective treatment plan just for you.
Oncology Massage Therapy: Relaxing professional massage specifically designed to safely nurture the body, mind and spirit of those dealing with cancer.
