The 316marketplace.com team recently met up with the owner of Little Flower Healing Massage located in the Old Mill district of Omaha, NE. Cathy Thayer is a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) and is certified in Oncology Massage. She knows cancer. She understands its causes, cures and treatments are as varied as the people it affects. Thayer is determined to help those dealing with the physical and emotional symptoms of cancer. Thayer is just one of a handful of practitioners in the Midwest seeking a Lymphedema Therapist Certification. Thayer’s newest certification will expand her ability to deliver effective and compassionate care to those that have been impacted by cancer. Thayer, as part of her newest certification, is giving away (15) sixty minute massages away for those that are cancer survivors or currently fighting the battle. Thayer wants to complete this special project in the month of February! She hopes to expand on programs like this in the future.
“Not too many people know that massage therapy can play a vital role in the treatment of cancer.”
Healing massage cannot cure cancer, but it can offer much-needed relief, enhance the quality of life and make great contributions to the healing process. Thayer, a devout Christian, believes, “Healing is always possible, even when a cure is not.”
Thayer discussed, to the 316marketplace.com team, the advances of the acceptance of massage therapy as a tool to help those who are dealing with cancer emotionally and physically. Research has also played a huge role in showing the benefits of massage therapy. The benefits of healing massage therapy are not limited to but include: reduce stress, minimize the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, enhance circulation and oxygen, provide comfort, boost the immune system, remove toxins from the body, decrease fatigue, increase body awareness, provide a feeling of peace and well-being, and help reconnect the body, mind and spirit. For many cancer patients, touch is associated with pain and discomfort. Massage can provide a nurturing, calming, soothing and compassionate experience for the client. Thayer wants her guests to know that very special care will be taken on each and every visit. Little Flower Healing massage is committed to providing the very best possible treatment. Massage therapists, like Thayer, are a compliment to your treatment team. A medical history is taken for each client and they will work closely with your physician. Your health and well-being are of the utmost importance to Cathy and the team at Little Flower.
“I love everyone who walks through my door. God has put this person in my path for a reason and I want to show them Christ’s love.”
Thayer encourages anyone stricken by cancer to sign up for one of the free 60 minute oncology massage sessions. She is reserving 8 sessions to those specifically impacted by breast cancer. Contact Cathy Thayer at Little Flower Healing Massage at 402-212-9453 to schedule your appointment.
