• What is therapeutic massage?

    An essential component of a modern, comprehensive medical treatment plan, therapeutic massage offers life-changing pain relief and healing for patients who are recovering from breast cancer, mastectomy, liposuction, joint replacement, surgery, and other painful musculoskeletal injuries, diseases and conditions. Through therapeutic massage, we can work to relieve your pain, improve your range of motion and help you overcome the physical and mental obstacles to feeling like yourself again.

    The Spurgeon Method™

    Developed by our founder, Sally Spurgeon, The Spurgeon Method™ is utilized in each of our breast sessions. The technique is endorsed by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. It is practiced by select therapists in the USA and also in the UK. Bringing her professional perspective as a massage therapist to her own personal battle with breast cancer, Sally was inspired to create this groundbreaking hands-on approach to recovery that combines massage, bodywork and lymphatic drainage techniques to aid in healing — both physically and mentally.

    Healthy Breast (Breast Massage)

    Breast Massage is vital to the health and well-being of breast tissue.
