Client receiving Oncology MassageYou can relax, & I won’t be chatty.

First, you’ll enjoy your massage in a calm atmosphere & without feeling rushed.

My friends say that I’m funny & caring. But when I’m giving a massage, that’s your time. I won’t be talking when you’re trying to relax.

Get relief for your muscle pain.

If there’s a particular area where you feel tight, tense or stressed, we can focus your massage on that. Are you on your feet all day, or do you sit at a computer for work or school? Is there a “spot” where you always seem to feel pain?

Don’t put off feeling better! We can make a customized plan to relieve the tension in your neck, arms, shoulders, or back.

Convenient, quiet office location.

Located in Virginia Beach, VA. My office is on Newtown Road, with easy access from Northampton, Shore Drive, or Town Center. (And it’s away from the I-64 construction zone!)

Can cancer patients get a massage? Yes!

I specialize in supporting clients who are in treatment or who have a history of cancer.

With the right kind of modifications, massage therapy can make a big difference during your treatment & recovery:

  • Help you with your physical or emotional side effects such as depression & anxiety
  • Lessen your muscle & joint pain
  • Assist with cancer-related fatigue

We’ll talk about your treatment and how it’s affected you. Then we’ll modify your massage to ensure your comfort.

I’m a preferred provider with the Society for Oncology Massage and have taken special training from some wonderful experts.  Please feel free to ask any questions you have about oncology massage.

why massage for cancer patients is different

Get your massage, the way you want it.

Need an extra pillow? Want the table warmer turned up, prefer a certain genre of music, looking for help with a specific muscle group? I’ll keep notes about your preferences for your next appointment.

Quiet Strength is just me… a one-person business offering massage therapy in Virginia Beach. So, you’ll know what to expect at every session.

Oh, by the way… your 60-minute massage means just that. You’ll get 60 minutes of actual massage time on my table. None of that “50-minute hour” stuff.

Convenient online scheduling! Reserve your time without playing any phone tag.
