Jody McFarland RN, LMT
Massage Therapist and Reiki Practitioner
Hello! I’m Jody.
Thank you for your interest in oncology massage therapy. It is my honor to provide safe and effective massage for any person at any stage of their cancer journey. I am a licensed Massage Therapist, Reiki Practitioner and RN specializing in the care of those affected by cancer treatment. I offer nurturing and therapeutic heart-centered massage and am called to help those in major life transitions and challenges.
My advanced massage training includes “Oncology Massage Therapy: Caring for Clients with Cancer” by Tracy Walton and Associates. In addition, I am a member of Oncology Massage Alliance which is a nonprofit foundation dedicated to providing complimentary hand and foot massages to clients during their cancer infusion treatments.
It is my intention to provide mindful and soothing touch, combining compassion with specialized technique leaving you feeling fully rested and supported. It is when our bodies are in a state of rest that they can maximize their own natural healing abilities. Skilled in Reiki energy healing as well, we may incorporate this profoundly relaxing and healing technique if desired into your personalized sessions. The benefits of our holistic bodywork will last well-beyond each session.
When not practicing massage and nursing, I can be found on the beautiful trails of Austin either hiking or biking.
