Oncology Massage Program

CATA has developed a unique and groundbreaking program to prepare Licensed Massage Therapists to work in the field of oncology massage.

“This class was exactly what I had been looking for and I’m honored to have participated in it. It gave me a glimpse of the exciting future down the road for Oncology Massage. The course is definitely a catalyst for many more wonderful exciting opportunities for LMTs.”

“Felicia & Danny make a powerhouse of a team! They were attentive to our questions and their personal professional experiences added to the material.”

You will benefit from a truly comprehensive curriculum and learn from expert faculty–LMTs, nurse practitioners, a social worker and nutritionist–associated with the most prestigious cancer care centers in NYC: Sloan Kettering, NYU and Mount Sinai.

We offer exciting externship opportunities in partnership with Bellevue Hospital, as well as the opportunity for internship in CATA’s Oncology Massage Studio.

All classes are offered on weekends, and a monthly payment plan is available. For more information, contact vanessa@catanyc.com
