Jackie Dawson, from Massage on Main, to speak at Cancer Support Group on May 2

The Cancer Association of Darke County will hold their monthly support group meeting on May 2 at 7 p.m. at Wayne HealthCare on the third floor in the Conference Room.

Mrs. Dawson will be sharing information about the benefits of massage and other types of therapy for cancer patients and those with different health issues. Jackie is a graduate of SHI Integrative Medical Massage School in Lebanon, Ohio. She completed 750 hours of study and passed the Ohio State Medical Board in January of 2005, completing in-service at Heartland here in Greenville. She holds certificates in additional modalities, including Craniosacral and Alexander Technique and is a member of the AMTA. Her forte lies in caring communication with her patients.

A life-long resident of Greenville, her career was founded on four and a half years at the Brethren Home, working in the extended care facility. After graduation from SHI, she oversees the current clinic at the corner of Martin and Ohio Streets, seeing it grow from two licensed therapists to five and a reflexologist.

She has spoken to various churches and local groups such as A.I.M., Alzheimer’s Association and groups for the legally blind. She is a believer in educating the public to the benefits of massage therapy and schools with graduates interested in massage therapy have been included in her venue along with local health fairs.

The clinic offers a full range of services including but not limited to: Swedish, Trigger Point, Myofascial, Craniosacral, Hot Stone, Touch Pro, Hydrotherapy, Raindrop, Sports Massage, Reflexology and Energy work. “We are a holistic facility and believe mind, body and spirit need to be treated as a whole.”

Cancer survivors, patients, families and those concerned about cancer patients are invited to attend.
