IT’S ALL ABOUT COMPASSION

Therapeutic touch can alleviate discomfort, restore the  mind, body and spirit and provide patients with a few moments of respite.  At the Mount Sinai Roosevelt Cancer Center’s Infusion Suite, you will find Monica, a licensed massage therapist, circling around on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, offering hand/foot massages to oncology patients. 

With 10+ years experience as a massage therapist, Monica has enjoyed helping clients to relax, release tension, frustration, sadness, anger, or grief while taking in peace and tranquility.   Her studies and certifications include The Swedish Institute for Massage Therapy, where she concentrated on therapeutic medical massage, as well as additional specialized studies and certification in: advanced Oncology Massage, Prenatal Massage, Ericksonian Hypnosis, Parent-Infant Massage, Massage for the Child Bearing Cycle, Reflexology, and Reiki. 

In the infusion suit, you can often find Monica, combining‘ Ericksonian Hypnosis’  techniques with massage, creating visualizations to transport the patient’s minds to places of love, tranquility, and joy. She shows patients how amazing the power of the mind really is, and that visualization is a tool they can bring home with them. 

  1. “I believe massage is all about compassion for each other. My mission is to be a compassionate companion on patients journeys through health and illness.”
