Svetlana Sigalov joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Chicago, in 1998, working with patients in the inpatient units. After going back to school and receiving her certification, Sigalov transitioned to a massage therapist role with CTCA® in August 2009.
After working for many years in the nursing field, Sigalov decided to become a massage therapist. “Patients at CTCA come to a massage therapy session to relax and feel comfortable,” says Sigalov. “Some patients also find that massage therapy may help reduce pain, nausea, fatigue, anxiety and depression.”
While providing massage therapy, Sigalov uses modalities such as Swedish massage, craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, reflexology, trigger point release and acupressure.
Sigalov joined CTCA as a certified nursing assistant working with patients in the inpatient units. After completing her massage therapy certification, she became a massage therapist.
Outside of CTCA, Sigalov enjoys working out, going to concerts and shows with friends, and mushroom hunting with her husband.
Patient ratings and comments
Star ratings and comments are only available for medical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists. Gynecologic surgical offerings are not included at this time due to a different survey tool required to evaluate these services. CTCA uses a validated Press Ganey® survey, which captures patient experience feedback for the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
