Cancer Wellness Support
Cancer care is changing! A wider focus is not purely about disease eradication or survival: it's about quality of life too.
Below are the treatments I can offer to anyone on their wellness journey, especially supportive for those in treatment now or in the past for cancer, chronic illness, fatigue, or other painful condition, providing both physical and emotional support whenever you need it.
A wonderfully relaxing spa-style deep relaxation experience for anyone on their cancer journey, whether in treatment now, recovering from surgery or living the after-effects of a cancer diagnosis
Hydrotherm® "Tranquil Sea" Cancer Support Massage
A safe, effective, nurturing massage for anyone who is currently receiving treatment for cancer, or has done so in the past.
Using the Hydrotherm* 3 dimensional massage system, the client lies upon cushions of warm water to receive their massage
"Spa-Ritual Mind-Body Connect"
This is a combination relaxational experience, fusing elements of "Tranquil Sea" Hydrotherm massage with the organic facial of Cancer Touch Therapy and is tailored uniquely to you.
Additional Services and Emotional Support
As you recover from your surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments, you will inevitably experience many changes as you recover not only from the physical after-effects of your treatments, but also the mental and emotional aspects of your experience.
Cancer survivors want to live well, and many of them are leading the way in embracing complementary and alternative medicine.
When I first trained in Massage Therapy in 2008 I was taught that cancer was totally contra-indicated for massage i.e. a big No-No. We had to get a GP's permission first, and on the few occasions I needed to request permission, I never got an answer. What to do? You may also recall that as recently as 2018, the holiday company Center Parcs hit the headlines in the UK when they turned away a visitor from a spa treatment because she had cancer.
It's heartening to know that attitudes are changing. Leaders in cancer care are emerging and helping raise awareness of this outdated plight, with expert therapist training for the spa and holistic health industry now coming to the fore.
I've been trained by the Amethyst Trust endorsed by Penny Brohn Cancer Care, and the Made for Life Foundation in Cornwall, to ensure that I am always able to offer a caring, supportive treatment to everyone, wherever they are on their health and wellbeing journey.
If you are a fellow massage or beauty therapist who is interested in finding out more about therapeutic touch therapies and spa-ritual style treatments specifically tailored to the needs of those on the cancer wellness journey, please do reach out to me and I'm more than happy to have a chat with you to share my experience and recommendations of the training I've received with Made For Life Foundation in Cornwall.
