Gentle and cancer safe
Making a difference
What a year it’s been for our treatment department. Following extensive research, planning and training, we were delighted to be amongst the first spas in the country to be able to offer cancer safe massage. We also worked hard to be able to change the standard policy of “five years clear” adopted by most spas in the UK. We wanted our standard treatment menu to be available much sooner than that.
Massage and facials during chemo, radio and hormone therapies
For those still undergoing medication or treatment our cancer safe treatments have been oncologist approved and are delivered by therapists who have undergone intensive training.
Everyone’s journey through cancer is different so it’s vital to have a thorough understanding of different requirements. Our therapists know the best time to deliver relaxing treatments during the different phases of all of the different therapies. Our new treatments can be adapted for any individual needs, for example, therapists are trained to help adapt positioning perhaps for a medical device or to avoid discomfort for sensitive areas.
The new cancer safe treatment routines are extremely gentle and soothing for tense, tired muscles.
Spa therapies following all-clear
The standard advice is to avoid offering general massage therapies within five years, even following remission/all-clear. We thought this was really hard on many people who could really use some t.l.c. So we’ve worked hard to be able to offer our entire treatment menu immediately after the all-clear has been given.
