Wellness for Cancer

"Extremely useful course. I feel I have gained so much knowledge and now have more confidence."

Neal’s Yard Remedies is delighted to be offering a CPD course to increase your level of comfort and confidence in delivering safe and nurturing services to clients who have experienced cancer.

Wellness for Cancer is the first global organization to establish standardized, objective, cancer-focused training and business criteria for the massage and wellness industry.  Wellness for Cancer has specifically trained and certified several leading UK and US spas to provide services for clients who have experienced or are currently living with cancer.

We have been looking for specialist training in this area for some time and are delighted to be able to offer you the expertise needed to deliver rejuvenating experiences to those who have been affected by cancer. This course is for practicing massage therapists and bodyworkers to help you feel confident in working with this specialised client group.

What is Wellness for Cancer?

Wellness for Cancer is a non-profit, training and certification platform “Wellness for Cancer” (http://www.wellnessforcancer.com/).

The organization aims to educate body-work practitioners and massage therapists on how to treat clients who are experiencing cancer. The curriculum of the program is not only based on many people's experiences with cancer but also on fielding the many questions from within the industry on how to work with clients who suffer or have suffered from cancer.

What will you learn?

You will learn how to carry out treatments with varying levels of touch and pressure, entirely tailored to the individual’s health, needs and preference, allowing them the opportunity to safely enjoy the soothing and restful benefits of massage.

In understanding the complex array of stressors that cancer can trigger, you will learn how to adapt your range of treatments to suit all cancer sufferers.

How will your practice benefit?

It’s a logical thought that the large number of people undergoing treatment for cancer or post-treatment would benefit from having a relaxing massage and yet very few therapists in the UK have the training requirements in place to perform such treatments.

Following the course your clients will be able to enjoy the benefits of massage and skin-care treatments, safe in the knowledge you understand their special needs.

What does the course entail?

10-15 hours of online modules to be completed before the workshop

A two day workshop – with massage practical and lectures

A 4-5 hour video follow-up that can be referred to any time to refresh your memory

How will your clients benefit?

Your clients want to be able to escape cancer during their time with you, they don’t want to go to massage treatment and be reminded of their journey, and this is what Wellness for Cancer can enable. You will be able to offer a select treatment menu to cancer sufferers with the right training, attitude and approach. For example, you will be taught how to respect the lymphatic system should a client have undergone node removal as part of their cancer treatment.

Most important of all your clients can be reassured that all your treatments are safe and relaxing for them at this stressful time in their lives.
