“There are many challenges in life. One of the biggest challengers a person may face in the modern world is that of a cancer diagnosis and the subsequent treatment to reach desired recovery. Cancer simply is… life changing.”
We have partnered with Made for Life Organics products that are produced here in Cornwall to bring cancer touch therapy™ to the Wellbeing Spa. These specialist treatments bring a sense of wellness to anyone who would benefit from a sequence of gentle and slow massage movements, particularly those going through chemotherapy and radiotherapy but also for anyone with other chronic health conditions.
Touch therapy was originally created after studies showed that sadly 96% of people with cancer were being turned away from having a spa treatment. These treatments have all been designed with the utmost personal safety in mind, so they are perfect for anyone going through a chemotherapy or radiotherapy journey without worry that their spa treatment will impact their medical treatment. They are also ideal for those suffering from mental health, chronic health issues and any condition where a window of time is required to disconnect from the daily stresses of anxiety.
Think of touch therapy as being similar to a period of meditation, where you will reach a deeply relaxed state of being. The slow gentle massage movements used within the treatments work to promote the parasympathetic response. These treatments encourage both the mind and body to enter a ‘state of allowing’ and promote a psychological and physiological response, and will in effect help to boost your immune system.
