Spa treatments for those undergoing treatment for cancer, living with cancer or with a history of cancer can make a tremendous difference to wellbeing. Specialised skills are employed in spa treatments for those affected by cancer, including subtle energy techniques, mindful touch, reflexology, acupressure and comfort massage.
The benefits for the recipients of carefully designed treatments include the relief of muscle soreness, stimulation of the nervous system and skin hydration. Treatments also encourage deeper breathing and help improve sleep. Importantly, recipients of such treatments also say how the experience provides them with meaningful social interaction during a difficult time, improves their body image, and gives a sense of participation in the healing process.
