Wellness for Cancer spa treatments

For those affected by cancer, spa treatments can help relieve muscle soreness, stimulate the nervous system and improve sleep, plus much more. Our new range of treatments, Be Nurtured, has been created in partnership with Wellness for Cancer, a non-profit educational foundation, and ESPA.

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.

Three of our beauty therapists at The Runnymede on Thames have recently undergone cancer ‘care’ training, while our new range of treatments have been accredited by Wellness for Cancer.

These treatments have been specially created to soothe, relax, nurture and nourish both face and body and provide an enhanced feeling of wellbeing. All treatments use ESPA products too – a brand known for using natural ingredients and avoiding substances such as parabens, silicone and petroleum-based compounds.

Our new range of treatments for those affected by cancer include:

  • A facial that helps to relax, rebalance and deeply nourish the skin, which also includes a skin assessment and personalised home care advice.
  • A bespoke massage that focuses on areas of concern, designed to gently soothe tense muscles, relax the mind, boost the spirit and restore balance.
  • An energy balancer treatment – a massage using gentle body oil to nourish the skin, with crystals used on the relevant chakras to help restore calm to the body.
  • A face, back and scalp massage to address the most common areas of tension, helping to alleviate stress and promote complete relaxation.
  • A therapeutic scalp, neck and shoulder massage to combat stress and tension using rich and nourishing beauty products.

Spa treatments designed especially for those affected by cancer can make a genuine difference to energy levels, mood and the feeling of wellbeing.
