Therapists at the Bannatyne Spa in Carlisle have received specialist training which enables spa therapists to offer a special programme of treatments for clients who are in remission from cancer or are undergoing cancer treatment.
Bannatyne’s most skilled therapists received training from tpot (The Power of Touch), a cancer-focused training organisation for the spa and wellbeing industry, to give them an insight into what clients with the illness may be going through, both physically and emotionally.
Over recent years, Bannatyne’s Spas have seen a rise in clients recovering from cancer, and it is hoped that the new services will offer an invaluable resource for many people.
Karen Wilkinson, Group Spa Director, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer selected treatments for our clients who are living with cancer, that are both safe and relaxing.
“The training that our therapists received gave them a greater insight into the mind and physical condition of clients living with cancer, and has allow them to adapt their services accordingly.
“We already support Look Good Feel Better, a charity that helps female cancer sufferers to look and feel their best, but this training will allow us to take our spas to the next level and help clients approach recovery from a more holistic angle.”
