One Spa in Edinburgh has become one of the UK’s first hotel spas to introduce a specialist treatment for guests living with, or recovering from, cancer.

The Cancer Touch Therapy treatment – delivered in partnership with skincare brand Made for Life Organics – involves a sequence of slow, rhythmic Tui Na Chinese massage techniques and has been designed to allow guests to drift away into a meditative state of relaxation.

The 80-minute treatment became available on 1 October at the spa, located at the luxury Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa in the Scottish capital.

Working Made for Life Foundation – a charity set up by Made For Life founder Amanda Barlow – therapists at One Spa have received specialist training to carry out the treatment.

"I believe that all spas should open their doors and embrace the opportunity to provide support to people going through cancer,” said Amanda Barlow, managing director of Made for Life Organics.

“Feedback from guests who have been unable to have spa treatments in the past and the therapists who are now able to welcome them in has been absolutely heart-warming."

One Spa manager Jo Syme added: “We’re so pleased to be able to offer a safe and accessible treatment for those who have been diagnosed with cancer.

“The therapy offers a much-needed respite from everyday life and a welcome addition to our offering.”
