The Amethyst Trust has created a new specialist training course for treating cancer patients in salons and spas.

The Amethyst Trust aims to dispel myths and common misunderstandings, and provide high-quality, factual information to those who wish to provide massage to their clients with cancer.

The organisation has also secured an insurance provision for the course, which enables both individuals plus beauty salons and spas to purchase a bespoke, ‘top-up’ insurance policy that allows therapists to treat clients without a doctor’s note, as long as they have undertaken the Amethyst Training and follow the recommended protocol.

The course brings together John Holman and his Hydrotherm Massage Therapy along with Julie Speed and Debbie Moore, directors of The International Beauty & Holistic Academy.

“There are a plethora of myths surrounding whether massage is safe whilst undergoing cancer treatment, and the reality is that it is perfectly safe if adaptations are made,” said Speed.

“It is really important to the Trust that we are able to help therapists competently treat those clients safely and effectively, whilst also providing appropriate insurance cover.”

The first training course will take place Monday, 23 November at the International Beauty & Holistic Academy in Gloucester, England.
