Spa Voyage, a UK-based distributor of natural beauty products, has partnered with cancer charity The Amethyst Trust to launch the Specialist Cancer Massage Course.

Set up in 2010, The Amethyst Trust is a registered charity that aims to change the perception of cancer in the spa industry, particularly in relation to massage through education. Its ultimate goal is to ensure that massage treatments can be carried out on cancer patients.

Designed for qualified massage professionals the one-day course provides the theory, tools and techniques required for therapists to safely perform massages on clients who have been affected by cancer.

It aims to dispel the myths surrounding massage and cancer, and will cover a host of topics including: the benefits of massage therapy for cancer patients; extending consultation skills to ensure safe treatment planning; considerations and adaptations of traditional massage.; practical massage applications; practical massage applications; practical 'Comforting Touch Massage Ritual' - an approved massage protocol by Spa Voyage; client care and communications, commercialism and professionalism; reflective practice; insurance requirements and medical terminology.

Additionally, the course has been accredited by the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) and approved by industry standards agency Habia, while both Micheal Connors, director of Services, and Dr Catherina Zollman, oncologist and clinical lead at Penny Brohn UK, have endorsed the training.

The Specialist Cancer Massage Course costs £190 for an individual therapist, £135 pp for two - six therapists from the same business, £119 pp for seven - 10 therapists from the same business, £110 pp for 10+ therapist from the same business.
