Therapists will have the knowledge, skill and ability to empathise with and understand what their client has been through

Two of the industry's leading specialists in oncology massage and skincare will host a training masterclass in London, from 24 - 26 October.

The Foundation Level in Cancer Care Massage course is being spearheaded by Marc Innes – an ex-NHS paramedic and principal of the School of Natural Therapies – and Christine Clinton – therapist trainer, cancer care specialist and owner of Christine Clinton Wellness for Life!

The duo are both members of the Standards Authority for Touch in Cancer Care (SATCC) and have designed the new course for massage, beauty and spa therapists.

The qualification costs £495 (US$582, €583) each and will teach attendees how to offer a full body treatment to clients living with and beyond cancer – which can be adapted to suit all guests regardless of the location or stage and type of cancer.

Part of the three-day course also involves dispelling myths about providing spa treatments for those with or who’ve had cancer. Innes and Clinton will also share which treatments – such as manicures and pedicures – need to be specially adapted.

“There are some spa treatments that may be contraindicated, due to pressure and heat, but there is so much we can offer instead,” said Innes.

The training recognises both the important role that massage and other holistic treatments can play in recovery from cancer treatments, as well as any associated medical and clinical treatments.

“The research into massage and cancer has been nothing but positive in terms of the range of benefits it provides,” Innes added.

“Therapists who complete our training will have the knowledge, skill and ability to empathise with and understand what their client has been through.”

He told Spa Business that the course is accredited, insurable and ensures that therapists can operate independently of medical and GP permission/letters.

To enrol on the course, participants must have achieved a UK recognised and regulated Diploma at Level three or above, which must include a form of massage, alongside Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology. Examples include ITEC/VTCT, CIBTAC and CIDESCO.
