Cancer Touch Therapy


    Cancer Touch Therapy enables qualified therapists to confidently carry out effective and safe spa treatments on clients living with, undergoing treatment for and recovering from cancer, including post lymph node dissection.

    The treatments are akin to a period of meditation, allowing the body to access the parasympathetic state. This is where the heart rate slows down and the brain is encouraged into Alpha-Theta waves. This prompts the mind and body into a ‘state of allowing’ so that body and mind re-connect. This time allows rejuvenation on all levels – mind, body and spirit – including a natural boost to immunity. We use techniques that are light, non-invasive, gentle and we avoid undue pressure for those suffering with cancer. These truly meditative and calming treatments will help cancer patients to disconnect from daily stress and reconnect body and mind in a tranquil environment.

    During these treatments we only use the hand made 100% organic Made For Life Organics products to nourish the soul and give you reassurance that whichever treatment you choose, it won’t pose a risk to any therapies you’re currently receiving.


    Cancer Touch Therapy can help to soothe the often painful, distressing and uncomfortable side-effects resulting from cancer treatment and bring profound benefits such as:

    • Moisturises the skin, particularly after radiotherapy damage
    • Relieves muscular atrophy (wasting) and soreness due to prolonged bedrest and inactivity
    • Increases range of motion in tight or dysfunctional muscles due to inactivity whilst healing
    • Soothes aches, pains, tension and stiffness in the joints and muscles
    • Decreases oedema associated with inactivity
    • Helps relieve pain and reduces need for pain medication by stimulating endorphin secretion
    • May help to decrease symptoms related to chemo and radiation, such as fatigue, nausea, headaches, diarrhoea or constipation and loss of appetite
    • Increases elasticity to scarred areas and assists with breakdown of scar causing adhesions
    • Increases relaxation, mental clarity, mindfulness and sleep
    • Decreases stress, anxiety and depression and encourages deeper respiration – bringing about deep relaxation by stimulating the body’s own “self-soothing” system (the parasympathetic nervous system)
    • Bring relief from sore hands and feet – also known as “Hand-foot Syndrome” a skin reaction caused by certain chemotherapies.
    • Reduce the pain and stiffness caused by lymphatic cording (also known as Axillary Web Syndrome) resulting from lymph node removal under the arms.
    • Re-establishes a positive body image
