Spiezia Organics launches cancer therapy training course
Made for Life by UK skincare brand Spiezia Organics has introduced a three-day Cancer Touch Therapy training course.
The first course will be held on June 21-23, with Bath House spa at the Royal Crescent hotel in Bath set to be the first to introduce the method later this month.
The Made for Life initiative by British skincare brand Spiezia Organics works with those diagnosed with or recovering from cancer.
The course, which is accredited by the Complementary Medical Association (CMA), was developed in collaboration with the team at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust.
Amanda Barlow, managing director of Spiezia Organics and founder of the Made for Life Foundation, said: “It is shocking that many spas have turned people away whilst they are going through cancer.
“We believe that all spas should be accessible and this training course enables spas, managers and therapists to confidently open their doors to anyone going through cancer and provide much needed support.”
All proceeds form the course will go to the Made for Life Foundation, which organises days with complementary therapies, nutritional advise, mediation, relaxation techniques, art therapy, makeovers using organic makeup and other services and activities for cancer patients.
Anette Hall, spa manager at Bath House spa, said: “We are delighted to be the first UK hotel to offer our customers’ access to this course.
“Our Spa team thoroughly enjoyed the training and the combination of this with 100% organic skincare to complement the training makes this a unique offering.”
