Y Spa Helping Those Going Through Cancer


Y Spa Helping Those Going Through Cancer

Award Winning Y Spa at The Waterfront Hotel, Wyboston Lakes has recently launched a new range of therapy design to help and care for those going through cancer.

These new treatments "Cancer Touch Therapy" have been trained in at Y Spa by Made For Life. 

Emma-Jane North, Spa Director says, "Cancer Touch training has given our Spa therapists confidence in being able to care for those going through cancer, those individuals who need therapy, rest and relaxation more than most are now being included in our spa offering.  The sense of fulfilment that we all get from being able to offer this is immense."

Y Spa offers three therapies, MADE FOR LIFE - HAND ON HEART which is an 80 minute nurturing and calming treatment for the head, face, back and shoulders.  The MADE FOR LIFE - CATCH THE BREATH is a 25 minute gentle treatment for the head, back and shoulders designed to allow you to drift away into a meditative state of relaxation. Lastly the MADE FOR LIFE - SOOTHE AND NURTURE which is a 25 minute relaxing face and scalp massage designed to calm the mind and soothe the soul. 

Amanda Barlow, MD 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 through our work with the Made for Life Foundation (registered charity 1138846) we have for 15 years, consistently provided this using appropriate protocols combined with our 100% organic skincare and wellbeing range of products. This CMA accredited Cancer Touch Therapy training course enables spas, managers' and therapists to confidently open their doors to anyone going through cancer and provide much needed support.''

The treatments have been developed, taking advice from trained oncology massage teachers, advisors within the oncology team at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust and also Macmillan. Marc Innes, MISRM, MCMA is the course lead trainer and gained accreditation for this course from the Complementary Medical Association (CMA).

Emma-Jane concludes " I am personally very proud that we have been able to embrace this new training and I know the team are enjoying giving the treatments and the pleasure it brings."
