Cancer Touch Therapy™ (CTT) allows therapists to perform safe and nurturing spa treatments on those being treated for, living with or in remission with cancer, a condition usually contra-indicated. Now available at Ellisons Academy, CTT offers a fantastic opportunity for guests to benefit from a variety of treatments using 100% certified organic products, to disconnect from daily stress and re-connect with nature and stillness.
Training materials will be provided including manuals and hand-outs. Relevant health and safety principles are covered together with contra-indications, aftercare and business advice. Ongoing support is also provided following the training course.
The CTT training course covers wellness treatments which allow the body to access the parasympathetic state. This is a period of time which allows rejuvenation of all levels – mind, body and spirit. You will learn how to perform treatments akin to a period of meditation, which allows a natural boost of immunity.
The course is three days comprising:
- Day one – Theory of cancer and touch therapy practical to arms
- Day two – Theory of Lymphoedema and practical back, head and facial
- Day three – Re-cap and MCQP, practical assessment on case study models
18 – 20 March 2019
