Kerry, aged 50, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000. By 2010, Kerry had received multiple cancer treatments, including a lumpectomy, FEC chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, as well as undergoing a mastectomy. In 2013, though, Kerry was also diagnosed with secondary metastatic cancer. Kerry then underwent a oophorectomy a year later. Her most recent check-up before meeting with therapist Dawn revealed that her illness was stable, but the stress of recent years had taken its toll on her physical and emotional wellbeing.
Kerry wanted to have a soothing, relaxing specialist oncology massage to relieve some of her stress, and to help with her problems sleeping. Kerry explained to Dawn that she had never been offered complimentary therapies whilst she was going through her cancer treatments, and after seeing the benefits of adapted cancer massage treatments, wished she had been introduced to them much sooner.
She also told Dawn that she felt much more at ease because of her specific cancer massage training. Jennifer Young’s postgraduate oncology course training is designed specifically to provide safe, nourishing treatments for those affected by cancer. We don’t compromise on quality of care; all our therapists are professional, understanding, and want to give clients the opportunity to enjoy a ‘normal’ spa treatment without judgement or fear.
Kerry was delighted that she could enjoy a massage where she felt safe and cared for at the gentle hands of therapist Dawn..
