Course Summary

Jennifer Young’s cancer awareness diploma is an awareness training designed to give spa therapists, beauty practitioners and healthcare workers the background knowledge around spa and beauty treatments for cancer patients.

We know, through evidence-based research, that when someone is going through cancer treatment, living with cancer or recovering from it, touch treatments can have a powerful physical, mental and emotional impact on health and wellbeing. Benefits can range from reduced anxiety, reduced pain and reduced nausea to reduced depression and increased dopamine levels, as well as practical improvements to some of the physical side effects of cancer treatment.

This course from the Jennifer Young Training School uses online learning to give you an understanding of the biology of cancer, the science of its treatments, the biological drivers of resulting side-effects, and the protocols and products available for delivering safe and dedicated treatments to clients with cancer.

This is a certified course accredited by FHT. Upon successful completion, you will have the foundational background knowledge needed to welcome cancer patients appropriately and with an understanding of their condition. You will not learn how to welcome cancer patients to your spa or practice and be insured to do so. To gain that knowledge, see our oncology touch qualifications.

Evidence for the benefits of oncology touch therapy treatments
