Jennifer Young, founder of www.BeautyDespiteCancer.com, has been teaching enhanced hygiene standards for decades. She brought professional oncology touch therapy qualifications and specialist skincare for cancer patients to the beauty and holistic world.
Prior to joining the spa community, Jennifer was responsible for enforcing the law regarding control of cross infection. During her time working for the organisation that writes and upholds the law governing infection control, Jennifer added post-graduate qualifications in Occupational Health and Law to her first degree in Biology. Working internationally, she has helped global organisations to protect their teams as well as their clients.
It is time for the spa industry to recognise the need for increased hygiene standards in the Post-Covid World. Jennifer Young has created an online accredited, assessed and certified qualification for spa, holistic and beauty therapists. The training is freely available to all – there is no cost for the training or the certification. The Jennifer Young Control of Cross Infection in a Post COVID-19 World certificate is awarded upon successful completion of the course.
The qualification logo will be made available to certificate holders to display online and in spa to reassure all that enhanced control measures are in place and are monitored.
The Jennifer Young Post Graduate Diplomas in Oncology Touch Therapies have hygiene standards at their heart. Jennifer believes that everyone deserves these higher standards of infection control. She is delighted to be able to share her expertise so that you can give your clients what should be their right.
Therapists and spa managers are asked to complete four parts of The Jennifer Young Control of Cross Infection in the Post COVID-19 World Qualification.
This is a certified course accredited by Federation of Holistic Therapists. It provides you with the knowledge to manage risk effectively and create risk assessments. 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
Undergoing or recovering from cancer treatment is often the time when extra indulgence and pampering is required the most. However, post-diagnosis, it becomes more difficult to find salons and spas who offer treatments, meaning that oncology massage, facials, and hand, nail & foot treatments are often a memorable, transformative experience.
