Course summary

Become qualified to offer massage for cancer patients in your salon, spa, clinic or rooms. This qualification is delivered online and can be completed at your convenience, to suit your schedule.

This course is part of the Jennifer Young postgraduate diplomas in oncology touch therapies which are certified qualifications designed to give spa therapists, beauty practitioners and healthcare workers the understanding, knowledge and confidence to provide massage treatments to clients going through the different stages of cancer, without requiring medical consent.

Massage can be one of the most profoundly healing and restorative treatments a person can experience at any time. However, we know through evidence-based research, that when someone is going through cancer treatment, living with cancer or recovering from it, that massage can have a powerful physical and emotional impact. Benefits can range from short-term improvements such as reduced anxiety, reduced pain and reduced nausea to long-term benefits such as reduced depression and increased dopamine levels.

This course is part of our Postgraduate Oncology Diplomas which are certified courses, accredited by FHT. Upon successful completion of the diploma, you will be able to welcome cancer patients to your spa or practice for oncology touch therapies. You will be insured to do so, without requiring medical consent.
