How do I complete my assessments?
The assessments for the theory learning are online multiple-choice quizzes, found in your course materials.
Your therapy assessments are done with a Jennifer Young tutor and are carried out remotely. You will be asked to book an appointment for a video session at your convenience.
You don't need to download any additional apps. We will send you a link and the tutor will see you there.
What are case studies and how can I complete them?
Each accredited oncology touch therapy course requires case studies. This helps you to develop your confidence when working with those living with and beyond cancer, in a safe environment.
You can ask anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer to be a case study. They can be actively in treatment or have been diagnosed in the past (subject to current government guidelines).
Your routine and case studies will be carried out via a video meeting with a tutor.
You will need:
- a model/case study
- a bed and linen
- any products to use in the routine
- a smart phone or other way of streaming the session via zoom

Why do spa and salon treatments matter to cancer patients?
Extra nourishment and care is especially important when going through or recovering from cancer treatment. Proven short term benefits include reduced pain and improvement of mood, reduced stress levels, reduced depression and improved sleep, reduced heart rate and lower blood pressure.
Long term benefits include reduced depression, mood disturbances and perceived stress levels and hostility, increased urinary dopamine, serotonin values, natural killer cell number and lymphocytes in breast cancer patients.
The full reference list can be found in our training booklet.
How can welcoming those affected by cancer boost my business?
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. This makes receiving treatments a memorable experience for many cancer patients. Often graduating therapists report that clients affected by cancer often become their repeat customers.
