Course Summary

Become qualified to offer hand, nail and foot treatments 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.

Jennifer Young’s postgraduate diploma in the oncology Hand, Nail and Foot Treatments is a certified qualification designed to give spa therapists, beauty practitioners and healthcare workers the understanding, knowledge and confidence to provide specially designed treatments to clients going through the different stages of cancer, without requiring medical consent.

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. They can also provide practical relief for some of the physical side effects of cancer treatment such as painfully dry skin, sore cuticles and brittle nails.

This course at the Jennifer Young Training School is a combination of online learning and the supported completion of case studies. Through it, you will learn about the biology of cancer, the science of its treatments, the biological drivers of resulting side-effects, and the protocols and products that you can use to deliver safe and dedicated treatments, empowering you to treat clients appropriately and with confidence.

This is a certified course accredited by the Federation of Holistic Therapists. Upon successful completion, you will be able to welcome cancer patients to your spa or practice for hand, nail and foot treatments. You will be insured to do so, without requiring medical consent.

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 is often a memorable, transformative experience.
