POSTED 08 Aug 2018 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
We believe that all spas should be accessible. Through our work with the Made for Life Foundation we have consistently ensured that we provide this support using appropriate protocols.
– Amanda Winwood, founder of the Made for Life Foundation
Armathwaite Hall Hotel & Spa in Cumbria, UK, has partnered with the Made for Life Foundation to offer Cancer Touch Therapy, a range of treatments developed especially for guests living with, receiving treatment for, and in remission from cancer.

The treatments on offer include: Hand on Heart, Catch the Breath, Soothe and Nurture, and Touch Therapy Deeply Relaxing Touch.

Hand on Heart, a back, face and scalp treatment, is designed to release tension, ease stress and calm the mind. It combines slow Tui Na Chinese movements, to give the guest a sense of tranquility, with a nourishing facial to restore the skin.

Billed as a nurturing and gentle treatment for the back and shoulders, Catch the Breath uses rhythmic techniques to soothe and rebalance the upper body.

Soothe & Nurture is an organic facial which is designed to restore the skin's natural luminosity. The ritual features Made for Life Organics products including balms and oils to nourish and cleanse the skin, as well as eliminate congestion and returning natural balance to the skin. The treatment finishes with a scalp and facial massage to calm and soothe.

The Touch Therapy Deeply Relaxing Touch face a or body treatment features a relaxing sequence of slow, soothing movements tailored to the guests needs, and is designed to induce a deep sense of relaxation.

Accredited by the Complementary Medical Association (CMA), Cancer Touch Therapy was developed under advisement from trained oncology massage teachers and advisors from the oncology team at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust and Macmillan, as well as Marc Innes, founder of the School of Natural Therapies.

Roberta Griffiths, spa director at Armathwaite Hall Hotel & Spa, said: "We are absolutely delighted to be working with the Made for Life Foundation and our team of therapists have welcomed the specialist training for guests going through cancer."

"We have always prided ourselves on being inclusive but the new Cancer Touch Therapy™ treatments we can provide enjoyable and relaxing experiences for all," she added.

Amanda Winwood, managing director of Made for Life Organics and founder of the Made for Life Foundation, said: "At a time when therapeutic and nurturing touch is most needed, 96 per cent of spas still turn people away whilst they are going through cancer."

"We believe that all spas should be accessible. Through our work with the Made for Life Foundation we have consistently ensured that we provide this support; using appropriate protocols combined with our 100 per cent organic skincare and wellbeing products."

"Our CMA accredited Cancer Touch Therapy training course has given the exceptional therapists at Armathwaite Hall the skills to confidently open their doors to anyone going through cancer and provide much-needed support," Winwood added.
