If you are recovering from cancer, cancer treatment, illness, stress or bereavement, we offer a Recovery Spa Treatment which is personalised to suit how you feel on the day.
The Lifehouse Recovery Treatment is carried out by Spa Therapists who have been specially trained by the NHS Christie Trust to personalise treatments for people with cancer or in post cancer recovery. The Recovery Treatment features a technique called HEARTS which stands for ‘Hands On, Empathy, Aromatherapy, Textures and Sound’ which is especially beneficial for guests feeling anxious and stressed.
This Recovery Treatment is all about adapting spa treatments to suit individual needs, so there is no set format. In the allotted treatment time it is quite possible for a guest to enjoy a mini-facial, scalp massage and relaxing foot massage. Others may choose to have a deeply relaxing back massage with some Reiki to balance them. Any combination is possible and the treatment can include oils or be performed whilst the guest remains fully clothed. It allows the therapist to perform a truly holistic and personalised treatment that responds to all of the senses.
We are proud to have been recognised by Wellness for Cancer (in association with Spafinder Wellness 365) for meeting the standards required to provide safe and nurturing therapies for our guests with cancer or in post-cancer recovery.
