Directory of oncology trained therapists launched

The Jennifer Young Training School has launched a Spa and Therapist Finder for cancer patients to find oncology trained therapists who can offer them spa experiences. For cancer patients, there can be additional implications for accessing trusted therapies and skincare products, ranging from emotional wellbeing to physical relief.

Founded by therapist trainer, Jennifer Young, the spa finder enables clients to locate therapists who have completed specialist training at the Jennifer Young Training School, including Control of Cross Infection in the Post COVID-19 World. The training aims to make sure therapists and their clients feel safe and confident in the treatments that are being given and received; over 5,000 therapists have undertaken the training. 

Jennifer YoungThe Spa and Therapist Finder is promoted through the brand's consumer site, Beauty Despite Cancer, reaching more than 250,000 people each month.

Commenting on the launch of the Spa and Therapist Finder, Jennifer Young (pictured), says:

“The spa experience has changed exponentially for cancer patients over the last 10 years and it's incredible to see so many amazing therapists who are passionate about delivering caring and nurturing support to individuals when they need it the most. However, it's not enough to just do the training, we have to give clients the tools and ability to find safe and supportive treatments. That's why we created the Spa and Therapist Finder. I still hear horror stories about individuals being turned away from spas or given treatments that are far too intense during cancer treatment, so I can't express how important it is to make sure that you're on it if you're trained.”
