Whether you’re in the middle of therapy for cancer or in remission, one thing that holds comfort for many is the power of touch. But until recently, booking in at your local spa or salon for a relaxing massage hasn’t been easy due to staff not always being cancer aware to give the treatments they’d like to.
Shared Beauty Secrets, founders of the celebrity’s favourite, the warming Lava Shells Massage, is pleased to help solve this issue with the launch of the first Cancer Aware Lava Shells treatment – Lava Wellness which will roll out in leading spas throughout the UK from 1st May 2016. Developed in partnership with spa educational program, Wellness for Cancer, Lava Wellness provides a safe and comforting treatment for clients living with or recovering from cancer.
Leading spas and salons signed up for Lava Wellness include Champneys Resorts, nationwide, Lifehouse Spa & Hotel, Essex, Spa Verta at Crowne Plaza Battersea, London The Serenity Spa at Seaham Hall, Co Durham, The Marker Spa, Dublin, Moddershall Oaks, Staffordshire, Beauty Temple, and Owl House Day Spa, Nottingham with many others expected to be confirmed over the next few weeks.
Based on the traditional Lava Shell Massage, using warm recycled Tiger Clam shells from the Philippines, the bespoke Lava Wellness treatment has been specially adapted to include counter balancing cooling shells to maintain the client’s core temperature, prohibiting risks of over-heating, whilst still delivering a deeply relaxing and comforting treatment. Lava Wellness allows for an experience that is especially effective in alleviating stress, aches and pains, working round any areas of concern, for guests with cancer or post cancer.
“Studies confirm the power of touch can decrease stress, anxiety, depression, pain, and fatigue for both cancer patients and survivors. These individuals receive many benefits from wellness and spa services,” explains Julie Bach, Executive Director of Wellness for Cancer. “We are thrilled to partner with such an innovative company and excited that Shared Beauty Secrets is committed to supporting their spas & salons in providing clients with services that will help them manage medical treatments and lead healthier lifestyles. The natural warmth of Lava shells combined with their cool shells to balance creates a feeling of comfort and wellbeing.”
