We’ve been thrilled recently to train spa teams in our fully accredited Cancer Touch Therapy at Aqua Sana spas at Center Parcs resorts around the UK. From June, Aqua Sana is introducing three new wellness treatments, designed by Made for Life, with all profits from the training going to us here at the Made For Life Foundation.

The new treatments, which will be added to the Aqua Sana menu, are suitable for anyone who may be dealing with stress or anxiety but were specially designed for people who have had treatment for cancer. The treatments being launched in Aqua Sana Spas include a 55 minute ‘Hand on Heart™’ back, neck and scalp treatment, a 25 minute ‘Catch the Breath™’ back and head treatment and a 25 minute ‘Soothe and Nurture’ organic facial.

These Made for Life Treatments use Chinese Tui Na techniques to provide a nurturing and relaxing experience. Using slow gentle rhythmic movements and touch, guests will enter a meditative state of relaxation, allowing them to escape the strains of daily life and feel rested from the physical and mental toll that cancer and treatment for cancer can take on the body.

The new treatments, which use multi award-winning Made for Life products, will be available at all five Aqua Sana Spas from June. The products, which are blended in Cornwall, were the first in the UK to receive 100% organic certification across the whole range.

Kay Pennington, Group Spa Manager for Aqua Sana said:

“We want to be able to give everyone a chance to feel a million miles away from the everyday and have some good quality ‘me time’. We are delighted to be working with Made for Life to add these wonderful new treatments to our menu. For 20 years the Aqua Sana experience has turned many spa shy people into spa fans and we strongly believe the spa experience should be available for all to enjoy. We have already received wonderful feedback about Made for Life from our therapists and now look forward to hearing what our guests think!”

Amanda Barlow, MD of Made for Life said:

“It’s wonderful when a spa really confidently tunes in to the needs of people who are undergoing treatment for cancer. Many people, even those who have cancer aren’t always aware that some spa treatments may be unsuitable for them to experience. Our philosophy and education enables spas and therapists to have both clarity and confidence to throw those spa doors open wide to all. This has been a key objective since we started providing massage for those with cancer in spas in 2003.

Like Aqua Sana, nature is at the heart of what we do, we are very person-centred and are passionate about how both our products and treatments can help people to feel well. The feedback from the teams at the Aqua Sana Spas has been fantastic; they tell me and my training team that they are really looking forward to delivering these treatments from June and opening up the treatment world to people who arguably need it more than most.”

Each spa is nestled in peaceful woodland, making them the perfect escape from the everyday, a place to get close to nature and spend time with someone special. Take in the beauty of the forest and listen to the soothing sounds of nature as you unwind in the outdoor heated pool. Each spa location boasts a variety of at least 15 spa experiences to try.
