The tpot advanced tranquil touch oncology massage is for qualified spa and beauty therapists that want to support clients living with and beyond cancer.
Someone is diagnosed with cancer in the UK every 90seconds*. The benefits of massage are widely evidenced and highly regarded in the support of clients to manage the emotional, mental and physical aspects of a cancer diagnosis and / or clinical treatment.This is a CMA accredited two day in-person practical workshop, underpinned by access to the tpot training portal, where each learner will be able to access a range of additional on-demand learning and resources both pre and post the training. The training includes practising on real life models and requires successful completion of all course work, written assessments, case studies and reflective assignment work. On completion of the course learners will understand:
The pathology of cancer
The common clinical treatments and interventions for cancer care, and the side effects and challenges of such. Including what you can do as a result in the treatment room.
The variations to product, treatment and facility selection dependant on the client and type of cancer / cancer treatment being received.
How to communicate with confidence and feel more comfortable talking with clients at varying stages of a cancer / chronic disease journey. Including end of life.
The true power of touch and the evidence in massage based modalities for cancer care, and in common practise in a clinical setting.
How to adapt their current face and body treatment protocols to better suit and support clients living with or beyond cancer.
How to perform the tranquil touch technique in a variety of positions, adaptations and modifications to consider the uniqueness of each individual client and any props they may be living with (such as stoma bags, lines, prosthetics etc)
How to recognise green-washing in product selection and move beyond the PR and pretty pictures in supporting your client skincare needs.
How to integrate additional facility inclusions (and what to exclude), the right product choices, and personalised and professional lifestyle and home-care advice.
