Luxury spa and wellness centre Maya Blue Wellness at Titanic Hotel Liverpool has launched a range of treatments suitable for those who are receiving, or have received, medical care for cancer.
Therapists from the spa have undergone extensive training to enhance their current skillset with the ESPA Training Academy and the Amethyst Trust, a specialised training facility that enables spas to welcome people with experiences of cancer.
Molly Stoll and Sophie Bolland, two members of the Maya Blue Wellness team, were assessed across three days on the accredited Standards Authority for Touch in Cancer Care (SATCC) course, learning theory and practical techniques to safely perform and adapt the nurturing treatments, plus consultation skills to ensure safe planning and an understanding of medical terminology.
Created by leading names in the spa and wellness industry, including the founders of ESPA and the Amethyst Trust, the SATCC provides nationally-recognised training that supports therapists and ensures those touched by cancer have access to safe and welcoming spas.
Three face and body treatments are available as part of the ESPA Nurture and Support programme; Be Nurtured Facial, Be Nurtured Massage, and Be Nurtured Back, Face and Scalp Massage. Designed to soothe guests and nourish their bodies, the experiences begin with breathwork and visualisation to support relaxation while enhancing wellbeing through holistic approaches.
Speaking about the new treatments, Maya Blue Wellness’ spa manager Sophie McDermott comments:
“We’re delighted to now offer this specialised service alongside our extensive treatments menu to help make Maya Blue Wellness more inclusive and welcoming. Our team is committed to providing a relaxing experience for all our guests, so we’re extremely proud to now offer safe and effective treatments for those experiencing cancer.”
Brian Connor, Titanic Hotel Liverpool’s general manager, added:
“We pride ourselves on providing our guests with exceptional service and attention to detail. This wonderful addition to Maya Blue Wellness is a testament to our commitment to delivering the highest standards of care.”
