Julie, Massage in Cancer Course  June 2019

I had an amazing day of training. Debbie was great at explaining everything about dealing with cancer patients. Her knowledge is impressive, especially from a medical/scientific/research perspective.

We were made to feel very comfortable and felt free to ask as many questions as we wanted. No question was too small and everything was explained brilliantly. The course definitely made me feel confident about dealing with this category of clients, which is new to me – Thank you!   Odry (October 2017)

SPECIALIST CANCER MASSAGE – I am so pleased to share with you my news . I have completed my training on “specialist cancer massage”, this verifies and certifies me to support all my clients and patients and not have to turn them away at a time when they need specialist therapy the most. Evidence-based research and medical support proves that people with cancer can have astounding benefits from receiving massage treatment.

Special thanks to Debbie at Keheren Therapy and “The Amethyst Trust” , you have provided me the solution to something that has frustrated me as a therapist for many years, this will enable me to continue to provide high professional competence and support to all of my clients/friends   – Sue B
