Dunkeld House Hotel Dunkeld
World Cancer Day is Tuesday 4th of February, soft touch therapy can be extremely beneficial to people living with cancer and Dunkeld House Hotel's spa therapists are now fully qualified to provide CIBTAC endorsed and CM accredited Made For Life Soft Touch and Cancer Touch Therapies.
The Made For Life touch therapy treatments have been specifically developed to provide calm and relaxation to people suffering from anxiety or stress, and people going through cancer. They provide a window of time to disconnect from daily stress and reconnect with nature and stillness.
Touch treatment is important in a physiological and psychological basis. A gentle touch will lower cortisol and increase oxytocin and in essence, boosts the body’s immune system and releasing muscle tension. It also reduces stress and tension enabling better sleep and improving recovery.
The treatments are akin to a period of meditation, allowing the body to access the parasympathetic state where the mind and body are prompted into a ‘state of allowing’. This period of time allows rejuvenation on all levels – mind, body and emotions – including a natural boost to immunity.
