RAINFOREST CANCER CARE
Introducing Ireland's First Certified Cancer Aware Salon
What is Rainforest
Rainforest has proudly become the first salon or spa in Ireland to be certified as ‘Cancer Aware’ by global spa directory, Spafinder Wellness 365 and standardizing body Wellness for Cancer USA. This certifies that the Rainforest is highly-educated in safe holistic cancer care treatments.
Rainforest Cancer Care treatments - for men and women - are safe holistic therapies and are carried out by expertly trained therapists. Cancer Care treatments are endorsed by the Irish Cancer Society as a beneficial complimentary therapy that go hand-in-hand with - and not a replacement for - conventional medical treatment.
These treatments are aimed at easing the pain; discomfort and stress of those who are living with the disease and they can be taken before; during or after their programme of chemotherapy or radiation treatments.
What are Cancer Care treatments?
Rainforest Cancer Care offers bespoke holistic treatments that are tailored to each client’s exact needs.
Traditionally in Ireland oncology massage is offered to cancer patients in clinical settings such as hospitals; hospices and cancer care support centres.
Unlike clinical settings, clients availing of Rainforest Cancer Care treatments have the opportunity to relax in soothing non-medical surroundings and even spend their time with family & friends who can choose from our regular menu.
