Four Seasons Resorts Bali Launch Groundbreaking Cancer Care Massage

February 2, 2021 Health and Wellness No Comments

World Cancer Day on 4 February reminds us of the need for collective action, and at Four Seasons Resorts Bali, it’s the perfect time to correct misguided beliefs that prevent cancer survivors from enjoying the holistic benefits of massage.

Following intensive training with certified specialist Christine Clinton, Four Seasons Resorts Bali has launched a groundbreaking Cancer Care Massage at its two spas: the all-new Healing Village Spa at Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay, and Sacred River Spa at Four Seasons Sayan in the foothills of Ubud.

In a first for Indonesia, a dozen therapists from both spas completed training along with Regional Spa Director Luisa Anderson – herself a former oncology nurse who has seen first-hand the side effects of cancer treatments, and how massage can improve quality of life. The therapists were paired with women living with breast cancer known as “Bali Pink Fighters”, a support group of the Bali Pink Ribbon Foundation. The Pink Fighters participated in massage trials for the hands-on part of the two-week training, and shared their personal cancer stories.

“It was a very emotional training,” said Luisa, who is based at Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay. “There wasn’t a dry eye in the room. The therapists were so touched by their connection with the ladies from Bali Pink Ribbon Foundation, and the participants were grateful to be touched both physically and emotionally through massage – something the rest of us take for granted, but which they haven’t had access to until now.”
