Champneys, the UK’s leading health spa group has announced its partnership with Cancer Hair Care, the UK’s leading Hair Loss support charity, to launch its ‘Hair Loss Friendly Spa’ campaign across each of the Champneys spa resorts Tring, Henlow, Forest Mere, Springs and hotels Eastwell Manor and Mottram Hall.
As part of the campaign, Champneys will offer a range of cancer friendly support services including specially trained Hair Loss Friendly therapists at each spa resort who are able to provide scalp care guidance to guests as well thoughtful touches such as wig stands and head scarves. The aim is to help women who are undergoing cancer treatment to feel welcomed and nurtured during and following their spa visit.
Jasmin Julia Gupta, the ‘Hair Loss Friendly’ campaign creator and founder of charity service Cancer Hair Care said, “When a woman loses her hair, it is often a traumatic experience. Left unsupported she can experience image anxiety and isolation. There are many subtle barriers that unintentionally result in women with hair loss not accessing nourishing experiences that could boost their self-confidence. Together with Champneys, we can make hair loss one less worry.”
Cancer Hair Care and the ‘Hair Loss Friendly’ campaign is being supported by Mrs Dorothy Purdew OBE, Champneys co-owner and chairperson, who says, “Champneys is delighted to be working with Cancer Hair Care. When I discovered this fantastic charity I realised how important their unique approach to supporting women during hair loss due to cancer treatment is, and I was inspired to support them. I really hope that other spa groups will also join in.”
As part of the ‘Hair Loss Friendly Spa’ campaign, Champneys has also partnered with the Made for Life Foundation which supports those diagnosed with and recovering from cancer and Made for Life wellness therapies are now available across all Champneys spa resorts. Made for Life therapies are suitable for anyone, including those going through cancer treatment, and will include Hand on Heart, a relaxing back, scalp and facial treatment, Catch the Breath, a soothing back and scalp treatment and Soft Touch Therapy, a deeply relaxing touch to the face or body. The therapies all use Made for Life Organics products which are hand blended in Cornwall and are ideal for sensitive and sensitized skin.
