    At Southsea Bathing Hut we recognise the power of gentle touch and a safe space to temporarily disconnect.

    These treatments are specially adapted for those going through or recovering from cancer. They are SATCC-approved and accredited by the Complementary Medical Association, and have been developed alongside oncology experts. 

    By using subtle energy techniques, mindful touch, reflexology, acupressure and comfort massage, these complementary therapy treatments are gentle and non-invasive.  Although they do not treat the cancer itself, they can help reduce side effects caused by conventional treatments, and improve quality of life and general wellbeing:

    • Encouraging deeper respiration and invoking feelings of calm and warmth, by stimulating the Parasympathetic nervous system
    • Helping you cope with pain or stress, by boosting endorphin secretion
    • Decreasing feelings of stress by reducing Cortisol production by the sympathetic nervous system
    • Relieving muscular atrophy and soreness due to prolonged bedrest and inactivity
    • Increasing range of motion where muscles are tight or uncomfortable due to inactivity
    • Decreasing oedema, also associated with inactivity, through gentle stimulation of circulation
    • Stimulating release of the "feel good" serotonin and dopamine hormones to help address unpleasant symptoms related to chemotherapy and radiation, such as fatigue and nausea
    • Deeply moisturising skin to increase elasticity and stimulate cell renewal

    All treatments are carried out using our own Southsea Bathing Hut products, to provide deep nourishment and restore natural balance to even most sensitive skin.  All products used in treatments are natural and organic, handmade by us, using only the highest quality natural ingredients for the best benefits.

    Our trained therapist understands that each person’s cancer journey is different. So, following a detailed pre-treatment consultation, our treatments are carefully adapted and tailored to suit every individual’s needs and/or limitations.

    We will also advise each client on the optimum time to deliver our treatments during the different phases of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormone therapies.

    These treatments are not recommended for clients who have had Lymph Node Dissection (LND) or Radiotherapy to the Axillary Lymph Nodes. Those clients should see our Touch Therapy treatments instead.

    Testimonial:

    I recently had a full body treatment with Hannah at Southsea Bathing Hut using their organic products. Hannah listened very intently to my current cancer diagnosis and all details pertaining to my current treatment plan. The treatment was simply amazing, with a feeling of laying on the waters edge with the sea lapping over me, the products also added to this feeling with the wonderful aromas of sea salt and seaweed amongst the other incredible natural ingredients they contain. I would highly recommend The Lagoon treatments to anyone undergoing chemotherapy or on an alternative treatment plan for a truly indulgent and relaxing time. My thanks to Hannah, Sam and the team at The Southsea Bathing Hut for offering these treatments at a very difficult time.

    This special treatment draws on Reflexology, a non-invasive complementary therapy that uses gentle manipulations and pressures on the lower legs and feet to invoke healing, deeply relax and bring balance between mind, body and spirit.

    Starting with a luxurious foot wrap, your therapist will gently massage the feet in circular movements. Acupressure, performed by gradually pressing onto key points around the leg and foot, will stimulate pain relief and muscle relaxation.
