Why the SATCC?

"The SATCC has undertaken some incredible work for those affected by cancer in developing a standard for touch in cancer care. As a result, we are also now able to turn our collective attention to consumers, as well the spa and wellness industries.  Our aim is to educate and highlight the importance of specialist training to the SATCC standard and the charter developed by our group of industry experts.

That knowledge can make a profound difference to quality of life during and following cancer treatment and its side effects. It is therefore an honour to be a part of the process, and to be able to further develop our remit to cover touch therapies for those experiencing the consequences of cancer and cancer treatments, including menopause, both via research including The Menopause Million and consequent training developments and knowledge sharing."

“Our aim together is to educate and highlight the importance of specialist training for cancer patients to the SATCC standard. That knowledge can make a profound difference to quality of life during and following cancer treatment and its side effects.”
