Five Wellbeing Studio + Spa Partners with Wellness for Cancer to Bring Adaptive Wellbeing Program to Cancer Patients

Five Wellbeing Studio + Spa (Five Wellbeing), a Littleton-based day spa and yoga destination, recently partnered with non-profit Wellness for Cancer to adapt wellness treatments specifically to the needs of those affected by cancer, including cancer patients, survivors, and their caregivers.

“Our goal is to allow guests to feel comfortable, pampered and not feel like a patient,” says Betsy Abrams, Five Wellbeing's founder and owner. “We are creating a safe and mindful experience for anyone touched by cancer. That can be someone newly diagnosed, experiencing cancer at any stage, a cancer survivor, and also cancer caregivers.”

The Wellness for Cancer program teaches providers to create a non-clinical environment so the guest can experience a feeling of normalcy and treat themselves to self-care.

All Five Wellbeing front desk staff learned specific verbiage that allows for compassion and empathy for the guest while guiding them towards treatment options that will best serve them. Moreover, all Five Wellbeing therapists took hands-on training about how best to create a safe and comfortable environment for the client. The therapists learned specific protocols for each of the Spa treatments; the protocols guide the therapists toward the best support possible for each individual client, based on where the client is in their cancer experience.

“The training helps us learn the medical history we need to know, as providers, about each guest," Abrams said. "We've learned to ask those questions in a safe and caring way that allows the patient to feel safe and maintain their dignity."

Protocols and treatments have been adjusted to accommodate the various needs of cancer patients. In addition, Five Wellbeing offers complimentary or reduced rates for caregivers.
