Mariposa Therapy Suite

Tara Hamilton

Welcome to Mariposa Therapy Suite with over 17 years experience in the industry delivering therapies  to clients and over 3 years experience working with cancer patients at both Worcester and Redditch Hospital,  I became very passionate about my work and wanted to help make a difference to those living with and beyond cancer.  I am delighted to say I have now opened Mariposa Therapy Suite, I will be offering specialist treatments for those undergoing a cancer diagnosis.

Dealing with cancer and its long term after-effect can be an emotional and stressful time. Cancer not only attacks on a physical level but also very deeply on an emotional one. It effects how we feel about ourselves, how we are treated and want to be treated by those around us, It’s important that we try and stay positive and to lead as normal a life as possible, however that can be easier said than done as having cancer can stop us from having access to things that others have to help them relieve the stresses of everyday life.

Having  access to treatments such as massage, relaxation and beauty plays a huge part in helping you to balance your mind and body.

With this in mind I am delighted to be able to offer clients a range of therapies specially designed for cancer patients and their specific unique skin type, these therapies will not only help bring relaxation and take away stress but can also help relieve symptoms caused by your medication.

All therapies on offer are carried out using Jennifer Young products, a skincare range designed for people living with or beyond cancer or those with highly sensitive skin. The products used are 100% natural and organic and are designed to soothe and moisturise dry, sore and sensitive skin and to help address some of the skin and nail related side effects which regularly occur when undergoing treatment for cancer.

Jennifer Young has a BSC (Hons) in Biology and is an experienced micro-biologist, an associate member of the Royal Society of medicine, qualified aromatherapist and product formulator. Jennifer has worked directly with many groups that support cancer patients, having initially been asked by her local NHS hospital to help with the development for a range of skincare for those going through and beyond treatment, together with the help of clients and a selection of Radio & Chemotherapy nurses Jennifer has created a range of products and treatments that allow us to perform luxury treatments to clients living with and beyond cancer.

Having Chemotherapy for the last 12 months I have been searching for a beauty therapist qualified to deliver safe treatments. The products used at Mariposa Therapy Suite are specially made for cancer patients. Tara is very approachable and very welcoming. The treatment room smelt lovely and I felt very relaxed. Tara is very knowledgeable about cancer treatments.
