Bellus Academy is partnering with Wellness for Cancer, a 501c3 organization that trains and equips spa professionals to provide safe, nurturing massage therapy services to individuals who are undergoing treatment for cancer or are recovering from cancer.
As the first beauty and wellness academy in the nation to offer the Wellness for Cancer curriculum, Bellus Academy is preparing estheticians and massage therapists to serve a very significant segment of the population—the National Cancer Institute has reported that one in two men and one in three women will develop invasive cancer during their lifetime.
Today guests who are undergoing cancer treatments are turned away from spas for services because there has not been an approved “safe” protocol. Our certificate training program will address this problem and provide professionals and students with the knowledge and practical training to treat cancer patients.
Treatments that must be avoided include all peels, wraps, any type of heat or steam and any detoxifying treatment. This training will instruct students on safe touch protocols and ingredients that will relax and pamper the guest.
50-HOUR PROGRAM WILL INCLUDE:
Ten, 1-hour study modules online
Two-day, onsite training with a certified instructor at Bellus Academy in Poway, CA
Knowledge and techniques to safely, confidently and compassionately offer comfort-oriented massage therapy to clients with various stages of cancer or who are recovering from cancer.
Learn pressure restrictions, site restrictions and position restrictions as well as modalities beyond touch massage.
The psychology and physiology elements of cancer are also addressed along with the side effects and emotions that may accompany cancer treatment.

“The teachers were amazing! Without Bellus, I wouldn’t have the rewarding life I have today. School was something I looked forward to every single day. I can’t believe I have a job that I love going to every day.”
“For the past year I have been working on super-yachts in Spain as a massage therapist for billionaires and have loved every second of it! I don’t know what I would’ve done without Bellus’ training and expertise.”
“I love how hands-on the nail program is at Bellus. I am a visual and hands-on learner and I appreciated the time and focus on my advancement throughout the program. I would definitely recommend Bellus Academy to anyone interested in beauty and wellness education, especially the nail program!”
“The program and educators in Make-up Artistry are exceptional. The curriculum was so well designed that each day I couldn’t wait to get to school and begin the next step in learning high-end makeup. I feel very comfortable after taking this class to apply for a job anywhere in makeup, including a Hollywood studio, theater, photography or in a high-end salon and spa.”
“As a cosmo crossover, the Barbering Program was not only an excellent way to brush up on the basics, but also the best way to take my career to the next level. The staff was so helpful in every aspect and I highly recommend the program.”
