I love being part of a dedicated team here at the Big C.
Its so fulfilling offering oncology therapies to people that are going through a tough time.
My role at the Big C is to offer safe, therapeutic treatments to Service Users and their carers to aid relaxation and support well-being.
My work at the Big C enables me to support people with life limiting conditions and help promote the benefits of relaxation through gentle touch therapies.

Frequently asked questions
- How did Jennifer Young develop these treatments?
The Jennifer Young team listened to cancer patients, cancer survivors and cancer care specialists. They took advice from lead nursing staff about the ingredients that they shouldn’t use, they did lots of research about the best ingredients to use and kept trying the products. They asked others to try them and listened when they were told about very special and very specific skin care needs.
- How do I buy the Jennifer Young products used in my treatment?
Speak to your Jennifer Young Therapist or a member of the support team and they will be able to advise you further.
- Why do you only offer one Jennifer Young treatment?
As a charity we rely on the generosity of our supporters in the local community. This funds all our support services including our complementary therapies and Jennifer Young treatments. We recognise the importance of wellbeing and the benefit these treatments can have on people affected by cancer. If you like to continue having treatments, please speak to a member of the team or your Jennifer Young Therapist to find out more.
We know that cancer can affect us all in different ways. From the physical effects of a diagnosis and its treatment, to dealing with the emotional impact on ourselves, our families and those close to us. We offer a range of therapies at Big C, to ensure your physical and emotional wellbeing is cared for. Choose from gentle massage, relaxation, reflexology and reiki.
