Skin and Nail Therapy

Chemotherapy affects rapidly dividing cells and so it affects skin and nails just as it affects hair growth. When you undergo chemotherapy or other medical treatments your skin may become excessively dry resulting in splitting and cracking. This can result in discomfort, loss of sensation, infection and may also undermine your confidence and agility. Skin and nail therapy can help.

Your therapists will discuss the most pressing issues affecting your skin and nails, and offer ongoing remedies to nourish, hydrate and encourage cell growth. The range of conditions affecting you will be monitored. Our therapists will apply appropriate natural products during sessions, as well as offering home care information and advice.

Skin and nail therapy can support other therapies offered at Dove House.
