Christine is a clinical specialist, an alumni of Harvard Medical School and her work was recently recognised by The Global Wellness Institute. The spa team at Monart undertook specialist therapist training in medical massage for cancer patients Skincare, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Reiki, Lymphatic Drainage, Energy Medicine and Therapeutic Massage.

The aim is to offer inclusivity in a spa setting, and as such Monart has created a profoundly restorative and balancing Touch Therapy Treatment Programme for guests living with cancer or with a history of cancer.
To ensure that every visit to Monart feels just like an escape for a guest living with Cancer a pre-arrival consultation is carried out via phone or email; ensuring that upon arrival that all of the needs for each guest are met and catered for in a sensitive fashion.
