ASAYA Specialised Cancer Well-Being Care


Newly adapted treatment offerings are introduced during October Breast Cancer month

with a Cancer Aware” series of seminars and yoga programmes.

This October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Rosewood Hong Kong honours its guests and the broader community touched by cancer by launching adaptations of its well-being programmes for the specific needs of guests who are either undergoing or emerging from treatment, living with cancer or thriving long-term. Asaya’s therapists have been carefully trained in partnership with globally accredited charity Wellness for Cancer and it now offers adapted massage and treatment techniques, including care around lymphedema awareness. The introduction of these offerings is combined with special “Cancer Aware” seminars, modified yoga classes and talks throughout October.

  As the leading global authority in teaching wellness centres to be “cancer aware,” Wellness for Cancer works with the world’s best-in-class practitioners from traditional medical, integrative medicine, wellness and spa arenas. The charity’s training philosophy is that the well-being of every guest touched by cancer is improved through an evidence-based lens of supportive practices and compassion.

To extend the message of education and foster greater understanding around naturopathy and cancer within the wider community, Asaya will host a series of informative talks and engaging yoga classes on Thursday 20 and 27 October, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. This Cancer Awareness series includes a 45-minute modified yoga class with Asaya guest instructor and yoga guru Victor Chau, followed by an in-depth talk by resident naturopath and Asaya Anchor Coach, Dr. Tal Friedman N.D.
