My Mom has cancer, but still loves her spa time. There hasn't been anywhere I can send her alone, so I go with her to make sure her facials don't include procedures that would be harmful for her. Not a bad job, since I get some treatment, too!
Many women undergoing cancer treatments want to find ways to manage skin changes, pain, sleep disruption, anxiety or stress brought on by cancer treatments. A spa by its very nature should be a resource, but most spas are not trained in the needs of this very special client.
So I've become a Certified Oncology Esthetician by Touch for Cancer, a leading provider of specialty training in the field. I've also taken oncology massage courses with Tracey Walton, an award-winning educator in Massage for Cancer through the Benjamin Institute. Now I can safely adapt facial and massage therapy sessions to fit the needs of oncology patients and cancer survivors.
With this being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I will be donating 100% of the proceeds of the Gentle Comfort or The Healing Hour Treatments to charities related to breast cancer. Although these two treatments are designed to easily adapt to the needs of cancer patients, they can be received by women who do not have cancer. So join in, and let's get the total donation amount to soar!
If you want more information on spa treatments for cancer patients and survivors, please click Oncology Esthetics and Massage Therapy Spa for Cancer Patients or call me at 917. 596. 9535.
ps - My Mom and I have found our spa sessions to be a good time to bond, so you're welcome to bring a friend/loved one. I'll set up 2 tables, and I'll spoil you both!
