Oncology Spa Services are known to reduce some of the common side effects of cancer therapies like chemotherapy and radiation. Due to the nurturing qualities of these spa treatments, many patients will a notice an improvement with their complexion, plus a decrease in stress and anxiety.
Through proper skin care, we can help you look and feel better. It is important to select skin care and personal care products that do not contain synthetic fragrances, harsh ingredients and exfoliation properties, colors or other known reactive ingredients that may instigate reactions.
- Sensitivity or allergic reactions to products (even past sensitivity/reactions)
- Severe dryness and dehydration
Depending on your particular condition, you may not have a skin reaction until you are finished with treatment. Skin reactions come and go; they may seem to get better on their own, or they may come back again much later.
Our therapists have been trained by the American Cancer Society and Massage Associations, as well as certified in Oncology Skincare. If you are newly diagnosed or a cancer survivor, we offer services that will help to relax your mind, body and spirit while maintaining the health and balance of your skin.
Prior to your initial service, we will provide you with a 15-minute complimentary consultation, which allows us to review our intake forms, plus the services that we offer you. Please note that all patients must consult their Oncologist and receive written approval before we start any new spa treatments.
The following 2 forms need to be completed and returned to us before we can massage any person currently undergoing any Oncology treatments. If they are a survivor the forms are not necessary.
Please bring these completed forms with you to your consultation.
