Spas are places devoted to overall well-being through a variety of professional services that nurture body, mind and spirit.
Skin care benefits
A facial is a skin care treatment to soothe, hydrate and protect the skin on the face, neck and shoulders. Love how your skin feels and looks by nourishing, revitalizing, and treating it well.
A facial includes a face, neck, shoulder and decollete (upper chest area) massage. Spa or therapist dependent a facial may include a hand and arm, and foot massage too.
Why spa? Because it feels good and offers many benefits.
An oncology-trained therapist can safely provide you with a customized, safe and satisfying spa experience to meet your current needs.
Massage is in essence the provision of touch and includes a wide variety of touch applications. Spa clients report many positive changes after their oncology massage.
Reported benefits include:
- reduce pain and fatigue
- decrease anxiety and nausea
- improve sleep
- ease isolation
- enhance body image
- nurture well-being
Body, skin and nail care spa treatments all include massage as a core component of the service.
