ONCOLOGY ESTHETICS - CANCER PATIENTS, Skin Care Therapy & The Power of Touch

The purpose of a complementary therapy is not to treat Cancer itself but to treat people as a whole.

Oncology Aesthetics

We are proud to announce that we are now certified in the specialized area of Oncology Esthetics and provide customized skin care treatments for people living with Cancer.

Most Chemotherapy drugs block activity or ability of cells to divide or grow. The effects are not limited to cancer cells but normal growing and dividing cells leading to dermatologic side effects. Immune system severely suppressed causing higher risk infection.

Cancer patients who undergo chemotherapy and radiation treatments often suffer visible and painful side effects on their skin. The treatments, while killing Cancer cells also affect healthy cells including the skin and nails. Patients can suffer from varying degrees of hair loss, rashes, dry skin, peeling, blisters, swelling and loss of feelings and restoring a sense of well being.

With the numerous skin related effects from cancer treatments, complementary Oncology Esthetics can provide great benefits such as easing symptoms and skin reaction, improving skin and overall health.

Many complementary therapies are not typically incorporated into standard patient care in most Doctor's office, Hospital or Cancer Centers.

From facial skin treatments to hand, foot and scalp massages, each session aims to nourish the skin. The massage needs to be tailored depending on node removal and type of treatment. Services have shown to increase to production of endorphins which in turn reduce stress levels and aid in pain management
