What Is Oncology Esthetics?
All people with cancer, undergoing treatment or in recovery can benefit from Touch Therapy, however it is important to know the level of therapy required for each individual. Oncology esthetics is a relatively new specialty field of care, perhaps this is the first time you've ever heard of it, but it's becoming more recognized & available due to the many benefits it provides. Already widely available throughout the United States, it is sadly absent in most of Canada. As one of the first certified Oncology Esthetics in Saskatchewan, we are passionate about offering this much needed service to our clients and committed to encouraging more estheticians to acquire this certification.
Oncology Esthetics focuses on the individual who needs a gentle, safe, light touch and approach to skin care treatments that assists in easing the discomfort that your body and skin endures due to cancer therapy. Health challenges, medications, & the side effects of cancer therapy as well as our environment can cause irritation, dryness, and fragility of the skin.
Oncology Esthetics offers individualized treatments to help soothe, hydrate balance and calm the skin. Balanced happy skin, deep relaxation, tension and stress that melts away...a much needed escape at a much needed time during an individual's journey and recovery. 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.
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.

When booking your appointment be sure to let booking staff know of your need to see a skin specialist certified in Oncology Esthetics.

My mother-in-law came in for a massage – she has stage 4 lung cancer. She was treated with respect, made to feel comfortable and the staff were very accommodating. Thank you for making her feel special. She was so happy to get out and she indicated that the massage was very gentle and relaxing. I value the services that the spa provides.
