Introduction to Oncology Esthetics -2 Day Class
Time & Location
About the Event
If you’re considering working with cancer patients in your practice, there are a few things you need to know.
Oncology is actually not as “niche” as you might think. There are 14.2 million cancer survivors in the US in January 2017 – so it’s highly likely that some clients who walk into your practice are battling or have survived cancer regardless whether you specialize in oncology or not.
When such clients walk into your spa, there are specific questions you need to ask to help customize a treatment for their specific needs. Since many of these clients are undergoing cancer treatments, which takes a toll on the body, you’ll need to pay attention and ask a lot of questions to avoid contra-indications when delivering skin treatments.
Besides physical conditions, we also need to be mindful of the psychosocial and mind-spirit-emotion aspects when delivering facial treatments to cancer patients. Remember, a person diagnosed with cancer is going through a lot. That precious time spent in your treatment room or spa gives them a reprieve from their challenges and an opportunity to relax and recharge.
This class will walk you through modifications needed to safely work on an oncology client present or past! Be the first in your area and capture the market!
