M a r g o t E u r o p e a n D a y S p a E d e n O r g a n i c s S a l o n & S p a • october 2018 • [ 45 ] Founded by registered nurse and certifi ed esthetician Catherine Chamberlain in 2010, Eden Organics began off ering oncology- specifi c services the following year. "I know how diffi cult cancer treatment is for the mind, body and soul, so this is my way of incorporating my work experience as a nurse and love of caring for others," explains Chamberlain. Off erings include the Oncology Skin Care Facial (50 min./$60) and Oncology Massage (50-90 min./$75-$115). All Eden estheticians and massage therapists are oncology certifi ed, and the business has always been dedicated to using the gentlest products in its full range of services—a benefi t to those undergoing radiation or chemotherapy, who tend to have highly sensitive skin. "We use our own line of Earth Pure Organics skin care for all spa treatments, including the oncology options," says Chamberlain. "The formulas are natural, organic, vegan and free of parabens, phthalates and synthetic fragrances." In 2016, Chamberlain also launched the Eden Cares Program, which provides complimentary services—including facials, massage, makeup and lash application, and hair and scalp treatments— on select Sundays and Mondays to clients undergoing cancer treatment. "The most rewarding part is being able to give guests some time focused on them in a therapeutic yet nonmedical way, and to know we made a positive impact at a challenging time," she says. Froehlich has helped clients with cancer for more than 20 years—a journey that began when the medical director of the Breast Care Center at the University of Michigan was seeking a place to send patients for wellness services. "Until recently, we weren't allowed to off er massage therapy because some physicians believed it made the cancer 'spread,'" says Froehlich. "But with new research, doctors are not only recognizing the benefi ts of massage—as well as skin care and hydrotherapy—for their patients, they're now encouraging it!" The Margot oncology service menu features a Restorative Oligomer Spa Scrub & Massage (80 min./$170); Restorative Remineralizing Body Wrap (75 min./$155); Restorative Sea Calm Facial (60 min./$150); and Restorative Oncology Body Massage (60 min./$145). "We use only Phytomer products, which contain sea ingredients, and we customize each service to help soothe the body and mind," says Froehlich, explaining that the power of marine ingredients is often overlooked, but useful for helping the body remineralize and heal. "It's so fulfi lling to be able to play a positive role in our clients' lives," she concludes. "Their gratitude is immense, and we're proud to be able to off er them a wellness boost."
