S k i n D e e p S a l o n & S p a a healing touch [ 48 ] • # dayspamagazine • october 2018 a healing touch Skin Deep Salon & Spa Coralville, Iowa A cancer survivor herself, Skin Deep owner Tracy Lacina has provided oncology off erings since 2010. C urrent options include hair and wig services (Skin Deep partners with nonprofi t Strands of Strength, which provides free wigs to women in need); face and body treatments; and relaxation, guided meditation and healing touch rituals. Each option lasts approximately 60 minutes, and the price never exceeds $55, notes Lacina. When working with "health challenged" spa-goers, therapists consider their medical history and current issues, which may include nausea, chemotherapy-induced rashes and radiation dermatitis. "My goal with every client is to calm, soothe and hydrate the skin, but each guest is going to come in with their own specifi c situation— diff erent chemotherapy for diff erent cancers—and all of this must be taken into consideration when setting up a spa visit," Lacina says. All of these off erings are performed by oncology-trained professionals—including Lacina's daughter, a licensed cosmetologist who assists with hair loss, cranial prosthetics and nail issues that can arise from cancer treatment. "There are times when someone walks through the door losing the fi ght, and more than anything they need to escape," says Lacina. "That's when I really have to step up my game to bring them the most relaxing experience possible. When your client fi nally reaches that state of total relaxation and you see the stress leave their face, you know you made a diff erence. That's all the reward I need." u COURTESY SKIN DEEP SALON & SPA Beautifully Natural Naturally Beautiful 1 . 8 0 0 . 2 7 2 . 1 7 1 6 w w w. b i o j o u v a n c e . c o m Visit us at: IECSC Fort Lauderdale Fl, October 21-22 booth # 100 ULTIMATE SKIN HYDRATION ICES Miami Fl, October 28-29 booth # 62
