Cancer is a grueling process for both those diagnosed and those close to them. It often leaves the cancer patient’s loved ones thinking, “What more can I do to alleviate their pain?”

If you know someone who is currently undergoing cancer treatments or is in the recovery process, know that a trip to the spa can offer them benefits that will center their mind and body. From facials to special massages to energy healing, spa treatments are the perfect gifts to give your loved one who is suffering. And with Spa Week happening, you can book (what would normally be) an expensive treatment for only $50.

Ahead are approved treatments for cancer patients. However, if there’s any hesitation on whether a treatment may be safe or not for your person in mind, we recommend to consult a doctor.


Choose a gentle facial that moisturizes and brightens the skin. Avoid exfoliation and steaming. Since most facials involve both steps, the esthetician would be more than ready and happy to accommodate and customize according to your needs.
