Spa Esoteric, a full-service day spa located in Historic Downtown McKinney, Texas, announces a new line of services tailored for clients diagnosed with cancer. Provided by staff members who are certified and trained in oncology care, the new services include oncology skincare, hair care and massage. The McKinney spa is the first in North Texas to offer these kind of oncology-focused spa services.

“No one’s life is untouched by cancer,” said Monika Norman, owner of Spa Esoteric. “Yet, at a time when healing, comforting touch is needed more than ever, most people—including many spa professionals—are apprehensive to touch cancer patients. With these new services, our goal is to provide safe, nurturing spa treatments that help patients get away from it all and feel pampered and ‘normal,’ when most of their schedule is filled with medical appointments and treatments.”

Designed to complement patients’ ongoing medical care, Spa Esoteric’s new oncology aesthetic services help address the physical and emotional side effects of cancer. The spa’s staff has undergone oncology-specific education and certification training in order to understand and address the unique needs of cancer patients’ compromised skin and immune systems, as well as hair loss and resulting self-esteem issues.

To ensure that services for those battling cancer are affordable, each Spa Esoteric oncology-related service is priced at $50 per
treatment. The spa also offers a “companion program,” whereby an oncology client may bring a friend, loved one, relative or other caregiver for a service at the same time, also at the $50 per session price.

“We recognize that caretakers need relaxation time and pampering as well,” said Norman, “and anything we can do to help the caregiver only helps the cancer patient too.”
