Santa Monica, CA, July 20, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Santa Monica-based esthetician Diana Ralys completes certification in Clinical Oncology Esthetics® and expands practice to serve individuals with, or recovering from, cancer. The certification, earned through Clinical Oncology Esthetics® training facilitated by Touch for Cancer, prepares professional estheticians to provide safe, personalized spa treatments to individuals with health-challenged skin.
Through Clinical Oncology Esthetics® (COE), Diana Ralys underwent extensive training in understanding how cancer and therapy treatments affect the body at the dermal and lymphatic level. The program explored the side effects of cancer therapies, how those are further compounded by various medications and the importance of proper sanitation to support weakened immune systems. Certification also required Diana learn how to perform gentle, yet effective protocols using compatible skin care ingredients.
“Beyond keeping my practice on the cutting-edge, this certification will allow me to safely serve a new, and very deserving, base of individuals with health challenged skin,” Ralys said. “My goal is that through the power of the esthetic touch, I can provide a soothing escape for individuals battling cancer.”
“Estheticians work with the largest organ on the human body – the skin,” said Morag Currin, founder of Touch for Cancer. “Understanding how to safely and effectively treat the skin, particularly when it is challenged by cancer is paramount to the psychological and physical care of the client.”
Ralys will offer the specialized treatments at Premium Skin Care by Diana located at 1821 Wilshire blvd Suite 630 Santa Monica, CA 90403 beginning July 1st 2011. The treatments will use safe and tested products, which are free of fragrances, parabens and sulfates.
