Runnels Center Offers Spa Treatments for Cancer Patients, Past and Present

Aesthetician Aileen Moran receives COE certification; Mississippi’s only certified oncology aesthetician on staff; Runnels Center provides calming, rejuvenating spa treatments to those who have specialized need

Jackson, MS, August 02, 2011 --( The Runnels Center now provides the specialized, sensitive cosmetic care that those with or recovering from cancer need. Aesthetician, Aileen Moran, recently completed an intensive, five-day training program in Clinical Oncology Esthetics© (COE) hosted by the specialized training organization Touch for Cancer. With this unique certification, Moran is able to perform safe and personalized spa treatments to individuals with health-challenged skin as Mississippi’s first certified oncology esthetician.

Asked about her new certification, Moran affirms that "We understand the benefits of looking and feeling your best and believe that dealing with cancer shouldn’t stop you from getting the comfort and rejuvenation that spa treatments provide."

She explained that for those undergoing or recovering from cancer treatments, changes to the body, including the skin, can be numerous. Patients may experience dry skin, rashes and loss of elasticity as a result of various cancer therapies.

Additionally, patients may have weakened immune systems, increased skin sensitivity, heightened sensitivity to sensory stimulation - all factors that can interfere with experiencing the benefits and enjoyment of typical spa treatments.

At one time, cancer patients seeking the much needed comfort and pampering of spa treatments may have been fearful of the effects of treatments or avoided spa treatments altogether because of their unique health circumstances.

"Now Runnels Center can assist," as Moran went on to state. "With our new specialization in oncology aesthetics, we can tailor our treatments to your unique health needs."

SKIN the Spa offers custom facials, massages and other skin and body treatments that can offer such benefits as pain reduction, mood improvement and increased energy levels. To assure comfort to patients, these treatments use gentle and effective products that don’t irritate skin. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact SKIN the Spa at 601.939.2457.
