Morag Currin of Health Challenged Esthetics literally wrote the textbook on Oncology Esthetics.
A true industry pioneer and visionary, Morag is returning to California with her three day program for estheticians. We’ve already hosted this once and I believe any serious esthetician or spa owner needs to experience this education–whether you choose to cater to cancer patients or not, you need to know how to safely treat them when they are in your spa. Even cancer survivors, post-treatment, have special needs and restrictions. Do you know what they are? I sure didn’t.
This program includes lecture, demonstration and hands-on practicum with cancer patients in the spa environment. You’ll also be educated by an outstanding oncology nurse, one of the highlights of the first seminar. Participants will leave with the ability to offer safe, beneficial treatments to clients with health-challenged skins, and with a thorough understanding of the issues facing clients undergoing cancer treatment, including side effects that impact skin and contraindications for treatment.
If you’re wondering how to expand your customer base, it’s time to look at marginalized groups who have a strong need for self care, as well as high levels of stress. These are customers you may have shied away from, for fear your treatments might not be beneficial. Customers who desperately want and need your treatments, but don’t know if they’ll be safe or effective, or if you’ll even understand their health issues.
These potential clients include cancer patients, as well as other people with health-challenged skin: organ transplant patients, people in recovery, and even people with severe sensitivities.
As the spa industry moves toward a more meaningful focus on wellness, we have a tremendous opportunity to reach out to groups we have previously ignored, out of fear or ignorance. I think the health challenged segment will offer our industry some of the most profound growth opportunities we’ve seen in years. But education is essential. This is your opportunity to be in on the ground floor of a new and exciting movement. Whether you practice in a clinical or spa environment, you’ll leave with an important new skill set that very few people in the industry possess.
