For people battling cancer, and those who stand beside them, treatment is far from relaxing. For cancer patients and survivors, it is important to relax, unwind, and focus on their wellbeing. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many more spas are offering the maximum pampering for any men or women affected by breast cancer.
For this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Spa at Pier House Resort & Spa (Key West, FL) and Top Spa at La Concha Hotel & Spa (Key West, FL) will be offering a Go Pink Pedicure ($50). This relaxing pedicure includes a sugar scrub, hydrating foot mask and massage, followed by the choice of any pink polish. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Community Foundation of the Florida Keys, a non-profit agency that provides financial assistance to qualifying people who are in cancer treatment. Additionally, Pier House will be going pink with pink uniforms, lighting, and awareness information for the duration of the month.
One Ocean Resort & Spais offering Be Inspired ($155, 75 minutes), a treatment including a Signature One Ocean Massage combined with a Custom Blended Hair and Scalp Treatment, created specially to evoke positive energy and to honor all of the women and men battling breast cancer. Five dollars from every "Be Inspired" treatment booked on October 1-31 will be donated to “In The Pink: A Boutique for Women Living with Cancer.”
The Florida Cancer Aware program has trained all of the staff at SiSpa, the award-winning spa at the Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spaand Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort & Spa, in cancer care protocol. The spa has introduced a specialized spa menu called Comfort Care Classics, designed exclusively for guests who have cancer as well as cancer survivors. The menu includes massage, facial, body, and nail services that promote relaxation and stress-relief. An accompanying caregiver enjoys a 20 percent discount on regularly priced services. Staff training included an eight-hour course followed by a five-hour hands-on practicum.
Along with the new menu, both the Pompano Beach and Singer Island SiSpas will run a Facebook contest the first and third weeks of the month. Followers can nominate a deserving cancer fighter/survivor to receive a complimentary Comfort Care Classics service, and the nominator of the contest winner will get a prize as well: a 50-minute service of their choice from the regular spa menu.
Acqualina Spa By ESPA (Sunny Isles, FL) has joined the fight against breast cancer with the Gift of Love package ($360). In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the spa has partnered with Susan G. Komen Foundation and will donate 10 percent of all package proceeds to the foundation. For the fifth year running, guests who reserver a n ESTPA two-hour experience ritual will receive a complimentary pink lip balm as a gift of love. Guests also have access to the spa's luxurious and relaxing facilities before and after treatments.
