I learned what a positive impact spa services have for oncology patients and cancer survivors while researching Healing Hands for our October issue. It’s really wonderful to see such a deserving group of people receive tender care from specially trained therapists. Even spas without oncology training can contribute to the cancer fighting effort, though, by donating proceeds to charity. Here are a few spas doing just that across the country.
- Ten percent of proceeds from every Chill for a Cause treatment—PINK Awareness Pink Grapefruit Facial ($129, 50 minutes; $179, 80 minutes), Fight Like a Girl Facial ($129, 50 minutes; $179, 80 minutes), and Live. Love. And get a Massage ($129, 50 minutes; $179, 80 minutes)—at CHILL SPA at Hotel Terra Jackson Hole (WY) will be donated to the Breast Cancer division of Saint John’s Women’s Healthcare Fund.
- The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Boston launched the Inner Strength (from $200, 1 hour 20 minutes) treatment, which uses massage techniques and aromatherapy to nurture and relax the core. Through the end of the year, 10 percent of the cost of each treatment will be donated to the Jimmy Fund.
- Guests of the Cornelia Spa at The Surrey Hotel NYC can indulge in the Champagne Pedicure ($95, 60 minutes) and honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month too. The package includes luxurious pedicure, pink cupcakes, and a small rose and lavender bouquet.
- A portion of proceeds from special ‘Bleau Goes Pink’ Swedish Rubdown Massage ($99, minutes) and Pore Perfecting Facial Treatment ($99, minutes) at Lapis Spa at Fontainebleau (Miami) will be donated to Susan G. Komen.
