3 Things You Might Not Know About Oncology Esthetics

Oncology esthetics is a way for spas and medi spas to give back to their communities. Through the power of touch and soothing care, you help people living with cancer go through the most difficult time in thCoachMe Expert Intervieweir lives. Before offering this specialty treatment in your spa, here are 3 things we learned about oncology esthetics that you might want to know: 1. Oncology clients come in for relaxation first Surgeries are stressful for everybody but it is doubly difficult for people with cancer who are dealing with this life-or-death condition every day.  Research shows that oncology clients seek help for relaxation first before skincare. Soothing massages and facials have been shown to make them need less pain medication afterward. 2. Oncology esthetics must mitigate side effects and prevent infections The skin is the largest organ of the body and the first line of defense against diseases. For oncology clients what is normally harmless for the rest of us could leave them vulnerable. For example, moisturizers can contain alcohol that worsens such side effects like radiation burns and extremely dry, peeling skin. 3. Oncology clients need personalized treatment What works for one guest may not work for another. For untrained spa professionals, knowing what’s effective for each client will be a matter of trial and error. You could also cause harm unwittingly. On the Expert Interview with Dori Soukup and Morag Currin, President of Oncology Training International (OTI) and Founder of Oncology Esthetics®, spa and medi spa professionals will gain valuable information on how to tailor treatments and avoid dangerous trials and errors, among others. Morag is the acknowledged expert and trainer on Oncology Esthetics.

(Contributed by Walter Bergeron)Mastermind group If you’re really serious about growing your spa business, you’ve probably considered joining a Mastermind group, or may now be part of one. Engaging in the power of a Mastermind group is a fantastic way to navigate yourself down the shortcut to prosperity! Here are top 3 ways you can make the most out of your Mastermind group: Secret Gem #1. Don’t be the smartest person in the room. Now this may sound counterintuitive because it sure feels good to be the sharpest tack in the bunch. In a Mastermind, however, this can be a great disadvantage to you. You should seek out groups with members who are exceedingly more successful than you are. Better, take a shot and get into a group whose members are way out of your league. Your growth—and consequently, your spa business’s—will come from stretching your reach and becoming involved with those who have done far more than you. Secret Gem #2. Pay for it. You get what you pay for. You also get back the same amount of effort you put into something. Masterminds are no exception to these time-tested truths. When there is a sacrifice or a substantial cost to membership, you will find that you put much more effort into the group as well as demand better solutions from it. When you write that very large check for your Mastermind it will make you demand results from the group. You will not settle for mediocre solutions from them. Feeling the pain of knowing that the cost of getting in was substantial will produce results many times more valuable than the cost of the membership. Secret Gem #3. Get uncomfortable. Part of the power of Mastermind is to stretch your mind to what else is possible. You can do that more easily when you are in an unfamiliar place. Travelling beyond your backyard will force you out of your comfort zone and put your mind in a state that will more readily accept alternative suggestions and different inputs from others. You will need to communicate what you are thinking and reveal things about yourself and your business that are uncomfortable, leaving you feeling vulnerable and exposed. Fear not, for this is where the breakthroughs happen. If you keep yourself guarded and you will not let others in to help you, then you are wasting the resources of this powerful group dynamic. Take these tips to heart and they will help guide you to the transformational results of a “Mastermind Fortune.” Have some thoughts to add to this? Share it with us in the comments below.
