Cancer Support Services
During cancer treatment and immediately after, it can be difficult to feel good about your body. Most of us get a boost in self-esteem and in our overall outlook when we look and feel our best, but we don’t always have the time or energy to seek out massage treatments, aesthetics procedures, or other health and wellness options to help us feel we’re at our best. This can be especially true for people combating serious health issues such as cancer – a time when our mental outlook can make a huge impact on our health.
Current data shows that 1 in 3 women and 1 in every 2 men will develop cancer in their lifetime, and if you yourself have not experienced the potentially devastating effects of this disease, you probably have someone close to you who is in treatment for cancer or who is a survivor. While many cancers are treatable, anyone who has gone through treatment can tell you that treatment is sometimes worse than the disease. Because of this, and because cancer has touched the lives of so many members of the El Con Health and Wellness Center staff, we would like to invite current cancer patients and cancer survivors to take part in our services.
We offer a range of treatments and products that are appropriate at different stages of cancer care. If you are still in treatment, we will discuss safe aesthetics options with you and your doctor that will not interfere with your medical care. Once you are in remission, there are more options available to help restore your body’s vitality and your self-esteem, and we can help advise you on which treatments are best suited to post-treatment cancer survivors. If you have never had cancer, but are concerned about risk factors in your family history, if you have had long term UVA/UVB exposure, or if you are simply interested in preventative options such as our pre-cancer skin treatments or our medical grade topical skincare that is paraben-free and has low carcinogenic properties, we are happy to help you chose preventative measures that will best suit you.
In addition to massage therapy, which may be appropriate at nearly every stage of cancer care, we also have gentle facials and other spa treatments suitable to chemotherapy patients. We have a nutritionist who can help advise you develop a post-treatment diet plan. And once you are ready for a challenge, we have personal trainers in the building who can help you build your strength, and a nurse practitioner who specializes in well woman exams and hormone replacement therapy. If you have lost tone or have had changes of texture in your skin, are treating scars or areas of depigmentation, or are looking for hair re-growth solutions, we can help you.
At El Con Health and Wellness Center It’s our goal to help everyone feel better about their body, even when their body isn’t at its best.
