By: Nikki Rasmussen
Spa Owner Nikki Rasmussen, who is also a Registered Nurse, says, “This day is one of the most enjoyable events of the year for YOLO. To be able to raise awareness for such a worthy cause is really inspiring. The real beauty is the support it gives to Breast Cancer survivors”.
Yolo offers all the services of a day spa, such as massage, facials and waxing as well as advanced anti-aging laser therapies. Rasmussen continues, “My approach is a little different, in that I’m always conscious of sterility and client’s special needs. For instance, all of my massage therapists are trained to be aware that Breast Cancer survivors may have Lymphodema, which might require adaptation.”
Cancer survivors also have very specific skin concerns, such as radiation burns and fragile skin. YOLO carries is Clinical®’s Cancer Care skincare solutions. Nikki states, “This product line is for patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments. Not only do these products help create vibrant and healthy skin, they also address important issues, such as radiation burns”.
Is Clinical®’s Cancer Care skincare solutions are available at YOLO and are priced at $76-$135.
Donations for Breast Cancer will be accepted at YOLO throughout the month of October, with 100 percent of all funds donated to the Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation. A portion of all Massages sold during the month of October will also be donated.
