Miami, FL (July 01, 2015) − Wellness for Cancer–the first organization to establish standardized, objective, cancer-focused training and business criteria for the spa and wellness industry–has certified national wellness locations to provide treatments and services to clients who have experienced or are living with cancer.  As members of the global Spafinder Wellness 365® Partner Network, these locations will be identified with a special Wellness for Cancer badge on Spafinder.com and recognized as a provider of safe, therapeutic services for cancer patients.

Wellness for Cancer is partnering with Spafinder Wellness, Inc.®, the global resource for feeling good and living well all year round, to help people easily find qualified wellness providers who have been trained to offer cancer patients services, such as therapeutic massage, facials and manicures or pedicures.

“Our goal is to help those living with cancer—including friends, family and co-workers—easily find ‘Cancer Aware’ wellness locations like these with confidence,” said Mia Kyricos, chief brand officer of Spafinder Wellness, Inc.®. “Cancer patients and survivors are among those who need wellness services the most, and through our partnership with Wellness for Cancer we can help them lead healthier lifestyles and decrease the stress associated with cancer.”

Certified properties also accept Spafinder Wellness 365,  “I Care” eGift Cards, which can be used to give the gift of nurturing to friends, family and co-workers who are in need of relaxation and comfort.  A percentage of proceeds for the sale of each “I Care” eGift Card will be donated to the Wellness for Cancer educational fund.

“Studies show the power of touch can decrease stress, anxiety, depression, pain and fatigue for both cancer patients and survivors, and these individuals receive many benefits from wellness and spa services,” said Julie Bach, executive director of Wellness for Cancer. “We are excited that these properties have committed to providing clients with the services that will help them manage medical treatments and lead healthier lifestyles.”

Medical specialists treat cancer as a chronic disease, and recognize the need for patients and survivors to lead healthy lifestyles, due to the increased risk of additional diseases and conditions as a result of certain cancer treatments.
