Southington, CT (September, 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 A Moment Away Spa to provide treatments and services to clients who have experienced or are living with cancer. A Moment Away, a member of the global Spafinder Wellness 365® Network, will be identified with a special Wellness for Cancer badge on and recognized as a provider of safe, therapeutic services for cancer patients.

Wellness for Cancer is partnering with Spafinder Wellness, Inc.®, the leading resource to help people live and work well, 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 A Moment Away 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 and anxiety associated with cancer.”

A Moment Away has been involved with the Southington Relay for Life, as well has participated in many fundraisers over the years for clients, families and people who have been touched by Cancer. We are excited to be involved this year in a walk/run in Ocotber 2015 for a family has been touched by Cancer.

“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 A Moment Away is 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.
