Essential Friends Spa in Swampscott, Mass., is focused on providing skin care for the special needs of clients fighting cancer. The spa's oncology facials attend to the effects that chemotherapy and other medications can have on skin. "Skin-care treatments have the ability to calm anxiety and pain, as well as increase comfort. The power of touch is very important during cancer treatments and is often overlooked with so many other issues," says Deborah Goldberg, a certified esthetician at the spa.
