Controlling Breast Cancer
During October, breast cancer organizations use the color pink to raise awareness for the disease and remind the public about early detection, diagnosis, treatment, and support. According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women (excluding cancers of the skin), accounting for nearly 1 in 3 cancers diagnosed in U.S. women. This is why it is so important to pay attention to early warning signs and receive annual clinical breast exams and mammograms after the age of 40 (sometimes earlier depending on health and family history).
Statistics from the National Cancer Institute show one in eight women being diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime & more than 30% diagnosed after cancer has spread beyond the localized stage. Early detection is critical.
While breast cancer is not completely preventable due to factors such as age, family history, and late menopause that are not adjustable, there are several risk factors associated with the disease that you can modify. Postmenopausal obesity, alcohol consumption (two drinks per day can increase risk by 21%) and physical inactivity are under your control. The American Cancer Society recommends taking steps to help prevent the onset of breast cancer. Maintain a healthy weight throughout life, balancing caloric intake with physical activity; adopt a physically active lifestyle, engaging in at least 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity five days per week; eat a healthy diet with an emphasis on plant sources; and limit your intake of alcoholic beverages.
As you strive to achieve maximum health, the spa will continue to support your goal to achieve whole-body wellness through a multitude of relaxing treatments for mind, body, and soul.
Make an Investment in YOU!
Many people visit Spas to find balance, take time for themselves and relax. Follow these tips to get the most out of your Spa visit.
First, always arrive early to allow time for questions and concerns, and to enjoy the facility.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Your therapist will be happy to address any questions or concerns you may have.
If you have allergies or other health issues, inform your therapist.
After your treatment, discuss issues related to your treatment, products used, or future treatments.
If you receive a massage, drink plenty of water afterwards. During a massage, toxins are released within the body. Water helps flush these toxins so you can look and feel your best. Also, take home a good exfoliator and moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated.
Don’t forget to schedule your next appointment before you leave so you can visit the Spa when it’s most convenient for you.
And, finally, sit back, relax, and enjoy! Your Spa experience is an investment in YOU. You should always leave a feeling and looking better!
