We recently found out from a health care professional that an OTI OE graduate attended a conference where the focus was lymphedema care. The esthetician presenting was representing the spa she worked at, which is owned and managed by a cancer survivor. This graduate had the opportunity of a captive market – all cancer survivors [...]

We always encourage our OTI OE graduates to get more advanced trainings in additional areas besides Oncology Esthetics to further enhance their Oncology Esthetics Foundation Training. Here is a wonderful opportunity to expand your knowledge further to focus on the ‘mental health’ issues that a survivor will experience after a diagnosis of cancer. While we [...]

WINNER: Genevieve Albert Her Story: "My life wasn’t touched by cancer until a few years ago, when an aunt that I was close with was diagnosed with the disease.

There are always questions about the success of a training program and what format is best. Since online training seems to becoming stronger, we recognise that individuals have different time restraints; budgets and learning styles. At OTI, we offer up a variety of options from in-class to online. There are many professionals who can comfortably [...]

We are constantly asked the difference between grading and staging especially after someone has had a cancer diagnosis. Let’s assess this aspect of grading in more detail as we may hear about Grade 3B…..and if this means nothing to us, this information below may give you an idea of what this means. Staging is a [...]

Should Your Spa Offer Oncology Esthetics?

By | 2016-10-31T07:06:18+00:00 October 31st, 2016|Morag's desk|2 Comments

There is a need to care for those afflicted by cancer, outside of medical treatment, offering them wellness services and compassionate care. At Oncology Training International, we train estheticians to have knowledge [...]

Facials and/or Breast Massage – What do Breast Lumps Feel Like?

By | 2016-10-24T23:02:40+00:00 October 24th, 2016|Morag's desk|Comments Off on Facials and/or Breast Massage – What do Breast Lumps Feel Like?

As estheticians we typically include massaging the decollete during a facial and for those of us who offer massage therapy, we massage around the breast area, if not the actual breasts themselves. It is pretty apparent that different cultures have different levels of comfort when is comes to having their breasts massaged. This is a [...]

FROM THE AUTHOR: “Two years after we tied the knot, we began trying to start a family in 2008. It was not until two years later that we were told we couldn't do so on our own. When we first started fertility treatments in 2011, there were limited resources and I found comfort in writing [...]

By | 2016-09-25T16:49:13+00:00 September 25th, 2016|Morag's desk|Comments Off on Do I Need to Take a Refresher?

Estheticians usually have good intentions when they attend our Oncology Esthetics Foundation Training, but we are finding that spa professionals who do not use this new found knowledge (for a number of reasons) for years or months suddenly get thrown off track when they do get a client who is dealing with active cancer or [...]
