Oasis Day Spa Honors Breast Cancer Awareness Month with In the Pink
Promo - Provides Spa-Goers with Vital Breast Health Info
YORK, N.Y. (October 2, 2007)To honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month this
October, Oasis Day Spa in New York
City is running In the Pink, an exclusive promotion that gives 15
percent off services and products on Mondays and Wednesdays to customers wearing
pink. In the Pink was created to fulfill two purposes: to provide
men and women with vital information about the importance of good breast health

serious illnesses or have friends and relatives with cancer, says Owner
Bruce Schoenberg. For many of our female customers going to a spa is less

have the opportunity to educate and spread the message about the importance of
good breast health for women.

will perform self-breast exams, a potential factor in early detection.
While there are differences between regular and medicinal
massage, a recent Prevention magazine article cited that 20 percent of all cancer
patients in the U.S. seek some form of massage therapy. Massage has been known
to help easy anxiety, depression, stress and nausea. Massage is in no way a preventative
measure or a treatment, and any cancer patient should get appropriate clearance
from his/her healthcare provider prior to scheduling an appointment.
