Mission Statement

The Healing Hands Power of Touch program is lovingly designed to provide respite for cancer patients, cancer survivors and the caregivers who lighten their burden. We teach our students the power of their hands…the power of touch. It is our belief that this gentle power can, for a time, allow the mind, body and soul a brief respite from the realities of cancer.

We have partnered with The Beauty Lab in Delaware, Ohio to develop a soothing line of skin care products designed to deliver rich essential fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamin levels to secure hydration retention that has been lost, to provide a soothing and calming relief, and to provide repair from the effects of aggressive treatments…a repair that is overdue and much deserved. This insightfully planned product line is exclusive to Ohio State School of Cosmetology and The Spa School and complements our Healing Hands Power of Touch services and is available for retail purchase.

Several years ago the Healing Hands program was conceived by Spa School Manager, Stephanie Nixon. By early 2014 it became evident that this program had the ability to “touch” many more lives – it was then that the program was expanded and relaunched as “Healing Hands Power of Touch.” Soon after it was endorsed by the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Ohio; The Home Care Network; Young Survival Coalition; Ohio Health Oncology Patient Navigation program; and The American Cancer Society. We are proud to offer Healing Hands Power of Touch pampering services at all Ohio State School of Cosmetology and The Spa School locations. We are honored that our Heath, Canal Winchester, and Spa School locations have been selected by the American Cancer Society to be an official provider for their Free Wig Bank program. Students and staff have been trained to provide assistance with choosing and styling the perfect wig for deserving clients. Learn more about this awesome program at or call our Heath, Canal Winchester, or Spa School manager.

Ideally, all forms of cancer will be eradicated and our program would be unnecessary. Until that day arrives, we will continue to train our students to awaken within themselves the Power of their Touch – first, as students and ultimately as beauty professionals offering similar services in their own salons.

Because we want to offer you the highest and most appropriate level of care, an initial consultation is required for cancer patients, survivors or caregivers. Please contact your preferred school that as listed on the front of this brochure.

The pampering services described within reflect a
discounted rate for caregivers and a more substantial
discounted rate for cancer patients and survivors.

Patients & Survivors$5

Designed to nourish and relieve, our proprietary blend of powerful – yet gentle – products are designed to deliver nutrient rich omega fatty acids that regenerate and calm. Anti-inflammatory antioxidants, fatty acids and concentrated extracts nourish your skin. This soothing facial begins with a gentle cleansing, an omega zen pressure point massage, and a rich power house masque. While the masque is timed, your hands and feet are gently cleansed, massaged with a buttery balm then wrapped in heated mitts and booties. Finally, our organically compounded calming moisturizer is gently applied to your face leaving you, and your skin, rejuvenated and radiant.

Patients & Survivors$10

This decadent facial contains stress fighting antioxidants that combat inflammation while concentrated extracts assist in the rapid healing and reparation of damaged and stressed skin. After a gentle cleansing and facial massage, an added “boost” from our Reinventing Rooibos Exfoliation Scrub (optional) provides gentle exfoliation that allows for a deeper penetration of the nutrient rich masque that follows. A gentle hand and foot massage with heated mitts and booties will further relax you while the nutrient masque is timed. Our reawakening eye cream, high tea potency serum and organically compounded calming moisturizer complete this powerful and revitalizing facial.

Patients & Survivors$15

Shower away the day, then enjoy a total body exfoliation with Lavender Essential Oil and Sugar Scrub (optional). Lavender Essential Oil is then massaged over the entire body. Relax in a cocoon of warm blankets as your face and neck are gently cleansed and nutrient rich creams are massaged into the skin. Your relaxing treatment is complete after a head to toe spritzing of Lavender Aromatic Mist followed by a slathering of buttery organic body balm.

Patients & Survivors$5

Your manicure begins with a soak in warm aromatherapy essential oils that nourish your fingers and soothe your mind. A shaping of the nails is followed by a finger, hand and arm massage. Gentle exfoliation is optional. Pick a pretty polish to remind you of your relaxing day with us!

Patients & Survivors$10

Our feet do so much to support us – literally! Treat your feet to a relaxing pedicure. The rhythmic motion of the gentle leg and foot massage will lull you into a state of bliss. Exfoliating cream is optional. A pretty polish puts the finishing touch on this decadent treat.

Don’t forget – your scalp is skin and it needs special treatments and tender loving care. A healthy scalp is a happy scalp! Rosemary has been shown to rejuvenate the scalp and clear the mind while the massage stimulates blood flow (and it just feels so good!).

Includes shampoo, blow dry and round brush styling.

All services provided by students under the supervision of licensed professionals.


"I go to The Spa School. It’s a cosmetology school. You have to make an appointment. I was there on April 2015. Sometimes the service is great and sometimes it is, I wouldn’t say horrible because they are students. I was there April tenth. At Christmas time they give out gift certificates like buy one and you get two for the price of one. The cost is usually about $35. Because I bought them in December it is worth it. They do nail pedicures."

Mark Rylance

"Very Thorough & a Great Value. I’ve only been once for a hair cut & a wash, but am already planning my spa side visit. Treated myself, my daughter & my mother & the ladies we each had were great. They were meticulous & ensured the cuts were just right. Also loved that we had the opportunity to sit next to each other."

"The student did careful, excellent work. It took forever, but she was just trying to do it well. She trimmed and shaped my nails, massaged my feet and legs, painted them (having advised on the color). I got a pedicure."

Mark Moritz

"Run by students. They do a great job! Had a pedicure, manicure and facial."
