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 www.cancer.org 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.

Healing Hands Power of Touch Menu

HEALING HANDS FACIAL
Patients & Survivors$5
Caregiver$15

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.

POWER TOUCH FACIAL
Patients & Survivors$10
Caregiver$20

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.

LAVENDER AROMATHERAPY BODY WRAP
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.

Testimonials

"Luxury services at a great price. Try it — you’re worth it!"

Jill Snedden

"This is a really nice place to get a good haircut for cheap. $9.50-$13.50! You can give a really great tip and it’s still very, very affordable. The students do a really precise & excellent job under the supervision of their instructor."

Katie Riedinger

"Great instructors always willing to help! Students are always friendly and have welcoming smiles!"

Libby Schindler

"Had a facial with Christina and it was awesome..."

Teresa Prince

"You know.. these teachers deal with a lot and students constantly come and go with education being fast-tracked into graduation. I’m not going to get into the complaints (which I do have like everyone else) or discredit the bad reviews here. I enjoyed the majority of my time in school and Mrs. Turf was the most wonderful teacher to her students. I have never had a better teacher than her."
