A lot of organizations are proudly supporting global and local drives to raise awareness of breast cancer this October. Breast cancer is still accounting for more than 30% of female deaths in the UAE. And one in 10 Arab girls born today is predicted to be diagnosed with the disease later in life. With these statistics, SensAsia Urban Spa is once again encouraging you and I to seize the chance to support this vital cause, while we improve our own wellbeing.
With their strong 11-year partnership with Friends of Cancer Patients, this year SensAsia has created a bespoke treatment, embroidered neck pillow and essential oil for its 2016 initiative. Once again, profits will be donated to the Sharjah-based charity, which has been fighting to improve the lives of local people affected by cancer since 1999, under the patronage of her highness Sheikha Jawaher Bint Mohammed Al Qasimi.
Known throughout the region for their exceptional massages, SensAsia has put forward a firm favorite to raise funds. A SensAsia ‘must-try’ – Bali Chic – is a trademarked, tailored and consistently popular 90-minute massage. It combines long strokes, pressure point and Thai stretching techniques to de-stress the body and mind, zap tension from troubled spots and soothe the soul.
For October, the treatment will be rebranded the “Be Aware Bali Chic massage”, in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This sensational massage goes for AED 499, with 10% of the profits going to Friends of Cancer patients.
The SensAsia team has also lovingly-designed and produced a limited number of bespoke neck pillows in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This chic, black, delicately-embroidered pillows feature a beautiful pink ribbon design. They come with tastefully-placed, empowering, quotes from iconic females such as Audrey Hepburn. The gift-perfect pillows can be heated and draped around the neck and shoulders to ease muscle tension. They can be used at home or on-the-go. For only AED 299, you can have one, with 100% of the profits being donated to Friends of Cancer patients.
To complete its Be Aware trio, SensAsia has also created a limited edition adaptation of its best-selling ‘Signature Blend’ essential oil. It Combines a unique, uplifting mix of lemongrass, geranium and lavender. And the oil bears a pink ribbon for October. A few drops onto a pillow, into water for use with a burner, or mixed with body products and applied to skin will provide an intoxicating scent, and an immediate pick-me-up. The oil costs AED 60, with 100% of the profits being donated to Friends of Cancer patients.
All these Be Aware goodies are available at all SensAsia Urban Spa locations throughout October.
