Becky Kuehn - Founder

Founder Becky Kuehn is:

  • A Licensed Master Esthetician and Cosmetologist for 33 years
  • Hope Coach
  • Holistic Cancer Educator
  • NCEA Certified
  • Founding and current President of the International Society of Oncology Estheticians and Allied Professionals.

Becky started her journey 37 years ago when she was diagnosed with cancer.  She never forgets the day she received the call from her Doctor – the sense of fear overwhelming, as was her uncertainty about the future.

She remembers the way the Nurses and staff cared for her, watching the impact it had on her husband and family as they traveled the journey with her.

A cancer diagnosis changes a person forever – forming her into the person she is today.  She found solace in God and her favorite scripture, Philippians 4:13 in order to get through this part of her life’s journey.

She shares the life lessons learned throughout her personal cancer experience with each class along with a fresh new way of using our talents and gifts as Spa professionals to care for those that are facing the uncertainty of life.

Becky’s 6 years’ experience of working with and direction two hospital programs, continues to feed her work’s passion in bringing compassion, knowledge, and validation of what the patient is experiencing that is so heartfelt apparent in everything she does.

Our Goal

  • To prepare all spa professionals to safely and compassionately care for clients with cancer.
  • Offer education, understanding and love to change the way we look at, and care for, our clients living with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Oncology Spa Solutions® goal and passion for sharing this training really started decades ago but came into full, clear view when I met a client in 2011 that had Stage 4 Renal (Kidney) Cancer.  He shared with me that his only JOY in life now was his weekly spa treatment.  You see, he was at the end of his life.

He knew that there were no more options for treatment as they had already tried everything without success.  When his Spa therapist found out he had cancer (oh yes, they will come to you and NOT share this important detail), the therapist (who was not trained) did not feel confident in treating him any longer and “fired him”, telling him he could no longer come in.  As he shared this with me, tears rolled down his face. I will never forget that moment….

This was heartbreaking to me, because it never should have happened. A therapist with proper training could have confidently cared for this man and given him joy for the rest of his life.

I hope you decide to invest in this unique, and life-changing, training so you can feel confident to help clients like this when they will need you the MOST.

OOXX,

Becky

History

This inspirational Spa training started in the US in 2013 and has changed the lives of over 1000 students and many more clients.  The success of this training confirmed to us that we as human beings have a desire to CARE for others and just need the right education to feel CONFIDENT in serving and caring for those that need us the MOST.

Many of our grads are now working within hospitals, cancer centers, volunteering with the American Cancer Society, receiving doctor referrals, some have successful Non-Profits and some that are simply and wonderfully “blooming where they grow”; caring for clients with cancer within their current businesses.

If you are looking for a Spa training that will give you the specific information needed in order to offer safe, custom Spa or Salon services for health compromised clients that will also be a life changer, then this is the training for you!

You will learn that being mindful and present in the moment with your clients will not only change their life but yours as well.

Values

Faith – Hope – Love…. the greatest is Love!

We live in such a chaotic world where we are all so busy, work too much and very often we can barely keep track of our own needs much less anyone else’s.  I began to feel that if we could all add a little LOVE back into our world we could make a change in our lives and the lives of those around us.

Feeling like a “little pebble” in a “big pond” I wondered what adding some LOVE into everything that I did would do.  It started with little things like smiling at everyone, opening doors for others, talking to strangers and waving to people on the street.  Then I adopted a new motto and added it to the end of my email signature:

“Change your world; Change the world.”

It was interesting to see how others responded; some thought that it was nice, some asked how to institute change, and some sat back and just observed.

As the year progressed I started to notice the people and the world around me was being impacted.  In an industry where “vanity rules” and perfection is the goal and only what is on the outside matters (or at least that is how it is sometimes perceived), I started to see the changes.  Small at first, but now a year later the impact of the “pebble in the water” is visible.  People all over seem to have caught the “caring” mode or re-found it.  I hear students tell me they have a new excitement about their “old” career.  I know that it is the reason Spa and medical professionals choose their careers in the first place; they care about helping people.    Somehow we got lost, but we are finding the way back to our place in the world.
