Mother Daughter Spa Day Member Highlight: Ivory Isaacs

On Sunday, July 19, 2015 from 3-7pm, nearly 80 young girls from nonprofit A Kid Again to enjoy a day with The Charles Penzone Salons. The spa day goes beyond just a day of pampering. Along with haircuts, manicures, facials, massages, and dinner, the event offers a safe environment for girls in treatment for life-limiting and terminal illnesses to support one another. It enables these girls to temporarily escape the medicine and the hospitals and be what they truly are – girls. It also gives their mothers a well-needed break and a chance to share quality time with their daughters during a few pleasurable hours of pure indulgence.

Meet 12-year-old Ivory Isaacs. Ivory was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor called Ependymoma when she was 5 years old. Within 48 hours of Ivory's diagnosis, she underwent multiple surgeries that resulted in multi-organ failure and a coma. Ivory spent weeks in a coma, and was not expected to live. But one day, she decided to wake up! A trech was placed and she set off to learn to walk, talk, and eat by mouth again.

Ivory did 31 rounds of high-dose radiation. Seven years later, she is cancer free, but not from the side effects that come with undergoing intensive treatment. Ivory currently sees many specialists, and has had over 50 surgeries to date.


             

                                      

One of Ivory's favorite days of the year is when A Kid Again takes families to King's Island and she gets a chance to ride the roller coasters. She is a lover of horses and rides as often as she can find a horse to ride. Ivory plans to "pay it forward" through her involvement in A Kid Again, and hopes that her story serves as an inspiration for someone going through cancer.

The Charles Penzone Salons is a strong advocate for causes that empower women and support children, and salon and spa professionals will carry on this tradition by donating their time and talent at The Grand Salon in Gahanna/New Albany. Since 1999, The Charles Penzone Salons has hosted the Mother/Daughter event, providing a day of pampering for girls with life threatening illnesses and their mothers.

What's All the Tape About?

The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body's natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons without restricting the body's range of motion. It is used successfully with a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, nuerological, and medical conditions. Kinesio Tape can be applied in hundreds of ways and has the ability to re-educate the muscular system, reduce and eliminate pain, inflammation, and bruising.

Here is a testimony on how well Kinesio Taping works:

"I was seeing Beth for my Plantar Fascitis for both feet. I was walking with a limp and was in constant pain with every step. SHe applied Kinesio Tape to both feet and massage therapy for several weeks. I am now walking normal, NO PAIN, and back to exercising regularly. My plantar fascitis is gone! I strongly recommend taping to all my family members, friends, and everyone with muscle and pain issues."- Gina Baker


The Charles Penzone Salons has Kinesio Tape available a la carte or as an add-on to a massage.

During this stand alone service, your condition will be assessed by our Kinesio Taping Certified Practitioner and the area of concern will be taped. 30 mins, $40. Additional tape applications $10/each. (Available at Dublin, only)

Eyebrows
Never have to fill-in your arch line again! This procedure can add fullness and definition to thin or sparse eyebrows. Defined with ultra-fine strokes which simulate real hair, customized color is added to fill in select areas or to recreate the entire arch, which will frame your eyes and lend expression to your face.

Eyeliner
Always wake up looking your best! Permanent eyeliner colors can range from a softer, subtle look to a darker more defined result. Line the upper, lower or both lids based on your desired effect. Designer Eyeliner is available for a more dramatic effect.

Eyelash Enhancement
Eyelash enhancements create the appearance of thicker eyelashes. Permanent color placed in your lash line and around your lashes can make your eyes look brighter, younger, and more expressive.

Lips
Achieve instant fullness and definition to your lips by adding permanent color with full lips or lip liner. This service helps to correct the size, shape, faded, uneven and thin lips. Facial lines around the mouth are immediately camouflaged and lipstick bleed is eliminated.

Areola Restoration
Areola Restoration is a service offered to change the appearance of the areola. Often this service is performed to reconstruct the areola after a mastectomy or to help shape the area after areola reduction surgery. This treatment can help conceal the scars or restore the round shape.

Scar Camouflage
Scar camouflage is a service that minimizes the appearance of scars caused by facelift or other plastic surgery.
