Oncology Esthetics Now Offered at Atir Natural Nail and Skin Care

Jackie Truitt

Atir Natural Nail and Skin Care, in Acton, now offers oncology esthetics for those battling cancer and other immunocompromised conditions that are greatly at risk in a nail salon.

“We’ve all heard about the hidden dangers in nail salons, from cuticles cut to the point of pain and tools that are not properly cleaned,” says senior esthetician Jackie Truitt. “The goal of oncology esthetics is to provide a measure of comfort, compassion and care. We walk beside immunocompromised clients on their journey, guiding and educating them while treating the changes and challenges that occur in their nails, skin, hair and scalp.”

Truitt says that Atir was founded 10 years ago on the concept of clean and safe nail and skin care, with licensed staff equipped to provide healing services for individuals that are particular about their care, including those with compromised immune systems, the elderly and children. Free consultations for oncology patients and their caregivers are offered at Atir on weekdays, by appointment.
