Seventh Wonder Day Spa Provides Care for Cancer Patients in Jacksonville

St. Vincent’s Walk of Hope and and Indian Native Bring Hope to the “Walk”

Falli Shah, the owner of Seventh Wonder Day Spa in Jacksonville, Florida, has been described as a very giving and intuitive person. She is the one who provides relief for those patients in the “Walk of Hope” a pathway that connects the radiation oncology department with the DePaul Medical building, where the Seventh Wonder Day Spa is one of many information, and healing based “shops” that line the hall. The Day Spa, I can imagine, is one of the more anticipated locations, with its menu of ancient Eastern Therapies and energy based offers. This is a place where providers like Shah give care to patients of hysterectomies and double mastectomies. As you can imagine its a change in ambiance that requires an open invitation to those who may not otherwise seek out the comfort and stress relief they need. The “Walk” as they call it, is a comfort zone of sorts that brings talented and dedicated providers together to create an environment of understanding for cancer patients in a day spa environment.

Shah, who operates the Day Spa within the St. Vincent Cancer Center, seems to handle the clientele with expertise as she states that “The ancient Eastern therapy (Reiki) can be helpful to patients who cannot withstand a more traditional massage but need the stress-relieving benefits.” she recently said in a Florida Times Union review. Most Day Spas have the challenge of capturing their local clientele, but this location has no problem creating differentiation within the walls of the hospital, with energy therapies and a staff that cares. The vision of the St. Vincent director, Cynthia Farah, certainly contributed to this urban escape.“We wanted to provide a soothing and healing environment for our cancer patients,” said Farah. (Florida Times Review) Recognizing the connection of the mind in healing the body.

The Seventh Wonder – Shah Brings Themata to Jacksonville

Sustainability within the mind-body connection is something more prevalent in the hearts of everyday people like you and me. Don’t worry, its not only those undergoing therapy who are able to enjoy the healing hands of Falli Shah and her staff at Seventh Wonder. They have a second location as an established day spa providing the traditional massage, mani/pedi and intensive skin therapies for anti aging. Shah a native of India also brings her training in threading, a safer alternative to waxing, that removes unwanted hair with a loop of cotton thread. Threading is also a method of brow shaping growing in popularity among the spa masses. Ear coning is also provided at Seventh Wonder. This fascinating therapy may not be for everyone, but it works! Coning helps to pull our impurities from the ear canal with heat and smoke. Including ear wax, residue and other interesting elements. This one you’ll have to try for yourself.

If you’re going for what I like most which are the facials, you’re in good hands. The menu includes pulsed light rejuvenation for acne, skin texturing, and sun damage. Depending on your flavor of the day, or season, you may go for a series of microdermabrasion facials, or hyradermie to target the neck and eyes. Just in time for summer. I’ll let you do a little more exploring of the menu combinations for your own indulgence.

Though not build by the Greeks or Egyptians, this day spa is still a ‘must see’ or theamata, (wonder) as the Greeks would say. Seventh Wonder brings an international feel and an immersive setting of relaxation. A little wonder in an unexpected place. Say hello to Falli for us!
