MCKINNEY -- SPAtaneity has started offering bedside spa services at three hospitals in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Patients at Baylor McKinney, Baylor All Saints and the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders can now get eco-friendly pedicures, manicures, massages and facials while in the hospital.

SPAtaneity is a licensed spa that goes to the patent's room to provide the services. The salon went mobile in 2010 when Baylor All Saints asked the owner to come into the hospital and pamper new moms.

"We service oncology patients and we are also working with those going through rehab," said SPAtaneity owner, Missy Malone.

For Crystal Assad, this was the perfect solution to what can be a exhausting experience.

"It's awesome, it's a relief after what you go through giving birth to a baby," said Assad.

Assad delivered a little girl three days ago at Baylor McKinney. She said the service was not available when she had her son three years ago.

"Being pregnant, you don't want to expose the baby to all the toxic chemicals, so it's a relief to have a service that has the products that they have," she said.

Malone said all services are performed with the highest level of cleanliness with no water, soakless pedicures and manicures.

"We actually use these unique disposable manicure and pedicure kits," Malone said. "It has all the antibacterial properties, moisturizers and emollients needed to soften, sanitize and hydrate."

SPAtaneity travels to patients, but appointments are necessary.
