Massage therapy is a valuable self-care practice. It is often viewed as a complementary therapy that can be part of a holistic approach to cancer care, alongside medical treatments and supportive therapies. 

Massages will be given on a first-come, first-served basis in the lobby. They are free to patients and caregivers.

Enjoy a personal consultation with one of our expert hair stylists. They can do a dry cut or a head shave if you prefer. Our stylists can also assist with wig styling, cutting, and general wig care. All services are provided at no cost to patients. 

Our team of compassionate volunteer stylists is accustomed to working with individuals experiencing hair loss because of cancer treatment and will be sensitive to your needs and concerns. 

Salon services will be available in the lobby.

A makeup consultation is not just about applying makeup; it's a journey of self-discovery, empowerment, and confidence-building that leaves you feeling confident, knowledgeable, and ready to conquer any makeup challenge. This free resource will be offered in the lobby.

Pet therapy can improve mental, emotional, and physical well-being by fostering positive experiences, companionship, and a sense of connection with animals. Swing by the lobby to meet our therapy dogs.

Led by experienced staff who understand the unique needs and concerns of people with cancer, this offering provides step-by-step guidance on tying scarves in different styles that cater to individual preferences and comfort levels. Whether you're looking for a simple yet elegant knot or a more intricate turban-style wrap, our team will teach you techniques that suit your style and help you feel comfortable and confident. This resource will be offered in the boutique.
