health & wellness

The Pink Ribbon Place understands that when we get sick, our bodies change, our appearance changes – and so does our self-image. Research indicates that understanding and effectively addressing appearance changes that occur during cancer treatment may help patients better cope with their disease. That is why we believe it is just as important for our clients to not only feel supported, but also feel beautiful both physically and mentally. By taking a holistic approach on wellness, The Pink Ribbon Place offers the following classes to help support the individual on personal well-being:

  • Iyengar Yoga w/ Kathy Taylor - Iyengar yoga, is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture and breath control. This class is open to all and is free!
  • Look and Feel Fabulous! w/ Dollhouse Hair & Makeup - Everyone deserves to feel beautiful. During this session, Ashley (our resident hair stylist) will discuss wig care and teach you neat tricks on how to style your hair in and out of treatment. Tommie (our resident makeup artist) will discuss your changing skin during treatment, your skincare routine, and makeup application... let's not forget those eyebrows, ladies! Space is limited, please RSVP at
  • Look Good Feel Better - American Cancer Society - Come and receive free instruction on coping with the appearance related side effects of your treatment.  A licensed beauty professional will teach makeup, skin care tips, and suggestions for using wigs and headwear.  A complimentary make-up kit will be provided.  Registration is required, please call the American Cancer Socity at 1-800-227-2345 for more information and dates.
