It’s private, it’s discreet…and goes way beyond the hair. It’s about taking control when you are a cancer patient.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 3, 2010
Amy Gibson, founder of CreatedHair.com and Salons expands her private recovery hair wigs salon in conjunction with Premiere Oncology by opening a second facility at their research affiliate, Pacific Oncology and Hematology Associates Inc. (POHA) in San Diego.
The international wig designer and country’s leading personal consultant to women afflicted with medically-related hair loss opened a salon earlier this year at Premiere Oncology. Seeing “a really big difference” with the new salon, Robbie Gluckson, Executive Director of Premiere Oncology Foundation says, “We want support services in every part of our patient’s life that are the best of class—and that’s where Amy Gibson falls and why we partnered with CreatedHair.com.”
Regarding patients' experience with Created Hair Salons, Gluckson adds, “It’s a combination of her many years of experience working with cancer hair loss and her own experience of living with Alopecia. Amy makes patients feel better when they’re done with the consultation…they walk in with such a heavy burden and walk out in a completely different place feeling empowered and in control.”
More than simply providing hair wigs for those with hair loss, Gibson teaches clients what to do before losing their hair, ways to strengthen re-growing hair, how to have intimacy while wearing a wig and a way to feel whole and good about themselves in spite of what can be a debilitating loss of self image, sensuality and confidence.
Gibson, who suffers from medically-related hair loss since the age of 13, consults, sells wigs online and operates her personal brand of private salon in Los Angeles including one at the unique alternative medicine facility, Beneveda Medical Group. She says, “Over 40 million women are living with traumatic hair loss in the U.S. alone. Taking my image guidance and counseling into these initial cancer treatment centers is the first step towards developing this model at a national level.”
CreatedHair.com Salons are personal, private, discreet and by appointment only.
