Integrative Therapies

Often, the most successful healing involves the whole person-mind, body and spirit. Integrative medicine combines the science and technology of conventional cancer medicine with the holistic approach of complementary therapies to meet individual needs. Many cancer patients welcome integrative therapies into their cancer treatment plan as a way to improve overall health and quality of life.

Because every patient is unique, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, an integrated treatment that is effective for one patient may work differently for another patient with the same condition. Cancer patients can choose from a wide range of therapeutic options for help to fight their illness. These include mind/body interventions, massage therapy, yoga, nutrition, music therapy and acupuncture.   Talk to your nurse or doctor about any integrative therapies before starting.
