We help you achieve your best health by providing ways for you to take part in your healing. Integrative care is a physician-directed program based upon the latest research and focuses on healing the whole person. This area of medicine draws on the fields of nutrition, stress management, physical fitness, massage therapy, acupuncture and many other non-traditional therapies. Combined with your traditional cancer care plan, integrative care may help to:
- Manage symptoms, such as pain, nausea and fatigue
- Improve quality of life
- Enhance the effectiveness of your cancer care treatment plan
If you do not have benefits to cover Integrative Care services, please contact us to learn more about your financial assistance options.
