We understand that life is different after a diagnosis of cancer. Memorial Sloan-Kettering offers a wide range of programs for breast cancer patients and their caregivers.
Integrative Medicine Service
Our Integrative Medicine Service complements mainstream medical care by addressing the physical and emotional symptoms associated with cancer and its treatment. We offer a number of complementary therapies including various types of massage, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, meditation, visualization and other mind-body therapies, music therapy, and nutritional counseling, as well as classes such as yoga, t'ai chi, and chair aerobics.
Help for Older Patients
A diagnosis of cancer is difficult at any age, but older patients face unique challenges. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is committed to providing cancer patients aged 65 and older with the treatment, facilities, and support they need. We offer the services of a multidisciplinary geriatric team, which includes physicians, clinical nurse specialists, social workers, nutritionists, and psychiatrists, as well as members of the Pain and Palliative Care Service and the Integrative Medicine Service. The programs and care the team provides focus on the needs of elderly cancer patients.
