Our doctors and nurse practitioner are specialists in integrative cancer care. They can provide you with guidance on how mind-body medicine, massage, exercise, and acupuncture could support your recovery and health. We have designed our integrative therapiesclasses, and workshops to be used along with surgerychemotherapy, and radiation.

You might be facing a new diagnosis, or you may be a longtime survivor coping with lasting effects from your cancer. In either case, our Integrative Medicine Service offers you options that enable you to actively participate in your care.

Benefits of an Integrative Medicine Consultation

In a consultation, we will talk with you and your family about the side effects that concern you. Together we create a custom, holistic care plan that includes recommendations for classes and private therapies that fit into your life.

At your appointment, you and your doctor will discuss:

  • Using integrative therapies proven to be effective for managing symptoms and side effects;
  • Adopting a healthy lifestyle during and after treatment with exercise, yoga, and tai chi;
  • Using mindfulness for managing stress and improving your sleep; and
  • Proper use of herbs and dietary supplements to minimize risks and maximize benefits.

At every turn, our integrative medicine team is here to help you navigate the road ahead. And the earlier we get started, the faster you may begin to see — and feel — results.
