Memorial Sloan Kettering Counseling Center
Our Counseling Center offers individual and family counseling sessions to help people with pancreatic cysts and their families address the problems they may encounter in adjusting to life during and after treatment.
Our Integrative Medicine Service complements mainstream medical care by addressing the physical and emotional symptoms associated with the diagnosis and treatment of any type of growth. 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.
