What is Integrative Medicine?
The term integrative medicine may also be referred to as “complementary therapy” or “alternative therapy”, but there is a difference! Professionals who practice integrative medicine blend these techniques with mainstream methods of treatment. Integrative medicine is not intended to replace conventional treatment, but rather to be used together to help promote wellness and relieve discomfort.
Below is a list of recommended services for those living with cancer:
- Associative awareness technique
- Breast massage therapy
- Healing Touch/Reiki
- Lymphedema therapy program
- Manual lymphatic drainage
- Nutrition Therapy Consultations
In the event that a diagnostic mammogram indicates the need for further testing, patients have immediate access to additional breast diagnostic imaging procedures as well as on-site specialists including our fellowship trained dedicated breast radiologists, breast surgeon, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists.
