At the Cancer Integrative Medicine Program at Rush University Medical Center, we believe in the importance of healing the whole person in mind, body and spirit. The mind-body connection is especially important during cancer treatment.
Complementary therapies can enhance traditional cancer treatments by reducing the mental and physical stresses that often accompany them. Our program is committed to providing patients with a variety of complementary, integrative therapies — including acupuncture, biofeedback, guided imagery, counseling, massage therapy, hypnosis and yoga — that address their unique needs, during all stages of cancer care.
The following are just some of the benefits of complementary therapies:
- Relieve stress
- Ease muscle tension
- Reduce anxiety
- Decrease nausea
- Reduce pain
- Increase energy
