Saint Alphonsus Health System

Integrative Care

The Cancer Care Center provides multiple support services that have an integral role in our ability to care for you during treatment. While conventional radiation, chemotherapy and hormonal therapies physically fight your disease, we also integrate evidence-based complementary therapies that will help your fight in healing body, mind and spirit. We also offer programs that can assist you with an inward focus and healing, such as mindfulness based stress reduction, restorative yoga, massage therapy, creative expressive activities, guided imagery and patient and family counseling.

Listening and sharing with others who also face the challenges associated with cancer can greatly enhance your overall sense of well being, so our support groups offer useful information as well as a supportive atmosphere. In addition to our caregiver and patient support groups, we have a special support group for breast cancer patients and a supportive expressive group which combines art and support.
