Dealing with cancer is stressful – on your body, mind, and spirit.  It’s so important to care for ALL of you through our healing touch programs. Massage and Reiki can lift your mood and decrease anxiety, enhance your sense of well-being, and improve your quality of life. Taking time to relax can benefit you in countless ways.

About Our Program

Healing Arts

There are many benefits of treating yourself to an oncology massage. Evidence based to help some patients reduce neuropathy, headaches, and treatment related side effects as well as help with sleep and pain issues, we are pleased to offer 30-minute massages to those participants that are actively in treatment at no cost.

We are also pleased to offer a Reiki session to those in active treatment. Reiki is an eastern energy practice believed to increase the receiver’s flow of their own energy for the purpose of relaxation and stress reduction. Studies have shown that Reiki can reduce stress, help with balance, and promote well-being. You remain fully clothed during your session and the practitioner may apply a light touch or none at all.
