Complementary therapies

Cancer affects more than just your physical health. It also can take a toll on you psychologically and spiritually. Studies have suggested that addressing your psychological and spiritual health can help in the preventive and recovery process from cancer and other diseases.

Complementary therapies through the HonorHealth Virginia G. Piper Cancer Care Network can help you. They’re designed to relieve your symptoms, help alleviate your pain or treatment side effects, and improve your overall physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. You’ll also find support and educational groups to provide information, encouragement and understanding when you need it most.

A specialist will assess your strengths and stresses. Working together, you'll create a plan of care and identify which therapies will best suit your needs.

If you have ever had a cancer diagnosis, you can participate in any complementary therapy free of charge.
