Research shows that complementary therapeutic methods can be extremely effective for decreasing anxiety and stress, and improving fatigue and physical functioning for individuals undergoing cancer treatment. These services have special benefits for cancer patients, who are already experiencing both physical and emotional issues during their treatment. As part of their care plan, physicians may refer patients to Cancer Navigators’ for participation in a new complementary care program.
The program provides the following complementary services at no cost to the patient, with the specific service tailored to the patient’s individual symptoms:
