what we do
Within the context of integrative cancer care, pain is addressed as a condition requiring careful diagnosis and treatment. Working closely with a skilled provider can help patients ease or eliminate acute discomfort through medication and other therapies. Relaxation techniques that patients can practice on their own, and hands-on methords such as massage therapy, can also soothe sore muscles and ease pains that are associated with their particular diagnosis.
