Integrative Oncology

Combines the use of nutrition, supplements, meditation, music therapy, yoga, acupuncture, massage, and Tai Chi as strategies for you or your family members to better tolerate cancer treatment and symptoms.  These treatments are often focused on treating the symptoms of the disease and side effects caused by the treatments of the disease. The supportive oncology team can help guide you to access these resources. The team is also involved in research to evaluate the efficacy of these treatment modalities.
