Integrative Medicine for Cancer Care

A Whole-Person, Team-Based Approach to THRIVING!

What is Integrative Medicine?

Integrative Medicine is evidence-based healthcare that focuses on treating the whole person.  Working as a team, the patient and integrative practitioner work with your oncologist to consider all appropriate therapeutic and lifestyle approaches to achieve optimal health and healing.

Research has shown that Integrative Medicine is effective for symptoms related to cancer care, including:

  • Pain
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Post-surgical healing
  • Caregiver fatigue/burnout
  • Balance
  • And much more!

We currently offer informal education sessions, group treatment sessions, and self-care presentations throughout the week at the University of Maryland Greenebaum Cancer Center at 22 S. Greene Street in Baltimore.

Group treatment sessions available include:

  • Creation of customized integrative self-care plans
  • Therapeutic dialogue including supportive therapy, cognitive behavioral techniques, positive psychology, EFT, identification/implementation of strengths and more
  • Mind-Body techniques such as guided imagery and mindfulness practices
  • Expressive arts: journaling, coloring, drawing, painting
  • Sound therapy with singing bowl

Fight caregiver burnout!

Family Members and Cancer Center Staff are also eligible to participate in these services!

Ask us about one-on-one services, too!
