What do massage, healing touch and Jin Shin Jyutsu all have in common? Besides being integrative medicine (IM) modalities, they’re an unexpected pleasure for many patients at the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center and so popular another $100,000 in funding is needed to expand their services.
The new funds will go toward broadening the scope of the Inpatient Integrative Medicine Program to include acupuncture, which research shows relieves pain, nausea and stress.
“Cancer patients more often than not say IM has made a world of difference in their recovery process,” says Jean Marie Rosone, LCSW, coordinator of integrative oncology.
