The CancerConnects Complementary Therapy Program provides free voucher awards to adult cancer patients in Central and Northern NY for a variety of specific complementary therapy treatments.
Central to complementary therapy is the concept of overall wellness, and the relationship between mind, body and spirit. These therapies are used to help cancer patients manage symptoms, reduce side effects, and restore and promote a sense of control and vitality. Additionally these therapies foster positive healthy attitudes that increase overall well-being. They work in tandem with a patient’s medical plan and are never intended to replace conventional treatments.
These therapies are typically not covered by health insurance. CancerConnects is proud to offer these services free to patients who otherwise may not have access to them. A panel of complementary therapy practitioners have agreed to provide their services at a reduced rate for cancer patients who participate in this program. The services offered through the Complementary Therapy program include massage therapy, Reiki, healing touch, foot reflexology, yoga therapy, acupuncture, and virtual meditations.
