Complementary and Alternative Medicines (CAM) are some of the most commonly used forms of therapies among cancer patients. These therapies are used in conjunction with conventional medicine and are considered safe and effective.
At the OSUCCC – James, survivors can explore CAM therapies such as tai chi, shiatsu (acupressure) and yoga. Survivors may discover the benefits of other therapies, such as meditation, guided imagery, stress- reduction techniques and the healing power of the mind.
These mindfulness practices may:
- Alleviate pain and depressive symptoms
- Foster feelings of optimism and hope
- Encourage a sense of inner peace
- Promote relaxation and well-being
