Holistic Therapies for Complementary Care

Holisitic Therapies for Complementary Care

We believe that complementary therapies can be a valuable part of our patient treatment, from cancer care to behavioral health. We have offered Reiki and pet therapy programs for a number of years, but have recently added healing yoga and access to acupuncture as services for our patients. We will be completing a pilot study of holistic nursing on our inpatient oncology unit, which will include such techniques as aromatherapy and guided imagery and we will be using the results of this study to guide future program offerings.

We have also offered Virtual Reality to help laboring mothers in our Rowley Family Birthing Center, and in our Pediatric Department by our Child Life Specialist, Michelle Ferguson.

As virtual reality continues to gain momentum across the board, its benefits are being tapped by healthcare professionals to allay fears, reduce anxiety and relieve pain. Video by FORBES.
