What an extraordinary time this is. The spread of COVID-19 has quickly led to a public health crisis associated with disruption of normal routines and schedules. The fluidity of the situation has left many feeling anxious and uncertain. During this time, please remember to take care of your physical, spiritual, and emotional self.

Although many of our Integrative Health programs are currently postponed, we encourage you to promote wellness within yourself and your community. Practice healthy eating, exercise, get outdoors. Take deep breaths, meditate and practice gratitude. Stay connected. Stay well. We hope to be back to our regular programing soon.

Massey's Integrative Health program combines cutting-edge medical care with evidence-based complementary therapies that address the physical, mental and spiritual needs of our patients. Integrative approaches can help ease treatment side affects, relieve stress and support overall well-being.

Massey does not endorse all integrative and complementary practices. We only recommend those that are known to be safe and have the potential to improve health when used alongside, and never in place of, professional medical care. All cancer patients are advised to consult with their physician before starting any integrative practice, as some may interfere with medical care.
