Integrative medicine, part of palliative care, is associated with our S.P.I.R.I.T. Program: Supportive, Patient, Integrative, Rehabilitative, Intervention, Therapies.
Research shows that integrating medical science with gentle complementary therapies may accelerate the healing process. These therapies are aimed to help individuals achieve a balance between the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of health.
They do not interfere with any ongoing medical treatment, only enhance it.
Our palliative care nurses are highly trained in therapeutic massage, healing energy work such as therapeutic touch, Reiki, guided imagery, mind/body therapies, meditation techniques, conscious breathing and aromatherapy. We also offer a wide selection of healing music.
Memorial Hermann Cancer Centers are accredited by the American College of Surgeons’ (ACoS) Commission on Cancer (CoC). This rare distinction is given to cancer programs that uphold the highest standard of care for patients. When you choose Memorial Hermann Cancer Centers for your cancer treatment, you can rest assured you will receive the best possible care delivered by a compassionate team of caregivers in a calm, healing environment.
