Mind-Body Medicine for Esophageal Cancer
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), we understand that an esophageal cancer diagnosis can cause anxiety and stress for you and your caregiver(s). We believe in treating the whole person, and we support you in body, mind and spirit.
Every patient has the opportunity to meet with a member of our mind-body medicine team. During this meeting, you will have the opportunity to share any challenges you are experiencing and learn about the esophageal cancer support groups, counseling and programs we offer.
We provide individual, couples and family counseling to support you during esophageal cancer treatment . You and your mind-body medicine practitioner will share an open and totally confidential dialogue about challenges related to cancer or other areas of your life. Caregivers may also meet with a mind-body therapist. At CTCA, we believe it is important that caregivers are given the emotional tools they need to support their loved ones.
You may also participate in a variety of esophageal cancer support groups. These counseling sessions are dedicated to specific topics and provide an open forum to share your experiences with other caregivers and patients.
Our mind-body medicine services also include several ways to help you reduce stress and improve your quality of life. Just a few of the esophageal cancer therapy and counseling programs available include:
- Guided imagery
- Deep breathing exercises
- Laughter therapy
- Reiki Therapy
- Animal-assisted therapy
Our mind-body therapists work closely with your entire cancer treatment team and are here to support you in making ongoing care decisions. In addition, they can connect you with qualified cancer support groups and practitioners in your area once you return home.
